Nitrogen is an inert gas that fills 78% of the Earth’s atmosphere. It has unique physical and
chemical properties that are different from other basic or acidic elements. Since nitrogen is mixed
with oxygen and other gases in the air, pure nitrogen is not naturally available. INDUSTRIAL ONE
Co., Ltd has consulted, provided and installed the Nitrogen generators to solve this problem.

A few notable industrial uses of Nitrogen

Food Packaging
Nitrogen is the best option for storing food products, to prevent spoilage of different foods and
beverages. These products are packed in the atmosphere of pure nitrogen, to retain their freshness and
food value for a long time. Oxidation can stale foods, which can be prevented by surrounding these
products with nitrogen.

Pharmaceutical Industry
The inert properties of Nitrogen gas makes it ideal blanketing gas in pharmaceutical application where it
is needed to prevent oxidation and degradation of chemicals and powder by atmospheric oxygen and
moisture. Protection is achieved by keeping these items under Nitrogen atmosphere.

Purging and Blanketing
Nitrogen is essential in blanketing and Purging of vessels in Chemical Industries. Nitrogen is used to
remove Oxygen from vessels before filling any chemical and also use to create Nitrogen blanket over
Chemical to avoid any flammable conditions.

Cement Industry
In cement manufacturing process, pulverised coal is used as a fuel. It has some volatile contents and
can catch fire easily in the presence of air (spontaneous ignition). Nitrogen is used as inert gas for
purging of coal mill, bag filters and fine coal silos to aid in fire prevention and also for fire mitigation
when required.

Heat Treatment
For Heat Treatment furnaces, INDUSTRIAL ONE CO.,LTD supplies Ultra High purity Nitrogen generator
producing Nitrogen from Air. This gas is very Dry, (-) 60°C Dew Point. Our special Nitrogen generator is
used in Heat Treatment processes.

The sharp rise in nitrogen gas prices as well as transportation cost in the market, it is very difficult
to find Nitrogen gas at an affordable rate. Hence, it is much wiser to buy a Nitrogen gas plant from
INDUSTRIAL ONE Engineering, which is a better investment in the long run.

1. Get continuous gas supply – The Nitrogen gas plant produces Nitrogen gas
continuously, as it can function 24×7. A PSA Nitrogen plant automatically switches to
another PSA vessel when one vessel is saturated with absorbed Oxygen and other
2. Availability of pure nitrogen – A Nitrogen gas plant produces only 95% – 99.99% pure
Nitrogen gas. Oxygen and water vapor are fully absorbed by the Carbon molecular
sieves of PSA vessels, which are periodically released back into the atmosphere. Then
the resultant gas is further processed to make sure of its purity.
3. No manpower needed – The Nitrogen generator is fully automated by INDUSTRIAL
ONE Engineering. It only needs to be switched on and it operates automatically. So, no
trained people are needed to run and monitor its operation, as it can be left unattended
all the time till it is needed to shut down.

INDUSTRIAL ONE, www.IndustrialOne.net, assists every client with total solutions from supply,
installation and maintenance of its Nitrogen gas generators. Thus, people can now save on
Nitrogen gas prices and continue with their production without any tension.

The Energy Observer boat can run for 6 years on nothing but wind, solar, and hydrogen


Serving as a beacon of sustainable energy, the self-powering Energy Explorer boat will set off on an epic 6-year journey this month.

Nobody could accuse Jérôme Delafosse of not having an adventurous spirit.

A professional diver and documentary maker, Delafosse is one half — with offshore racer and Merchant navy officer Victorien Erussard — of an ambitious duo who are setting off this month on an ambitious six-year quest, aboard one of the world’s most futuristic boats.

More: Like a floating Transformer, this yacht changes shape at the push of a button

“The Energy Observer boat creates energy onboard,” Delafosse told Digital Trends. “It has solar panels, wind turbines, a kite that converts the engines into hydro generators, and a hydrogen fuel system that uses decarbonized sea water.”


The converted, 100-foot multi-hull race boat will sail around the world, serving as a symbol of the power of renewable energy. By combining different sustainable energy sources, the Energy Observer is completely autonomous — while still being able to plot its own course and sail against the wind

In all, the vessel will make exactly 101 stopovers in 50 countries around the globe, ranging from Cuba to Goa — and everywhere in between. The Energy Observer will start by crossing the Mediterranean, before traversing the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

With a running cost of $4 million per year, it’s not going to be a cheap voyage, but Delafosse is confident the team will be able to able to cover the costs, although they’ve still got capacity for more financial partners.

