Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division - Blanketing



Many industries use a wide variety of dangerous chemicals in the manufacture of products. Blanketing with an inert gas, such as nitrogen, is often used to ensure the chemical integrity and maximize safety. Nitrogen tank blanketing controls the oxygen concentration and humidity within the vessel, protecting the product from contamination, degradation, and chemical change. The reduced oxygen level minimizes the chance of explosion. A nitrogen blanket can also be used to balance tank volumes and prevent collapse during unloading.


ISOCYANATES BLANKETING: Isocyanates are highly reactive acids that change physical properties when combined with oxygen and moisture, and are potential explosion hazards in the presence of oxygen. Minimizing the concentration of oxygen (below 5%) and water vapor in the void volume can eliminate these issues. 


PARKER SOLUTION:  A Parker nitrogen generator supplies a continuous stream of dry (-58° dewpoint) nitrogen, creating an inert head-space that ensures chemical integrity and decreases the fire hazard.
