Mobile Nitrogen Generation System

This mobile nitrogen generation system is capable of producing 204 scfm of 95% pure nitrogen at 140 psig. It includes a Sullair 425H screw compressor with a Cat C4.4 turbo diesel engine, a Generon nitrogen membrane cabinet, Sullair mist eliminator and micron filters, 400 gallon buffer tank, Kubota 11kW diesel generator and Hannay hose reel. The entire system is cold weather rated and includes an automatic condensate drain system to prevent freezing in cold climates. We mounted the system on a custom built all steel trialer with tandem 7500lb axles.

What is mobile nitrogen generation system?

A mobile nitrogen generation system is a transportable gas generation package that is designed to take compressed air, remove the condensate and oxygen to provide high purity nitrogen gas for a variety of applications. Our system uses a 142HP diesel engine driven Sullair flooded-screw compressor to produce 200 scfm of compressed air at 150 psig. This air is treated through an after cooler and a set of separators and filters before entering a membrane-style nitrogen gas generator. This gas generator pre-heats the incoming air to remove moisture then removes the required oxygen content to provide 95% pure nitrogen gas at 140 psig. The nitrogen can then be sued to evacuate product from tanks or for tank leak testing after repairs or maintenance is completed.

What are benefits on mobile nitrogen generation system?

The advantages of a mobile nitrogen generation system are:

  • Portability – our design is completely self-contained and can easily be transported from site to site
  • Cost Efficiency – When large volumes of nitrogen gas are required, pressurized tube trailers must be brought to a site. These can be expensive and sometimes hard to come by. Our mobile generation system provide as much volume as is required without multiple trailers and relying on third party contractors to provide the gas.

Our Mobile Nitrogen Generation Trailer Project

This system was designed specifically for tank car leak testing. It is capable of filling a 33,000 gallon pressurized railcar to 50 psig in about 1.5 hours.

The package uses all diesel engine power for the compressor and generator, allowing it to be used in most locations, including refineries and ensuring no outside power is required to operate and only a single fuel is necessary for operation.

To ensure the system could be used in any conditions or climates, all of the equipment is outdoor rated and we included automatic condensate drains as well as heat tracing and insulation on the air piping and filtration to prevent condensate from freezing and damaging the system. Additionally, the air compressor is equipped with an air inlet preheater for operation in cold climates.
