Inerting in the Oil and Fats Industries

Inerting or blanketing with nitrogen provides two key benefits: improved quality and safety. Because nitrogen is an inert gas (and does not easily react with most materials including oxygen), it extends the shelf-life of fats and oils by preventing oxidative rancidity. Nitrogen blanketing also prevents fires and explosions. Air Products engineers can help make sure that your inerting and blanketing applications meet all performance standards while minimizing gas volume requirements and optimizing supply mode.

Nitrogen

Because nitrogen is inert and nonflammable, it enables safe storage and use of flammables. It can also prevent combustible dust explosions. Nitrogen also improves the quality and shelf life of air-sensitive materials. Our engineers can help you select the optimal supply mode to meet your needs.
