Riding on the recent growth in the economy, the manufacturing plant in Singapore, located along Serangoon North Avenue 5, increases its manufacturing capacity in order to meet the demands of the market. As such, the plant has to cater for the extra demand of nitrogen gas requirement. INMATEC Nitrogen Gas Generator was chosen to provide K&S with the uninterrupted nitrogen gas supply at the purity of 99.5%.

K&S Facilities Manager Mr Daniel Wong commented "INMATEC Nitrogen Gas Generator was chosen as it provide us with a cost efficient solution in generating our gas supply from our existing compressed air. With its unique Touch Control Panel, it allows us to incorporate monitoring features, i.e Inlet/Outlet Dew point, Inlet Temperature and Outlet Flow measurements and this greatly enhances our understanding to our plant nitrogen production and consumption. "

The plant currently utilizes the nitrogen gas for blanketing during the equipment manufacturing and purging of storage boxes.
