  • Why use Nitrogen in petrochemical and chemical industry?

    The inert gas properties of Nitrogen makes it a must have for the chemical and petrochemical industry. Nitrogen is also beneficial for the following reasons:

    • Nitrogen helps prevent explosions by keeping hydrocarbons and chemicals liquids from reacting to oxygen during transportation and storage. 
    • Nitrogen can be used as a substitute when hydrostatic testing cannot be used.
    • Nitrogen allows faster cooling of the process catalysts saving you hours of shutdown time. 
    • Nitrogen foam inerting makes it possible to carry out hot work on hydrocarbon handling systems in complete safety.
    • Nitrogen reduce the weight of fluid in the wellbore, allowing the well to flow.

    What are the main advantages of generating Nitrogen onsite?

    • Many petrochemical & chemical projects are based in remote locations and transporting nitrogen to these locations comes at a huge financial and environmental cost. Opting for onsite nitrogen generation will therefore allow you to save costs whilst ensuring that your brand remains ethical.
