The application of carbon molecular sieves to the separation of nitrogen from air has provided an outstanding breakthrough in the supply of inert gas for on-board duties particularly for LPG and LNG bulk carriers and special product carriers.

A self contained unit delivers a continuous supply of inert gas to the space to be protected and can be installed during construction of a new vessel or as a retro-fit to an existing vessel. The inert gas typically contains from 3% to as little as 0.1% oxygen, and trace amounts (less than 2 vpm) of moisture and carbon dioxide, making it ideally suitable as a non-corrosive purging gas for ship-board duties.
