Producing your own nitrogen means being in full control of your N2 supply. This could be beneficial to a lot of companies that need nitrogen on a daily basis. What does that mean for your company? When nitrogen is generated in-house, you do not have to rely on third parties for the supply, therefore eliminating the need for processing, refills and delivery costs. One way of generating nitrogen is through Pressure Swing Adsorption.
PSA Nitrogen Generators operate on the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) principle to produce a continuous stream of nitrogen gas from compressed air. Two towers are filled with carbon molecular sieve (CMS). Pretreated compressed air enters the bottom of the on-line tower and follows up through the CMS. Oxygen and other trace gasses are preferentially adsorbed by the CMS, allowing nitrogen to pass through. After a pre-set time, the on-line tower automatically switches to regenerative mode, venting contaminants from the CMS. Carbon molecular sieve differs from ordinary activated carbons in that it has a much narrower range of pore openings. This allows small molecules such as oxygen to penetrate the pores and be separated from nitrogen molecules which are too large to enter the CMS. The larger molecules of nitrogen by-pass the CMS and emerge as the product gas.

Nitrogen Generators have a wide variety of applications, including serving as an inert replacement for air where oxidation is undesirable:
To preserve the freshness of packaged or bulk foods (by delaying rancidity and other forms of oxidative damage) - potato chips, nuts, snack foods and packaged salads.
To preserve the freshness of wine (by delaying rancidity and other forms of oxidative damage)
On top of liquid explosives as a safety measure - paints and solvents
The production of electronic parts such as transistors, diodes and integrated circuits (prevents oxygen and moisture)
Dried and pressurized, as a dielectric gas for high voltage equipment
Use in military aircraft fuel systems to reduce fire hazard.
