How can I benefit from a nitrogen-based system if I’m already getting good parts at a reasonably low cost?

Tom Philips
Sr. Principal Applications Engineer

There are numerous benefits of using a nitrogen-based atmosphere system, including:

  • Independence from natural gas and related maintenance of generators.
  • Increased flexibility to change atmosphere compositions and flow rates to suit the process and material requirements.
  • Improved safety due to automatic nitrogen purge capabilities.
  • Elimination of toxic components such as carbon monoxide and ammonia, associated with the use of endothermic generators and ammonia dissociators.
  • Minimizing the amount of hydrogen needed to get the correct reducing power—due to nitrogen’s low dew point.
  • Reduced carbon footprint and also significantly reduced carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide emissions.
