MVS has supplied a Nitrogen Inert Gas Plant to one of India?s leading cement manufacturing company. This customer is located in Karnataka, India. They require Nitrogen for purging of coal mill, bag filters and coal silos to control of fire due to spontaneous ignition of coal powder.
Customer has procured Nitrogen Inert Gas Plant from MVS of following specifications:

Technology : Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA)

Capacity : 150 Nm3/hr

Purity : 99% Nitrogen

This complete Nitrogen Inert Gas Plant was done on Turnkey basis including Air compressor, Big size Nitrogen storage tanks, purging nozzles and RTD sensors. In fact, with numerous projects under our belt, MVS Engineering also assists customers with engineering and design of placement of purging nozzles and instrumentation in their equipments.


In cement manufacturing process, pulverised coal is used as a fuel. It has some volatile contents and can catch fire easily in the presence of air (spontaneous ignition). Nitrogen is used as inert gas for purging of coal mill, bag filters and fine coal silos to aid in fire prevention and also for fire mitigation when required.

Before Nitrogen, fuel burning inert gas generators were used extensively in the cement industry. However, inert gas generators are a dirty process and also prone to very high maintenance. Nitrogen production on the other hand is a very clean process, as Nitrogen is produced directly from compressed air.

Over the last 30-years, we have supplied 50+ Nitrogen gas generators for most of the leading Cement manufacturers in India and Middle East. Increasingly, customers are becoming aware that active fire prevention with Nitrogen (by periodic purging) is a far better way than to do fire fighting and deal with fire only after combustion has taken place.
