OXYGEN GAS PLANT

PSA Oxygen Gas Plant work with Pressure Swing Adsorption technology. Which ensure continuous supply of oxygen with high purity. We produce highly economical oxygen plants. These generators absorb nitrogen with the help of two absorption vessels that are filled with most efficient zeolite molecular sieves. 

During the Oxygen Gas Generation Process, the air is separated from nitrogen with the help of zeolite molecular sieves. This involves two towers filled with zeolite molecular sieves. Which adsorb nitrogen. The oxygen generated is 95% pure. When nitrogen saturates one tower it is purged. The plant then changes over to the other tower. Which helps in continuous oxygen generation.

How A psa Plant works

Air contains 21% Oxygen, 78% Nitrogen, 0.9% Argon and 0.1% other trace gases. Oxair An Oxygen generator separates this oxygen from Compressed Air through a unique process called Pressure Swing Adsorption. (PSA).

The Pressure Swing Adsorption process for the generation of enriched oxygen gas from ambient air utilises the ability of a synthetic Zeolite Molecular Sieve to absorb mainly nitrogen. While nitrogen concentrates in the pore system of the Zeolite, Oxygen Gas is produced as a product.

Our PSA Oxygen generation plant use two vessels filled with Zeolite Molecular sieve as adsorbers. As Compressed Air passes up through one of the adsorbers, the molecular sieve selectively adsorbs the Nitrogen. This then allows the remaining Oxygen to pass on up through the adsorber and exit as a product gas. When the adsorber becomes saturated with Nitrogen the inlet airflow is switched to the second adsorber. The first adsorber is regenerated by desorbing nitrogen through depressurisation and purging it with some of the product oxygen. The cycle is then repeated and the pressure is continually swinging between a higher level at adsorption (Production) and a lower level at desorption (Regeneration).
