Nitrogen is the 7th most abundant element found in our solar system and our atmosphere is made up of 80% nitrogen gas. Nitrogen is used in various industries to manufacture products used daily by everyone. Let’s take a look at 5 every day uses for nitrogen gas.
Preservation of Food
Nitrogen gas is used to help with food preservation by preventing oxidative damage leading to food spoiling. A man-made atmosphere is generated using nitrogen gas and carbon dioxide to help in the preservation of packaged food.
Present in every major pharmaceutical drug, nitrogen gas is broadly used in the pharmaceutical industry including antibiotics and anesthetic.
Many may be suspires to learn that nitrogen is used in the manufacturing of electronics. Nitrogen is used during the manufacturing process to create an inert atmosphere to prevent oxidation that may lead to electrical failure.
Stainless Steel Manufacturing
Nitrogen is used to remove impurities during the manufacturing process of stainless steel. One of the top qualities of stainless steel is corrosion-resistant and is a result of nitrogen gas being introduced into the manufacturing process.Nitrogen gas has proven to be a beneficial element in a variety of industries and is plentiful. Upgrade your facilities by installing an Onsite Nitrogen Gas Generator. These systems are designed to cut down on the coast purchasing nitrogen cylinders, the safety risks involved in the transport of nitrogen cylinder, and provide consistent delivery of high-quality purity nitrogen gas for your manufacturing process.
