On Site Gas Systems have a range of nitrogen generators and oxygen generators that are suitable for use in a wide range of industries and applications. One industry that is seeing enormous benefit is the coal mining industry that turn to nitrogen generators to fight against underground fires or to prevent these fires from occurring in the first instance.
Recently, in the USA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) chose On Site Gas Systems to develop a high volume, high purity nitrogen generator, for underground coal mine use to inert behind coal mine shaft seals. This initiative is in support of The Mine Safety and Health Administration’s (MSHA) recently strengthened regulations in the USA regarding sealing and inserting of unused underground mines.
On Site Gas Systems was suited for this application given their extensive experience designing nitrogen systems coupled with their direct experience in inerting behind the seals of coal mines along with multiple applications of inerting a coal mine after a fire.
On Site Gas Systems have designed customised nitrogen generators for dozens of industries in a multitude of applications and these systems are sold in Australia through On Site Gas Systems Australia, who has a fast growing number of local installations in a wide variety of industries.
According to Rodney Rodrigues, General Manager, On Site Gas Systems Australia, On Site Gas Systems have expertise in producing and delivering nitrogen at the point of use at the customer’s specified purity, pressure and flow. These systems are designed and built under the supposition that they must operate for decades in the most remote locations in the world, under the harshest environments.
