PRISM Membrane Applications

Among all the other nitrogen supply modes, industry veterans turn to membrane separators when they need a reliable high purity nitrogen supply that is mobile, low maintenance, customizable to volume, and appropriately sized.

Oil and Gas

Oil exploration and transportation involves a lot of industrial work in close proximity to flammable materials. Nitrogen gas reduces the possibility of combustion and promotes safety in the oil and gas industry.

General Inerting

In many industrial applications, the use of oxygen is potentially dangerous. Nitrogen gas displaces oxygen and all of the corrosive or harmful qualities that go along with it.

Shipboard Nitrogen Systems

When cargo ships carry highly flammable fuels across the ocean, PRISM® Membrane separators generate a nitrogen safety blanket to prevent ignition.

Beer Dispensing

Heavy beers benefit from being pressurized with nitrogen, resulting in a silky and pleasingly carbonated beverage, straight from the tap. Nitrogen also benefits the beverage industry by preventing rapid aging. (Also, be sure to ask us about nitro-brewed coffee!)

Tire Inflation

Tires inflated with nitrogen maintain their pressure better than tires inflated with regular air. This benefits the trucking and passenger car industry because tires will last longer and require less maintenance.

Food Preservation

Foods are harvested and packaged throughout the year and nitrogen keeps them fresh until they reach the kitchen table. This allows food distributors a much appreciated time extension in distribution.

Aerospace Fuel Tank Inerting

Pumping nitrogen into the fuel tank of airplanes removes the risk of fuel vapor combustion onboard commercial and military airplanes.

Frequently Asked Questions

“What is the dew point of the nitrogen that is produced by the membrane?”
The dew point varies slightly with nitrogen purity. At 95% purity, the nitrogen will have at least a -70°F dew point. Operating at 99% will further lower the dew point to below -100°F. For systems requiring extremely low moisture levels, membrane air dryers can be installed in series with nitrogen-generating PRISM membranes.
