Industrial Inerting Applications

Inerting applications for industrial processes

Industrial inerting applications that require nitrogen with purities of 95% to 99.9% can be best served by membrane generator systems. The systems are fully autonomous and require no logistics to maintain the supply of nitrogen. Once installed, the client has no need to worry about gas stock and reorder because the nitrogen is produced onsite. The systems can be purchased outright or taken on a monthly service fee with our FLOXAL offer. Air Liquide systems are operated in over 2,000 locations worldwide.

Small Nitrogen Systems


  • Air Liquide small nitrogen (N2) membranes are a fully integrated system that provides a continuous supply of N2 as demand changes
  • It is a reliable, low-cost N2 supply solution when cryogenic purity is not required
  • Small integrated N2 standard system offers plug and play installation with full purity assurance

Technical features

  • Purity range 95% to 99.9%
  • Flow rates 10 Nm3 / hr to 400 Nm3 / hr
  • Maximum operating temperature 55°C
  • Moisture Content < 10 ppm (< 1 ppm optional)
  • Oil Content < 0.003 ppm (not measurable)
