Nitrogen

Inerting/Blanketing

Nitrogen is a clean, dry, inert gas and has long proven effective at displacing oxygen in tanks, hoses, and piping. Blanketing with nitrogen reduces the potential of combustion, maintains a positive pressure in storage tanks and prevents vaporization and loss of product to the atmosphere.

Nitrogen

Nitrogen is a widely used industrial gas in the Oil and Gas industries. Nitrogen's inertness and friendly environmental profile make it suitable for a host of applications. Since it does not react with most materials, nitrogen is an excellent blanketing and purging gas that can be used to protect valuable products from harmful contaminants. One of its most important uses is to eliminate flammability risks in reactor vessels and storage tanks.
