One of nature's most common chemical compounds, elemental nitrogen, accounts for a substantial portion of air. Gaseous nitrogen has been used in numerous industrial manufacturing processes, including beverage preparation, fertilizer production, pharmaceutics, oil and gas recovery, and electronics manufacturing.
What Is Nitrogen Blanketing?
Nitrogen for blanketing is nitrogen gas (N₂) introduced into an enclosed space to displace oxygen and create an inert atmosphere. The nitrogen blanketing process is often used during storing or transporting flammable liquids or chemicals, as it can help prevent fires or explosions.
Nitrogen generators are commonly used for this purpose. A nitrogen generator takes in air from the atmosphere. It separates the nitrogen molecules from the other gases through membrane separation or pressure swing adsorption (PSA). This nitrogen-rich gas is then sent to the storage vessel, displacing the oxygen and creating an inert atmosphere.
Nitrogen Blanketing in Industries:
Nitrogen is often used for blanketing and purging pipelines because it is inert, meaning non-reactive. In addition, nitrogen for blanketing is often used in chemical Industries, Pharma Industries, Heat treatment Industries etc.
How can MVS engineering help you?
MVS Engineering has been manufacturing nitrogen generators since 1977, with a long legacy of nitrogen generator installations in India and globally. MVS Engineering has supplied nitrogen generators for various applications such as nitrogen for blanketing, food processing, packaging, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, chemicals, power plants, steel plants, etc.
