Industrial Gases - NITROGEN (N2)

Download MSDSDownload MSDS

Nitrogen is the major constituent of atmospheric air, making up about 79% of the air. It Is colorless, odorless, non-flammable and non-toxic. Nitrogen is often used as an "inert" Gas due to its non reactive nature with many materials. However, Nitrogen can form Certain compounds under the influence of chemicals, catalysts, or high temperature. Commercial Nitrogen is produced by a variety of air separation processes, including Cryogenic liquefaction and distillation, pressure swing adsorption (PSA), and membrane Separation.
Nitrogen is supplied both as liquid and as compressed gas.

Nitrogen is an inert gas and major applications make use of this property of the gas.

  • Blanketing
  • Purging
  • Sparging
  • Inerting
  • Food Freezing/Storage
  • Shrink Fitting
  • Health Care Applications
  • Analytical Applications

Hazards Identifications
Compressed gas in high concentrations may cause asphyxiation. Extremely cold liquid and gas under pressure can cause rapid suffocation and severe Frostbite.
It is non-toxic, but may cause suffocation by displacing the oxygen in air.

Handling and Storage
Do not drop or roll containers on their sides. Never allow any unprotected part of the Body to touch uninsulated pipes or vessels that contain cryogenic fluids. Do not store in confined space. Cryogenic containers are equipped with pressure relief Devices to control internal pressure. Under normal conditions these containers will periodically Vent product.
Keep container below 50oc in a well ventilated place.
