Chemical and Petrochemical Industry
Nitrogen is used for the generation of inert environment to allow avoiding interaction of chemical substances with oxygen, aimed at the provision of process safety. Nitrogen finds application by chemical substances transportation, and ammonia production. There also possible nitrogen applications, such as purging of process tanks and pipelines, drying and regeneration of catalysts.
Oil & Gas
Nitrogen is used in oil production for formation pressure maintenance and product recovery enhancement. This inert gas is widely used for the generation of inert blanket for the purpose of the explosion and fire safety provision by the use of process vessels and by handling operations.
Nitrogen finds application as a means of set pressure maintenance in oil and gas tanks, cleaning of tanks on tank cars and process vessels at LNG storage facilities, as well as for pipelines purging.
Nitrogen is used for the protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals during annealing, as well as in the neutral tempering, relieving, cementing, cyanidation, hard brazing, powder metal sintering, and extrusion matrix cooling.
Nitrogen is used for the protection of storage containers for raw and product materials, transportation of chemical products, and packing of pharmaceuticals
Nitrogen main applications in the electronic industry are the prevention of oxidation by semiconductors and electric circuits production, as well as purging and cleaning.
In this industry, nitrogen serves as a means of arc furnace electrodes cooling. Besides, it is used for the protection from oxidation in the production process and decreasing air temperature.
