    Ceramic sintering

    I have a sintering oven for ceramic using Nitrogen flow 8,000 liters / minute, the volume is 0.6 cubic meter. The pressure is 30 bar. My question is if to use battery of nitrogen gas or nitrogen generator?

    The choice of the gas source is dependent on the amount of production/runs that you are planning to take and the economics. If you are going to run the furnace daily for 24 hours then a nitrogen generator may be suitable. For experimentation a bank of cylinders is much more convenient and flexible. Additionally consider availability of cylinders to your place of work and the lead time.

    I hope this helps.

    Pardon me, but those specs seem very high:
    Nitrogen flow 8,000 liters / minute, the volume is 0.6 cubic meter. The pressure is 30 bar.

    That is changing the gas in the 0.6m^3 volume ~13x a minute!
    I am in the US, so 30 bar is 435psi.  You would go through a
    typical in a flash.  Our nitrogen cylinders typically hold 230ft^3
    or ~6.5m^3 at ~2500psi or ~170bar.

    Are you sure about those original specs?
