Nitrogen is an inert gas that barely dissolves in water and is not combustible. Therefore, it is an ideal gas for inertisations in different industries. Its low boiling point (-196ºC) makes it the ideal refrigeration agent for freezing and refrigeration processes.
The Nitrogen applies in various sectors:
– Chemical industry: Inerting or blanketing for flammable chemicals, bulk materials or powder, Temperature control in tanks and reactors, Freezing of pipes for repair and maintenance work.
– Welding and cutting: Auxiliary gas for laser and plasma cutting, Gas for root protection in pipe welding.
– Automotive and transport: Root protection in the welding of automobile components, Filling of aircraft tires and race cars.
– Metallurgy and metal industry: Heat treatment of metals to provide a surface of more quality and flexibility, Lace of metal pieces, Fine in the production of steel and aluminum.
– Environment: Recovery of volatiles (VOCs) from gas and vapor emissions, Recycling of plastics and tires through the cryogenic grinding process.
– Feeding: Freezing and refrigeration of food, Gas for food packaging in modified atmosphere, Cryogenic grinding of spices, Cryo Cooking with nitrogen in haute cuisine.
– Health: Cryogenic conservation of biological samples, Cryosurgery and dermatology, Propellant gas for medical devices.
– Pharmaceutical industry: Auxiliary material for the production of active substances, Inertization of equipment, Temperature control in reactors.
Bottles and liquid containers: Nitrogen in bottles and blocks of high pressure (200 and 300 bar) from a capacity of 1 to 235 m3. Also liquid nitrogen in fixed or transportable cryogenic containers (dewars) of various sizes.
Liquid supply: liquid nitrogen by tank truck offering cryogenic storage tanks of different capacities.
Supply On-site: For a greater demand of nitrogen exists installation of on-site generation plants.
Gas pipeline supply: To large consumer customers located in large industrial areas the supply is provided through a network of gas pipelines to ensure the greatest flexibility and reliability of supply.
