Nitrogen generators work together with compressed air systems to deliver a continuous supply of nitrogen for all industrial processes and applications. Just like air compressors, nitrogen generator maintenance is needed to keep it performing efficiently.

Although it is different for each generator and you should check the manual to see how often maintenance should be undertaken, we recommend around every six months.

Main Process of Nitrogen Generator Maintenance

Clean the Nitrogen Generator

By using a damp cloth to clean the equipment, you can remove any unwanted dirt and debris, and make sure all vents and controls can perform correctly. Remember to avoid the electrical components of the system when cleaning. 

Check the Control Panel

Check and monitor the status gauges and indicators on the front of the nitrogen generator to ensure that the system is working efficiently.

Check for Generator Leaks

Check your equipment for any warning signs of leaks and if you find any, get them fixed as soon as possible so you don’t lose any more nitrogen. Also, check the quality of the inlet air.

Change the Filters

Check your nitrogen generator system’s manual on how often to change the filters. Shut the unit down and follow the instructions; the majority of systems use a combination of carbon and coalescing filtration. Once changed, restart your system properly.
