Inert Gas System on Ships (Shipboard Inerting)

Shipboard Inerting

Before nitrogen membrane technology, shipboard use of nitrogen for inerting propulsion, and bulk cargo combustibles, was dominated by combustion-based inert gas generators. On Site’s expertise in offshore N2 production and explosive and/or corrosive environments can ease the burden of design and build for shipbuilders, engineering firms and ship owners. Our experience with the military has given us the capabilities needed to design and build nitrogen generation systems that will withstand the harshest offshore conditions. We can design and build a nitrogen generator to your specs, or help you develop the specs for a custom nitrogen application design.
