Inert Gas Generators

The RCR ‘Lo-Flo’ Inert Gas Generator has been developed to inertise areas in underground coal mines prior to seal off the mine ventilation system to minimise the potential of methane gas explosions.


Typical inert gas specifications produced by a RCR Lo-Flo Inert Gas Generator are:

  • Gas volume – 1,800 m3 per hour
  • Delivery pressure – 100 kPa
  • Oxygen content (O2) – less than 2%
  • Nitrogen content (N2) – 75%
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) – 12.5%
  • Gas temperature – ambient + 20°C


Other possible applications for the RCR Lo-Flo Inert Gas Generator include:

  • Purging LP gas storage vessels prior to internal inspections
  • Purging sewerage digesters prior to internal maintenance
  • Purging fuel storage tanks prior to internal inspections
  • Dilution of process gas streams to adjust calorific value or chemical composition


Client Benefits

The RCR Lo-Flo inert gas generator offers many benefits to mine operators:

  • Delivered to site as one rally operational skid or trailer mounted machine
  • Ready to produce cooled inert gas within hours of arrival at site
  • Quiet in operation
  • RCR Energy offer highly trained
  • operators
  • Able to discharge inert gas to a very accurately determined single point, or multiple points if required, from the surface
