Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and nonflammable gas which makes up 78% of our atmosphere. Yet this common and versatile gas also has an incredible range of industrial applications. Nitrogen in liquid form can be used to chill, freeze, and package many of our favorite foods and beverages. Nitrogen in gaseous form can be used in flammable furnace atmospheres for metal heat treatment or for inerting chemical reactors. Nitrogen is even indispensable to the fabrication of the semiconductor devices that drive our increasingly digital world.

Messer’s high purity nitrogen, available via bulk truck delivery, pipeline, or on-site production system, is used across a broad variety of industries. Our team has experience working with some of the most challenging applications around.

What are safety hazards associated when working with liquid or gaseous nitrogen?

Hazards associated when working with liquid or gaseous nitrogen include oxygen deficiency and asphyxiation, cryogenic burns, pressure build-up, and material embrittlement.  One critical safeguard when working with nitrogen is the use of oxygen monitors to detect an oxygen deficient atmosphere. 

Safety is a core value and embedded in everything we do at Messer. We are committed to the safe use of our products and set working standards that protect the safety and health of our customers, our people, and our communities. Here are some resources to find out more information on nitrogen safety:

“We increased production from 4,500 lb/hr average production to rates to 6,600 lb/hr, with peaks of up to 8,000 lb/hr. These production increases help give us the flexibility to respond to demand increases and tight labor markets.”
Wesley Simpson, Plant Manager, Tyson Foods North Little Rock, Arkansas
“With the support of Messer’s engineering team and industry expertise, we’ve been able to run these [spiral] freezers not only more efficiently to get more throughput, but also at a lower cost per pound while maintaining quality.”
Vince Nasti, VP of Operations, Nation Pizza & Foods, LLC
“We can run at full capacity and at the same time shorten our workday. Employees originally assigned to the freezer line have been repurposed to preparation… Our partnership with Messer goes back to my early days in the business, if we run into a problem, we contact Messer and get prompt support.”
Gianni Guglielmetti, Pierino president and Chief Operating Officer, Pierino Frozen Foods, Inc.
