Atlas Copco Expands PSA Nitrogen Generation Offer

Atlas Copco’s NGP+ nitrogen generator range is getting bigger and even better. Building on the success of its premium PSA nitrogen solution, Atlas Copco is introducing two new models to its NGP+ line-up. Along with launching the NGP 160+ and NGP 200+, Atlas Copco has also added advanced features to the entire midsize NGP+ range to give customers more flexibility, reliability, and low cost of ownership.

Atlas Copco’s Premium NGP+ range introduces new midsize models and advanced features.

The NGP+ is Atlas Copco’s premium Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) nitrogen generation solution. Offering a guaranteed gas purity from 95% to 99.9995%, it is available in flow sizes up to 4,802 SCFM (for a single unit). Over the years, the NGP+ has built a reputation of superior performance and low cost of ownership. Its expanded and enhanced midsize range (27- 482 SCFM) continues this tradition with even more customer flexibility and reliability.

With floor space being such a scarce commodity in many production facilities the option of covered outdoor installation an important one for many of our customers. The low ambient temperature setting allows customers to install the NGP+ outside (in a covered area) in temperatures down to -10°C/14°F.

Today’s midsize NGP+ models feature the state-of-the-art Elektronikon® Touch controller with easy gas purity selection and advanced connectivity options. The Elektronikon Touch optimizes the NGP+’s performance and continuously measures gas purity to protect customers’ production. It also monitors the feed air to safeguard the integrity of the adsorbent. Other newly available options include a room oxygen alarm and the ability to produce ultra-dry nitrogen.

What has not changed is the NGP+’s industry-leading low total cost of ownership. The generator and its software are designed to utilize the premium Carbon Molecular Sieve adsorbent with maximum efficiency to ensure minimal air consumption per unit of nitrogen generated. In addition, the NGP+ comes with a number of unique features, such as the Variable Cycle Saver algorithm. VCS optimizes the PSA cycle during lower demand and in colder temperatures, giving customers up to 40% additional energy savings. The stand-by mode also avoids energy waste.

“For customers who need high-quality nitrogen, there is no better solution than the NGP+,” said Ben Christianen, Product Manager Industrial Gases with Atlas Copco’s Industrial Air Division. “It offers a guaranteed nitrogen purity at the lowest energy cost and with superior reliability and flexibility. It’s a true best-in-class product.”
