Nitrogen tank

What is a nitrogen tank?

Nitrogen tank ( Nitrogen tank for sale  ) for laboratory equipment for the storage of liquid nitrogen. In order to store the nitrogen supplied by the local gas supplier, a nitrogen tank is used which is prepared, if possible, in a room inaccessible to the public at a constant temperature. The tank volume used by most dermatologists in Germany has a volume of 30 liters.

The moving nitrogen tank is also suitable for argon. With superior vacuum insulation and long-term vacuum protection. Certified in accordance with the European Pressure Equipment PED Directive. Transfer the nitrogen tank in a non-pressurized position with the transfer cap in situ.

liquid nitrogen tank

Since liquid nitrogen is a compact and easily transportable source of nitrogen gas, it is an ideal refrigerant that can freeze semen, blood, egg cells or sperm for freezing. 

For example, transport food can be frozen just as easily.
Particularly powerful CPUs, the main processor of a computer, can be cooled with liquid nitrogen to achieve higher clock rates with lower power consumption. In general, there are countless other areas of liquid nitrogen use. 

Advantages of using a nitrogen tank

  • Efficient exhaust gas cooling
  • Low evaporation rate (0.6% only)
  • Strong transport structure of the tank
  • Compact Container Dimensions
  • Integrated safety and vacuum sealing device
  • Superior container insulation through multi-layer vacuum insulation and computer-optimized thermodynamic design
  • The inner and outer tanks of each have been separately tested for helium not leaking
  • Nitrogen tank for storing and transporting nitrogen, argon and oxygen

Nitrogen tanks: structure and size 

Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless gas that makes up about 75% of the mass of the air we breathe. It hardly interacts with other substances and is therefore in demand in many technical areas. 

Depending on the need for gas, customers can order and store raw materials in different sizes. The smallest form of delivery is gas cylinders, which mainly cover small and occasional needs. If commercial and industrial companies consume more than 100-200 cubic meters of technical gas per week, they can use nitrogen packages.

As a rule, there are 12 gas bottles of 50 liters in a fixed frame connected to each other. It can be drained through a common valve, enabling operations to save time and money in various operations.

If you need more gas, you can rent or buy a nitrogen gas tank. On demand, the containers can store more than 50,000 cubic meters of nitrogen and are particularly suitable for large commercial and industrial companies.

Space Saver: Coolant Nitrogen (LIN)

Unlike gas cylinders, which store raw materials under high pressure, nitrogen gas tanks store coolant liquids. They are created by cooling the source gas to a temperature below 196°C.

 As this happens, the nitrogen condenses and 690 liters of gas are converted into 1 liter of liquid. It can be stored in a space-saving manner with a pressure of 18 to 36 bar. 

In comparison, in gas cylinders and gas cylinder packages, nitrogen is stored at a pressure of 200 to 300 bar, which must meet very high requirements.

Effective insulation protects against evaporation

When liquid nitrogen (LIN) is stored in gas tanks, some of the gas is heated. It evaporates and turns into gas. To prevent this and to keep the environment as liquid as possible, storage tanks need very effective insulation.

 It contains perlite found in the space between the outer and inner shells of large double-walled nitrogen tanks. The casing itself consists of a layer of nickel, aluminum or stainless steel on the inside and a layer of structural steel on the outside. The latter is stable. Maintains the shape of the tank and protects it from external influences.

Large nitrogen tank: storage tank volume overview

Nitrogen gas tanks are available in various sizes for industry and commerce. There are 3,000 liter storage tanks that release about 2,000 m3 of nitrogen gas.

 But those interested can rent or buy systems with gas tanks of 80,000 liters. The latter stores more than 50,000 cubic meters of gas and is particularly suitable for large commercial and industrial companies. The table below provides information on typical container volumes and the volume of LIN gas that can be stored.

evaporator to extract nitrogen gas

If the cooled liquefied gases are converted to the gaseous state, it requires a lot of energy. They take this from the environment – more precisely from a heat exchanger or evaporator.

 The latter usually consists of several deflected tubes to which the plates are connected. They transfer heat from the environment to the technical gas, thus preventing nitrogen tanks from freezing.
If the extraction speed is too high, the described environmental evaporators are no longer sufficient. In this case, cooled liquefied gases can also be heated with hot water, steam or electric evaporators. Modern solutions save more heat and prevent systems from freezing.

Liquid nitrogen tanks for laboratories, pharmaceuticals and technology

Many commercial and industrial companies require nitrogen as gas from storage tanks. However, liquid nitrogen (LIN) is used in various pharmaceuticals, research, and laboratories.

 Small amounts may be stored in rotary flasks or liquid nitrogen tanks. They are mostly double-walled circular containers with a space between the inner and outer casing. The latter reduces the inlet heat and ensures the evaporation of only a small amount of liquid nitrogen.

Different sizes of liquid nitrogen tanks

Just like nitrogen storage tanks, liquid nitrogen tanks are available in different sizes. In addition to smaller containers for working with liquid nitrogen, there are larger containers for transportation and storage.

Nitrogen vine for storing biological samples in liquid nitrogen

Special containers are used when it comes to storing biological samples such as eggs or sperm. 

In addition to liquid nitrogen (LIN), they also have space-saving classification systems. Whereas smaller containers for transportation and short-term storage hold about 80 2-ml ampoules, long-term storage contains more than 23,000 ampoules of the same volume. The latter is particularly suitable for freezing and storing semen and oocyte samples

Safety tips for using nitrogen tanks

If people are exposed to an environment around 200°C, it will immediately result in cold burns without proper protective clothing.

 If the gas escapes unnoticed, it transfers oxygen in the gas phase. The consequences are respiratory problems and even suffocation.

 To reduce the risks associated with the use of nitrogen refrigerant from gas tanks and other storage containers, users should consider the following:

Important security instructions

Work on gas tanks and use liquid nitrogen   only with protective clothing   (cooled gloves, face mask, bib and tight shoes)!

Never work in nitrogen gas tanks or wet storage containers

Use gas detectors to detect volatile gases in the atmosphere

In the event of an accident, the first   thing you need to do is remain calm and act cautiously   .

 First of all, the injured should be brought to a warm environment. If possible, paramedics should remove clothing from the wound and cover the burn with a sterile bandage.

 You can then warm the skin with lukewarm water or body heat. After the initial treatment, the emergency physician will perform the following professional care.

Nitrogen tanks application

Nitrogen is used in different areas today due to its properties. In the gaseous form, the raw materials are required for many kinds of metal heat treatment.

 For example, when tempering, hardening, spitting, welding or welding. In addition, large tank nitrogen is also used in the packaging industry.

 This raw material is used as a protective gas in semiconductor production and is even used in many applications in electrical engineering.

Cooling bath and storing eggs and sperm

To cool biological samples or other products or processes, users in different regions also rely on refrigerant nitrogen (LIN) in liquid form. 

For example, in cooling baths, it is used to trim workpieces and ensure complete compatibility in the metalworking industry. Liquid nitrogen is also used in laboratories and research centers to cool biological samples.

 In medical and reproductive technology, it is also possible to store sperm and egg cells in refrigerated containers filled with nitrogen.

Health: liquid nitrogen for cold animals

Anyone with chronic pain, mental illness, or cold-fluid sensitivity is likely to know it from another area. Because liquid nitrogen is used in the treatment of arctic cold in short-term medical treatment.

 The sauna consists of a small room into which patients enter. Then your body is exposed to extremely low temperatures. This treatment, which lasts for a few minutes, is aimed at stimulating the metabolism and blood circulation. It should strengthen the immune system and release endorphins.
