Benefits of Onsite Nitrogen Gas Generation In a matter of days, many laboratories that depend on nitrogen gas for their research can go through a cylinder of nitrogen causing a project to be interrupted while switching out an empty cylinder. In some situations, research may be paused waiting for a new batch of nitrogen gas cylinders to be delivered. Nitrogen gas cylinders can also provide an inconsistent purity once they reach the lower end of