Once the mission is over, Delafosse said that the Energy Observer boat could be rented out to people looking for a unique sailing opportunity. However, he hopes that the epic voyage will help do something a lot bigger than just advertise the boat itself.

“This isn’t only the first boat of its kind, but also an example of how these sustainable technologies could be used in houses, hotels and other applications on land,” Delafosse said. “Because we’re trying out all of this technologies, it’s like a floating laboratory [for the CEA-Liten research center in France.] We don’t just have the adventure of sailing, but also of testing these technologies in extreme conditions. That’s totally unique.”

Mercedes-Benz GLC plug-in hydrogen fuel-cell coming in 2017


Mercedes-Benz will start selling a plug-in fuel-cell version of its GLC compact crossover starting next year. The German automaker managed shrink the size of its fuel-cell stack by about 30 percent so that fits within “conventional engine compartments.” More importantly for green gearheads, the stack uses 90 percent less platinum. Additionally, the car will include a nine kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

Specs-wise, the Mercedes GLC F-Cell will have a combined range of about 500 kilometers (310 miles), including an all-electric range of about 30 miles and a hydrogen fuel tank that can be refilled in about three minutes. The model’s fuel-cell stack was developed in Vancouver with a Ford joint venture, and Mercedes says that, between its B-Class F-CELL and the Citaro FuelCELL-Hybrid urban, the company has collectively racked up more than 12 million kilometers (7.46 million miles) on fuel-cell power.

Word started surfacing late last year that the Daimler division was working on a hydrogen fuel-cell version of the GLC that was said to run about $76,000, or about 50 percent more than the conventional model. Mercedes-Benz hasn’t yet officially put a price on the plug-in fuel cell model, but you can take a look at Mercedes-Benz’s press release below.

In late 2010, Mercedes-Benz started leasing out its B-Class F-Cell conventional fuel-cell vehicle at a not-so-low rate of $849 a month, though Merc was throwing in free refueling and insurance. That front-wheel-drive model included a 100-kWh electric motor that was said to offer performance similar to a 2.0-liter gas-powered engine as well as a full-tank range of 249 miles. At the time, the company was estimated to have invested about $2.7 billion in fuel-cell technology during the previous 15 years.

Under the microscope: Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL: The fuel cell gets a plug

Daimler invests massively in green powertrain technologies: All Mercedes-Benz model series will be electrified

Fuel-cell technology is an integral part of Daimler’s drive system strategy. Because the advantages are clear: a long operating range and short refuelling stops as well as a broad spectrum of possible uses ranging from passenger cars to urban buses. A new vehicle generation based on the Mercedes-Benz GLC is being launched in 2017. The Mercedes-Benz engineers joined forces with partners in the Daimler competence network to develop a new, compact fuel-cell system which for the first time fits into conventional engine compartments. The GLC F-CELL features a large lithium-ion battery as a further innovation of the next-generation fuel-cell vehicles. Rated at around 9 kWh, the battery serves as an additional energy source for the electric motor and can be charged externally by means of plug-in technology for the first time. Together with the further developed intelligent operating strategy, the combination of fuel cell and battery system offers maximum efficiency and comfort. With this set-up, the GLC F-CELL achieves a combined range of around 500 km in the NEDC.

Daimler relies on electric mobility with fuel cell. Vehicles such as the B-Class F-CELL and the Citaro FuelCELL-Hybrid urban bus have together now clocked up in excess of twelve million kilometres, clearly demonstrating that the drive concept is ready for market. The next technology advance is now imminent: working together with partners from its global competence network, Daimler AG has developed an all-new fuel-cell system. Around 30 percent more compact than previously, it can be fully housed in the engine compartment for the first time. The fuel cell developers have also further optimised the performance and operating range. Furthermore, the cost of the innovative technology has been slashed thanks largely to a 90-percent reduction in the amount of platinum used in the stack. From 2017, Daimler will be unveiling the new-generation fuel-cell technology based on the Mercedes-Benz GLC.

World first: plug-in fuel-cell drive goes into production
A lithium-ion battery for autonomous operation is being used in an electric vehicle with fuel cell for the first time. The powerful battery has a capacity of around 9 kWh and is housed at the rear of the SUV to save space. It allows the GLC F-CELL to run on purely battery-electric power for up to 50 km in the NEDC and can be conveniently charged at a standard household socket, a Mercedes-Benz wall box or a public charging station. Two carbon-fibre-encased tanks built into the vehicle floor hold around 4 kg of hydrogen. Thanks to the globally standardised 700-bar tank technology, the tank in the GLC F-CELL can be refilled at a hydrogen filling station within just three minutes, which is about the same amount of time it takes to refuel a car with an internal combustion engine.

