Inerting/Blanketing

Like conventional fuels, biomass feedstocks can be hazardous if not handled appropriately. Nitrogen is an inert, nonflammable gas that can be used to replace air in storage tanks and piping used for flammable or potentially self-igniting biomass or other waste materials. Inerting/blanketing with a nitrogen atmosphere reduces the risk of fire and explosions and often leads to a decrease in insurance premiums. Also, because moist air is kept out, equipment corrosion is reduced. Our engineers can help you specify the optimal nitrogen inerting/blanketing system to meet your needs.
