Nitrogen (N2)

Nitrogen gas (chemical symbol N) is generally inert, nonmetallic, colorless, odorless and tasteless. Its atomic number is 7, and it has an atomic weight of 14.0067. Nitrogen has a density of 1.251 grams/liter at 0 C and a specific gravity of 0.96737, making it slightly lighter than air. At a temperature of -210.0 C (63K) and a ressure of 12.6 kilopascals, nitrogen reaches its triple point (the point an element can exist in gaseous, liquid and solid forms simultaneously).

Nitrogen is valued both as a gas for its inert properties and a liquid for cooling and freezing. Virtually any industry can benefit from its unique properties to improve yields, optimize performance, and make operations safer.


Nitrogen gas is useful in industrial and production settings due to its abundance and nonreactivity. In food production, nitrogen gas suppression systems can extinguish fires without fear of contamination. Iron, steel and electronic components, which are sensitive to oxygen or moisture, are produced in a nitrogen atmosphere.
