Bedford Nitrogen Generator
We’ve been installing and servicing the compressors, nitrogen generators and piping that hundreds of businesses across the region know they can trust every day, to keep running smoothly, since 1977.
We are partnered with Atlas Copco to offer installation across their range. But our service contracts can cover any manufacturer, offering you fixed-price peace of mind that your units are always in top condition and, should anything go wrong, we will have an engineer available whatever the time of day.
Nitrogen: essential to life and manufacture
Nitrogen is commonly used in lots of manufacturing processes, one of which is technology. As technology has advanced, and especially as it has become smaller, the need for high-quality manufacture has become greater. One of nitrogen’s many uses is to create a clean atmosphere for electronic component manufacture.
Although nitrogen is in the air we breathe, other parts, like oxygen and water vapour, can cause problems. In soldering, for example, those elements can degrade the quality of the join, causing oxidisation at the very moment it is created. By soldering in a nitrogen atmosphere, the quality of electronics can be assured.
Bedford’s history: the Middle Ages and beyond
With a history that stretches back to at least the Middle Ages, Bedford has no shortage of interesting tales. It is reputed to be the burial place of King Offa, famous for the Dyke, in 796. However, some even claimed a longer history. The Panacea Society, headquartered in the town, claimed it was the location of the Garden of Eden, and even had a terraced house maintained for the Messiah to live in after the Second Coming!
Today, its proximity to London, Luton, and Cambridge, along with road, rail, and air transport links has made it a centre for engineering, technology, and food industries.
