Fetures of PSA
• High-performance pursuing design
Supplies nitrogen gas of 97 to 99.99% purity at low cost.
• Compactness (Package type)
Space-saving. Just connect power and piping to start operation (cooling water unnecessary).
• Good operability
Fully automatic, unattended operation. Quick start-
up. Timer device for one-week operation (optional).
PSA is not in the range of application for the High Pressure Gas Control Law.
• Full lineup PSA systems
Principle of PSA
MSC (Molecular Sieving Carbon) has a large capacity of oxygen adsorption, and difference between oxygen adsorbing speed and nitrogen adsorbing speed is also very large. Under a pressurized condition, oxygen is adsorbed in a short time, prior to nitrogen. Thus, nitrogen gas can be separated from air. By returning the pressure to normal, adsorbed oxygen can be easily desorbed and MSC is turned back to original state.
First, MSC (Bellfine MG) is filled into plural adsorption towers of PSA. Then adsorption and desorption are repeated alternately in a cycle that matches with the specific characteristic of the MSC. High purity nitrogen gas is thus obtained continuously.
