More and more chemical, product and gas tanker vessels require clean and dry inert gas to maintain a safe environment, and ensure the product quality of their cargo. Air Liquide offers membrane-based nitrogen generators compared to traditional methods of generating inert gases, and are used by world-class OEMs who supply the maritime industry. Air Liquide applications for the marine industry include inerting tanks and piping systems on board and purging and blanketing of storage tanks.
Designed specifically for maritime customer needs, the compact design of nitrogen membrane systems enables the units to be located below the main deck with the ship's other utility operations. Air Liquide's nitrogen membrane systems can be retrofitted into existing ships or integrated into the design of new vessels.
