OXYGEN AND NITROGEN MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Raw material used is Atmospheric Air.
Air is a mixture of gases and contains 78.03% Nitrogen and 20.99% of Oxygen. It is compressed and then impurities such as moisture, Carbon dioxide, and oil are removed. The air is free from impurities is called as treated air. The temperature of compressed treated air is reduced to a very low temperature of -165 degrees centigrade to obtain liquid air. Liquid air contains 40% oxygen and therefore called as Rich Liquid.
The next step is to separate oxygen and nitrogen from liquid air in the distillation column. The column consists of two parts called as lower column and upper column. The liquid air is collected at the lower column and is fed to the upper column after subjected to further cooling by passing through an expansion valve. In the upper column liquid oxygen and gaseous nitrogen is separated. In the top part of lower column liquid nitrogen is condensed. This contains 99% nitrogen which is called as Poor Liquid. Once the required purity of each liquid is achieved oxygen and nitrogen are filled in to cylinders after converting to gaseous form.
