Oxygen production for commercial purposes is done through several methods out of which cryogenic distillation technology is the preferred choice. There is no denying the fact that oxygen is extensively used in various industries not to talk of hospitals. There are also techniques such as pressure swing adsorption (PSA) or vacuum pressure swing adsorption (VPSA) but no technique matches the efficiency and reliability of cryogenic method of oxygen production. Since we are focused on delivering values like efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness, we use cryogenic technology in manufacturing our oxygen plants. The technology is based on the process of Linde & Claude, which was developed in 1930s.
There are numerous benefits or advantages of using cryogenic distillation technology. This is the only process that helps in generating oxygen on a large scale. Moreover, the technique also aids in generating oxygen with high purity. Oxygen nitrogen plants manufactured with this technology are fully automated requiring only a single semi-skilled operator. The plant machinery is also known for less power consumption and low maintenance. It requires bare minimum maintenance once in a while. It is guaranteed to endure over 2 decades. And, we provide after sales service during the entire life cycle of the machinery.
Cryogenic distillation technology is able to generate high purity oxygen by liquefaction and physical separation of atmospheric air into its constituents gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. After atmospheric air is taken into the air separation unit it is compressed. Now the air is passed through molecular sieves where impurities like hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide and moisture are removed. Next, the air is goes the heat exchangers where it is cooled to cryogenic temperatures. Then, the air is moved into a high pressure distillation column where it is separated into oxygen and other gases with oxygen forming at the top of the distillation column. Getting a thorough cryogenic plant machinery cost report is the most recommended option for you.
