The domnick hunter Industrial Division of Parker Hannifin will be showcasing some of its latest energy- and cost-saving technologies at Total Process & Packaging 2010, held on 25–27 May 2010 at the NEC, Birmingham. On show will be a selection of the company's cost-effective industrial nitrogen gas generators that have been proven to increase productivity and profitability in the process and packaging sectors.
In particular, the company will be exhibiting its latest MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS onsite nitrogen gas generators, which are designed to provide alternatives to traditional nitrogen sources. These proven technologies are suitable for use in a wide range of applications in the process and packaging industry, including modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), purging, blanketing and pressure transfer.
Producing on-demand nitrogen from compressed air onsite, the high-performance MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS ranges are suitable for small-to-medium and medium-to-large nitrogen requirements, respectively. Perhaps most importantly, this eliminates the need for traditional and expensive gas storage cylinders, dewars or bulk storage. As a result, customers using the gas generators can make significant reductions in the cost of using nitrogen, with a fast payback on a generator of between 12 and 24 months, and ongoing savings of up to 90 per cent thereafter.
In addition, the on-demand functionality of the MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS generators enables users to overcome the environmental issues associated with road transport of bottled gas and the unpredictability of fluctuating gas prices, while operating from a small compressor facilitates low energy consumption.
The systems are fully automatic, are easy to setup and operate, with the production of nitrogen being determined by the demands of downstream processes. This greater degree of control helps to limit waste and reduce overall energy consumption, while considerably extending the operating life of the unit, which is typically in excess of ten years. Similarly, maintenance costs are low, with only routine maintenance required, while the modular design of the MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS systems enables the installation to be extended as and when nitrogen requirements increase.
Parker Domnick Hunter has been supplying industry with high-efficiency filtration and purification products since 1963. Its philosophy Designed for Air Quality and Energy Efficiency ensures products not only provide users with clean, high-quality compressed air, but also with low lifetime costs and reduced CO2 emissions.
