Bumping up air pressure from 100psi to 115 psi

I’m working at a place where I need a nitrogen generator. To get the optimum nitrogen flow output it needs 115 psi of inlet air.


Our building CUP generates 100 psi at the outlet in the lab where this nitrogen generator will be installed.

Is is possible to bump up the pressure to 115 psi by adding another inline compressor? Please do elaborate on your answer.

Once again.... input air flow

Sorry if I confused you.

How much air flow at 115 PSI does the generator need on the input side?

Thanks for replying

The nitrogen output from the generator will be remain steady at 100 psi (which is what we need for our instruments) as long as I can get the air inlet pressure bumped to 115 psi from the current 100 psi that we get from the in-house CUP.

What air flow is needed to get the optimum nitrogen flow at that 115 PSI input?

The the correct compressor solution depends on knowing that, Kumar.
