Nitrogen Generator Cost Savings
In 2013, The price of purchasing nitrogen in a gaseous or liquid form can vary from $0.60 to $2.88 per 100 ft. The wide range in price can be a result of volume consumption, type of product, location, or vendor. In addition, this cost is strictly for the gas or liquid delivered and does not factor additional supply costs such as:
- Delivery Costs
- Monthly Cylinder / Tank Rental Fees
- Bulk Evaporative Loss
- Handling and Purchasing Labor Costs
- Additional Site Liability Insurance
A GN2 system will produce gaseous nitrogen at costs that range from $0.320 to $0.131 per 100 cubic feet. The exact price is determined by local power costs, compressor efficiencies, compressor and generator maintenance costs, and required nitrogen purity.
An average GN2 system has a return on investment (ROI) of 6 to 18 months. This rapid return–along with a 75% to 92% base reduction in nitrogen cost—makes the GN2 system financially attractive.
