PA3010 Membrane Separator

pa3010bOur PA3010 membrane product is conveniently sized for nitrogen or OEA systems that are restricted by space. It’s only about 15 inches in length, and about four inches in diameter. The product is available with either BSPP or NPT connection thread options.

The PA3010 has been used in applications such as beverage dispense systems, corrosion control systems, and small scuba diving systems. See the performance tables below for nitrogen flows and operating limits.



For High Flow Nitrogen Generation

Our PA6050 membrane separator is used in high flow nitrogen applications such as the following:

  • Controlled atmospheres for fruit preservation
  • Compression packages for oil and gas related inerting
  • Corrosion prevention in overhead sprinkler systems
  • Spray painting applications
  • Shipboard or offshore packages

This durable membrane product operates at temperatures up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit and/or pressures up to 350 psi. View the performance charts below and click to see the full data sheets for PA6050 with N1 fiber and PA6050 with P3 fiber.



New Wall-Mounted Membrane System

ecsOur innovative partner, Engineered Corrosion Solutions (ECS) recently commercialized a new wall mounted membrane system!

The “Fill and Purge” nitrogen membrane system displaces the oxygen in fire sprinkler piping to prevent corrosion.  The whole unit is conveniently sized and is well suited to inert dry sprinkler systems in retirement centers, shops, and other public locations.

It’s All About Nitro Coffee

joetapnitrobrewWe are thrilled to announce that our membrane has been selected for one of the most exciting developments in the beverage world, Nitro Coffee. Our partners, JoeTap and Micro Matic are cranking out countertop nitro systems designed for convenience stores, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, and offices.

These membrane systems have an increased safety and convenience factor when compared to nitro coffee systems that use nitrogen cylinders. There are no repetitive tank changes or lugging of heavy cylinders. The membrane unit generates nitrogen on the spot with a ‘set it and forget it’ mentality for system operators.

The best part about being involved in nitrogen applications like nitro brew coffee is that they are truly fun and innovative concepts. Nitro brew coffee is delicious and has even been compared to drinking a Guinness. Infused nitrogen enhances the silky smoothness in the beverage and there’s an added entertainment factor of experiencing the eye-catching cascade effect.



Patented Coating Application Technology Uses Nitrogen

eurosiderNitrotherm Spray by Eurosider is a patented coating application technology which utilizes our Prism Membrane separators. These innovative systems use nitrogen as the carrier gas along with controlled temperature settings to achieve flawless coating applications. The systems reduce wasteful over-spraying and decrease application time.

In a recent article, Eurosider discussed the success of Nitrotherm Spray systems in the wood furniture market.  The application thrived in furniture manufacturing facilities in Europe and is now expanding into the United States. Automotive painting is another successful industry where the Nitrotherm Spray systems flourish.  To learn more about Eurosider’s innovative membrane systems, visit their booth at the Automechanika, tradeshow this week in Frankfurt, Germany.


Membrane Systems for Many Applications

Our Norway division is known for building world class nitrogen membrane systems for shipboard, offshore, and land based oil & gas projects. But you may be surprised to know that they also build membrane systems for air dehydration, hydrogen recovery, and CO2 capture.  Each system application is detailed on their recently updated webpage. To learn more, meet the team at the upcoming SMM Maritime trade fair (booth 423) next month!
