Safety is the number one concern in hazardous chemical environments. Blanket gas reduces the oxygen content in the otherwise volatile gas mixture in refinery, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and petrochemical applications. Inerting provides a measure of safety in chemical, processes and storage.
For safety, the use of nitrogen or carbon dioxide are effective blanket gases. To mitigate the opportunity for explosions and fires, using an oxygen sensor can give you the assurance that your process runs safely and can reduce the overall cost of blanketing.
