The LP560ME Marine Nitrox Generator™ uses a rotary screw low pressure (LP) compressor, air/oil aftercooler, (optional) refrigerated air dryer, and filtration to provide the membrane system with a source of clean, pressurized feed air for separation. The air is filtered to CGA Grade D or better air quality prior to entering the wall-mounted membrane system so it will not damage or plug the membrane fibers. Specifications for Grade D air are provided in the Operational Manual appendix.
The LP560ME membrane system is rated for a maximum feed air pressure of 300 PSI (21 bar) and has been configured to work well with the 175 PSI (12 bar) maximum pressure delivered by the LP compressor. A back-pressure regulator is used to adjust the amount of air the screw compressor produces to meet the appropriate levels for various O2% nitrox production. The air is then heated to a temperature that provides stability over a wide range of ambient conditions, is optimal for membrane permeation, and prevents moisture condensation.
The nitrox system allows for efficient and cost-effective nitrox production using electric power, without the hazards or expense of partial pressure blending with stored high pressure oxygen (O2). Instead, the system uses a semi-permeable membrane to produce nitrox from air. A portion of the nitrogen in air is separated out, leaving an enriched air nitrox mixture. Produces 22-40% enriched air nitrox or can also pump air.
