Inerting, blanketing or purging with inert gas such as nitrogen or argon can be essential when handling flammable or toxic materials, dealing with other fire and explosion hazards such as combustible dust, or ensuring product quality in a sensitive material.
Nitrogen and other inert gases do not easily react with most materials and can be used to help preserve product quality during production, storage, transportation and final packaging in the rubber and plastics industry.
Nitrogen blanketing systems (continuous purge, pressure control, or concentration control) can be used to prevent fires, explosion, or degradation of products during their production, storage, and transport. 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.
Whether you’re blanketing a tank, process, or hazard such as combustible dust, our applications engineers can optimize the equipment and nitrogen supply for your nitrogen blanketing system. Options include:
