Nitrogen Gas

Due to its inert properties, nitrogen gas is used in various industrial processes, such as cutting, purging, cooling, and cryogenic freezing.
Nitrogen (N₂) might seem like just another air component, but it’s a hidden powerhouse with many applications. DSW Industry delves into the world of nitrogen and explores its remarkable versatility.

More Than Just Air: Unveiling Nitrogen’s Properties

Nitrogen makes up a staggering 78% of Earth’s atmosphere. What makes it truly special is its inert nature. Unlike oxygen, nitrogen doesn’t readily react with other elements. This unique property translates into several valuable benefits:

Non-flammable: Nitrogen won’t ignite or contribute to combustion, making it ideal for safety in processes involving flammable materials.
Oxidation Fighter: Nitrogen is an inert gas that displaces oxygen, preventing or minimizing the oxidation of materials. This is crucial for preserving the integrity of various products.
Cryogenic Champion: Nitrogen reaches extremely low temperatures in its liquid form, making it perfect for cryogenic applications like freezing and supercooling.
