Nitrogen for blanketing and transporting goods
In the context of global trade, more and more goods are being transported over long distances by ship or lorry. These ships and lorries often contain large quantities of bulk goods, such as ore, coal and cement, or even liquid goods such as crude oil and chemicals. Dry bulk materials and dusts as well as liquid chemicals and oils are always a considerable fire and explosion hazard. The danger can be prevented if contact with oxygen is avoided. Due to its high level of inertness, nitrogen is used in this context for headspace filling of cargo holds and liquid tanks.
The risk of microbial infections as well as oxidative and enzymatic reactions is increased during the transport of many foodstuffs if there is contact with oxygen. This can result in quality losses and the spoilage of beverages and solid foodstuffs. By blanketing transport tanks and cargo holds with nitrogen, this risk can be minimised or eliminated.
With our nitrogen generators, we supply high quality solutions for the stationary and mobile production of nitrogen for different applications, including for low volume requirements.
