WUT students create a Mobile Liquid Nitrogen Generator

They needed a source of liquid nitrogen for demonstrations and research. So they decided to construct the necessary device themselves. Ten months later they proudly showed off Nitrogenos to the world. The idea of the Scientific Society of Chemical and Process Engineering is already attracting interest from the industry and has recently won an award at the StRuNa 2016 competition for societies and other student organisations from all over Poland.

The project was initiated and coordinated by Michał Wojtalik. “I called some colleagues, asking them to do this project with me,” he recalls, “and they agreed. At the time they had no idea how much work awaited us.”

Practice differs from theory

The students performed design calculations for individual system components and verified them through computer simulations. On the basis of this documentation, they builtNitrogenos. “The fact that we could do it ourselves was the best part,” Wojtalik says. “Designing is cool, but then you don't have the thrill that you get when you first start up your own device.”

WUT'S researchers work on a range of scientific topics which are explored in different areas and on a different scale. Often the outcome of these helps with the development of new technologies or everyday products to come into being.
