Liquid Nitrogen & Cylinders
We provide the best Liquid Nitrogen in UAE
The boiling point of liquid nitrogen is -196°C. The liquefied form of the element nitrogen generated commercially by fractional distillation of liquid air is known as liquid nitrogen. It is made up of two nitrogen atoms that share covalent bonds, just like nitrogen gas (N2). Liquid nitrogen is sometimes referred to as LN2, LN, or LIN.
It’s used for a variety of activities, including cooling computers, removing undesirable skin, warts, and pre-cancerous cells in medicine, and studying the effects of extremely cold temperatures on materials in cryogenics.
It’s also becoming more widespread at high-end restaurants as a way to swiftly freeze food and drinks, as well as create a stunning cloud of vapour or fog when exposed to air. Because liquid nitrogen has a significant evaporation expansion ratio (one litre of liquid nitrogen can produce 700 litres of gas), only a tiny amount of liquid nitrogen has to evaporate within a room to create an oxygen-deficient environment. Because the boil-off of nitrogen gas can cause pressure to build up in a sealed container, insulated vacuum-jacketed pressure containers are employed to store it.
- Do not expose bare skin to liquid nitrogen or its vapours.
- Do not inhale liquid nitrogen vapours.
- Always wear the proper protective equipment including: a face shield (if a face shield is unavailable use goggles, not safety glasses); a lab coat; proper footwear and clothing; and cryo‐gloves which are designed to protect against extreme cold.
- The water repellent cryo‐gloves (protects against cold) and the 100% waterproof cryo‐gloves(protects against cold and splashes) are NOT designed to be immersed in liquid nitrogen.
- Always use tongs to remove items from liquid nitrogen.
- Always label liquid nitrogen containers.
- Always transport liquid nitrogen in an appropriate container (which must be
- properly vented. Use a cart between buildings and floors. Use the freight elevator, not the passenger elevator
- Immediately flush area thoroughly with copious quantities of tepid water (the water must not be hotter than 44C). In the case of frostbite, spray with water.
- DO NOT apply any form of direct heat.
- DO NOT rub affected parts either before or after warming.
- Protect any frozen parts with bulky, dry, sterile dressings. Do not apply to tightly.
- Seek medical attention.
