    Make your own pure nitrogen gas

    I am wondering if anyone is interested in building a pressure swing adsorber to make pure nitrogen gas. Typical applications for a shop would be for filling tires or having a non-combustible gas. If there is an interest I will put together a tutorial on it along with the supplies and materials needed for the task.

    That would be great! My son loves chemistry and this would be a great summer project we could do together!

    Yes, that would be an interesting machine to see. My interest in it would be for inflating tires.

    Done. I've been working on this for a few days.

    Here is the tutorial for building a pressure swing adsorber to make pure nitrogen gas from air.
