Liquid Nitrogen Storage

Liquid Nitrogen StorageLiquid nitrogen has a variety of applications in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. However, given the correct circumstances, it can also become very volatile and pose a real threat of asphyxiation. It is essential, therefore, to make sure that we store and transport nitrogen correctly.

In this module we will look at some of the hazards and risks associated with nitrogen, and learn about the construction and components of the cryogenic tanks that make the safe storage and use of nitrogen possible.

Approximate course duration: 45 minutes.

Module One

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  • Define some of the properties of liquid nitrogen
  • Explain how a cryogenic tank is constructed
  • Identify various components of a cryogenic tank

Approximate module one duration: 30 minutes.

Module Two

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  • Identify the various components of a nitrogen tank and their function
  • Describe how a cryogenic liquid behaves in storage, under transfer and operational conditions

Approximate module duration: 15 minutes.
