Increasing oxygen demand
OXYMAT has experienced an increasing growth potential in the aquaculture market that will increase fivefold within the next ten years. Due to biomass constraints (MTB) in the cages, breeders set out larger fish than before. Bigger salmons use more oxygen and thus, oxygen demand increases through the supply chain. The use of oxygen is essential during the transportation of salmon by well boats as well as various processes to avoid the growing problems with sea lice.”
To meet the increasing oxygen demands on the PSA market we have decided to update our design and production drastically. We are therefore proud to present the first low pressure PSA (LPSA) generator with the lowest power consumption on the market. The new oxygen generator allows fish farmers oxygen supply on-site ensuring a higher growth ratio in the cages or land-based tanks.
OXYMAT generators enable an uninterrupted reliable source of oxygen produced directly at the fish farm making the farmers independent from external gas suppliers.
This new line of generators will provide our customers with the same high gas quality at a dramatically reduced power requirement, as low as 0.55 kWh per produced kg of oxygen at 2.7 bar(g) outlet pressure at purities up to 95%.
The materials are stainless steel and sandblasted powder coated black steel, used to optimize generator quality and minimize the requirement for cleaning and maintenance.
This new series of low pressure PSA generators is a result of intensive research and product development, and combined with the trustworthy collaboration with our customers, we are proud to announce that the results are game changing. OXYMAT has invested more than EUR 2 mill. in rebuilding its factory in Denmark, to become the most automated PSA factory in the world, only to improve both product and quality.
How does it benefit you?
- Power consumption is 40 % lower than any other oxygen generator on the market
- All pipe sets and valves are made from stainless steel
- All pressure vessels are made from sandblasted and powder P265 in C4 grade
- The system is modular and can be expanded if capacity demands change
- System is produced in Denmark
- Shorter delivery times
- Outlet pressure from 2.7 to 6.0 bar(g) at purities up to 95%
- Power consumption from 0.55 kW/h oxygen
- Still same competitive price as before
This game changing 40% reduction of power consumption for oxygen, will not only bring OXYMAT in the lead worldwide, it will also create a new product on the market.
OXYMAT is already known as a leader in the on-site oxygen and nitrogen business, but there are several followers on the market offering PSA technology. With the new product offered from OXYMAT, a new class has emerged on the market, closer in energy consumption to large sized VPSA systems but price wise closer to traditional PSA solutions.
There are no arguments for purchasing a traditional PSA oxygen and nitrogen system anymore, once you become familiar with the new OXYMAT Low Pressure Swing Adsorption system – for most customers it would simply not make any sense.
How did we do it?
- Simplification of our production – 80% less parts
- Automation – state of the art welding and bending robots
- Modularize our system – 2 base systems that can be expanded based on your wishes
Due to a high demand for our new models, we will deliver the new PSA only to existing customers until August 2017. Hereafter we will welcome new customers.
To learn more about this game-changing development, stop by our booth during Aqua Nor 2017 where we will have the new system live, visit us at the Pavilion of Denmark at Aqua Nor in Trondheim, Norway on August 15-18. Hall C, stand 222.
