To complete their industrial process several industries need to use and store chemicals that are flammable. The storage tanks of these chemicals use Nitrogen for blanketing purpose. The most important benefit of Nitrogen blanketing is that it prevents the fire or explosion of the stored chemicals. It also protects the tank against corrosion and chemical oxidation. The conventional way to purge nitrogen was reliance on the supply of nitrogen from high-pressure nitrogen tanks. These high-pressure cylinders are dangerous and extremely heavy to handle. This supply of cylinders relies on the delivery from a third party which may charge a lot. In such cases, installing on-site N2 generators to get Nitrogen for blanketing is a cost-effective and efficient option.
Industries that require Nitrogen for blanketing
- Petroleum Industry
- Food and Beverage industry
