Benefits of Using Nitrogen Gas
Nitrogen is considered the most effective gas for use in tank blanketing, due to its non-combustible properties. Some of the most common uses for blanketing with nitrogen include:
- the prevention of oxidization in cooking oils and other liquids
- preparation of products for transport
- final packaging of food products
- prevention of harmful contaminants entering the storage space.
Benefits of Using a Nitrogen Generator
Over the years, technological advances have allowed more industries to harness the power of nitrogen through efficient N2 generation systems. South-Tek Systems is a leading manufacturer of high purity nitrogen generators, which are often used in tank blanketing applications. The benefits of using a nitrogen generator for your facility's blanketing system include increased safety, cost effectiveness and reliability.
Because a nitrogen generator creates its own supply of nitrogen from the surrounding air, the risk of running out or having to handle high-pressure nitrogen cylinders is eliminated. Additionally, since nitrogen is a dry, inert gas, the chances of combustion are practically eliminated. And since N2 generators from South-Tek Systems are sized appropriately to comply with Nitrogen purity and PSIG flow requirements, they are designed to work reliably for 20 years or more.