The combination of fuel cell and plug-in battery is ideal given the progressive development of the hydrogen filling station infrastructure. The innovative plug-in fuel-cell drive combines the advantages of both zero-emission drive technologies and, thanks to its intelligent operating strategy, continuously optimises the use of both energy sources in line with the current operating situation. The system also features a recuperation function, for example, which allows energy to be recuperated and stored in the battery during braking and coasting phases. In total, the GLC F-CELL achieves a combined range of around 500 km in the NEDC.

Global competence network: access to key technologies
Part of the Daimler AG strategy involves ensuring direct access to key electromobility components. During development and production of the innovative fuel-cell drive, Daimler AG is able to call upon its global competence network. The centrepiece of the technology, the fuel-cell stack, was developed in Vancouver, Canada together with partner Ford in the Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation (AFCC) joint venture. The stack is produced in the neighbourhood at Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell (MBFC). Overall responsibility for the complete fuel-cell-drive assembly and the hydrogen storage system is developed from the Daimler subsidiary NuCellSys in Kirchheim/Nabern, Baden-Württemberg.

The Daimler strain plant Untertürkheim is responsible for an establishment for the fuel cell system installation, also at the location Nabern. The hydrogen tank system consisting of carbon-fibre-encased tanks is produced at the Daimler Mannheim plant while the lithium-ion battery comes from Daimler subsidiary Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE located in Kamenz, Saxony. Daimler is currently working systematically to prepare for series production of the Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL. The family-friendly SUV suitable for daily use is produced at the Mercedes-Benz Bremen plant, which acts as the competence centre for the model series. The GLC has been rolling off the production line there since July 2015. Regarding to the drive system integration of the GLC F-CELL, the partner EDAG supports the factory Bremen and will settle in the immediate work area.

Full System Assessment for a Cost-Effective Operation

Improve your bottom line through energy assessments and upgrades that look at all areas of your compressed air system. Depending on the needs of your farm, you may spend a significant amount on energy consumption. By analyzing energy use on an annual basis, you can benefit from improved efficiency in various areas.

Considering that around 76 percent of the lifetime operating cost of an air compressor is from electricity, a complete compressed air system assessment will produce a number of options from eliminating air leaks to major system upgrades. By making some or all changes from a system analysis, the savings in energy can give you an attractive long-term return on investment.

Here is a brief list of some areas related to your compressed air system that could help you reduce energy costs on your farm.

Pneumatic tools and accessories
Proper maintenance and operation of air tools is one of the simpler ways to improve efficiency. Changes could include:

Buying new tools that are appropriately sized for the application – not oversized and using more air than needed.
Ensuring operators are trained properly on efficient tool operation
Cleaning and adjusting tools properly for the application on a regular basis
Installing local pressure regulators adjusted to the lowest pressure needed for the job
Having dedicated storage at the end-use equipment to prevent pressure loss systemwide
Implementing a preventive-maintenance plan to regularly check hoses and quick-disconnect fittings that are a common source of air leaks
Inappropriate end use
Eliminating wasteful applications of compressed air can offer quick savings with little expense. Some typical inappropriate uses are:

  • Unregulated and unnecessary blowoff
  • Cleaning work areas with compressed air

Leak detection and repair
Unplanned leaks in your compressed air system could be wasting a significant amount of air. Up to 30 percent of air produced has been attributed to leaking systems in industrial facilities that don’t perform regular leak detection and repair checks. In one furniture factory, 55 leaks were detected with 90 to 95 percent of leaks happening in the pneumatic circuits – not in the lines.

Your leak-management program should include:

Air storage
Short surges in air demand can be efficiently handled by properly sized air storage. This will reduce the frequent occurrence of wasting air through compressor unloadings. With pressure regulators and adequate storage – for an oil-flooded compressor: 4 gallons of storage for every 1 cfm of compressor capacity – you will be in the position to run a lean production line.

Equipment and controls
Upgrading your compressor or air system equipment may have you thinking about the major cost. While the price of new equipment and installation is certainly a considerable investment, it just may be the route you need to take for an efficient system. Even though you may have high upfront costs, the biggest expense of compressed air is mainly from the electricity needed to operate your compressed air system.

If you have an older system, you may not be getting the benefits of energy saving features like:

Automatic sequencing
Multiple stages of compression
Part-load controls – variable speed drive, turn valves, load/unload
Getting a thorough compressed air system assessment done will give you a plan to reduce your costs and have a more dependable production facility. Ideally, you’ll be able to use existing equipment more efficiently and implement practices and procedures that will reduce unnecessary demand.
