Innovative Renewable Energy Technology specialists, Biogas Products Ltd in Dudley have recently added a new MSS Nitrocube high pressure nitrogen generation system to their laser cutting operation.

Having used bundled gas cylinders to supply their fibre laser previously, Biogas decided that they would benefit from the flexibility and convenience of a Nitrocube system.

Tony Smith, Managing Director, comments ‘we often experienced some production issues and inconvenience directly connected with our use of bundled cylinder pack gas, we knew that our gas use was only going to increase so we felt that a change was needed’.

Tony continues; ‘MSS were able to demonstrate to us an excellent understanding of our nitrogen cutting gas requirement from early enquiry stage and this expertise has continued through to the successful installation and operation of our new Nitrocube system’.

MSS Sales Director, Chris Smith commented ‘Biogas needed a reliable and economic solution that also offers future proof capacity and our Nitrocube 2 system met their requirements very well. This model is extremely powerful for the floor space required taking up only 2.2×2.4m with stackable high pressure gas storage cylinders taking up less than 2x2m square space’.

The Nitrocube 2 system supplied provides high pressure nitrogen at 20m3/hour flow and 99.9975% purity which is ideal for high quality laser cutting, especially for thicker stainless steel. The system features 288m3 of storage at 300 bar pressure. All the latest generation MSS Nitrogen systems use the very best components available today which combine to make each system super-efficient. Typically using 25-40% less energy to generate higher purity nitrogen than other systems available. The new system also features MSS’ unique touch screen control panel that allows remote system performance and status monitoring.

Tony comments further ‘the MSS Nitrocube has now proven itself to be more economical than bundled gas cylinders and also delivers higher quality nitrogen which has improves our cutting quality and reduced the amount of cleaning up needed. We now don’t have to worry about running out of gas as we have our own dedicated supply which generates the right quality nitrogen only when we need it’

With over 1200 systems installed in the UK and US, MSS are global leaders in high pressure generation systems for laser applications. 20 years of experience manufacturing in this market now result in MSS equipment being considered as the most efficient and advanced nitrogen generation systems available today.
