I'm adding a high definition TD Ultracut XT100 plasma to my Dynatorch table and am considering purchasing a Nitrogen generator instead of using bottles.
There are a lot of tire N2 generators available that meet the required purity and psi so that is the direction I'm investigating. Suitable generators running between 5k and 10k.
Has anyone done this?
Love to hear about anyone's experience in this regard. I do know some laser cutters have gone this route and are very happy not to be moving bottles around.
Many thanks, Anthony Howe

I guess no one cuts stainless with a high definition plasma cutting machine or else they have a better supply of nitrogen than I do.
A little surprised Jim Colt, encyclopedia of metal cutting, didn't have an opinion.
In any case I have ordered a Nitrofill N2 generating machine to use in the place of bottles and will report back on it success or failure.
Thanks!
