In the port of an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula, a plant covering several hectares is currently being built for the production and storage of edible oils and fats. Refining and storage produce highly flammable vapor-air mixtures which can lead to fires and explosions. Nitrogen (N2), which is pumped into the head spaces of the storage and process tanks as well as the widely branched pipelines, prevents this. For this, N2 is required in large quantities. To ensure that the right amount of inert gas is supplied at all times, the nitrogen is produced in the new refinery with the help of two Inmatec nitrogen generators on site.
