Inertisation

The addition of an inert gas prevents chemical processes, such as oxidation. An inert gas like nitrogen has infinite applications for many different industries.

Solution

Inertisation through nitrogen

Oxidation is one of the biggest challenges for many (production) processes. Substances should not come into contact with oxygen, because it will accelerate the aging process of the product, affect the results or start a chemical reaction.  

An inert gas, such as nitrogen, is a gas that does not initiate a chemical reaction. This makes it suitable for serving as a buffer between a product or process and the outside air, to protect it from external influences. 

Inertisation in different industries

Applications of inertisation vary widely. Take, for example, packing stations, where we add nitrogen to packaging to extend the shelf life of fresh products. Products such as soft fruit age less quickly as a result, which means they retain their quality longer.  

Hospitals and laboratories often use an inert gas to carry out medical tests, so that the results are not influenced by external factors. With an inert gas, such as nitrogen, we create an environment for the research object or medical application ( like a 3D printer), where, among other things, oxygen and bacteria have no chance to cause a chemical reaction or to influence the research conditions.  

For the manufacturing industry, inertisation can also play an important role in protecting processes that must take place free of oxygen. For example, by equipping tin baths with a nitrogen blanket, oxidation will be prevented from occurring.

Customized advice

Inertisation prevents oxygen from triggering an aging and/or wear-and-tear process and protects a product or process from external influences. Presscon will be happy to advise you on the possible application of nitrogen as an inert gas for your product or process.
