What is liquid nitrogen used for?

Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) is used primarily for rapid cooling and freezing. The liquid exists at effective temperatures below −196 °C. This has significant applications in medical procedures, sample preservation and cryo transport.

Liquid nitrogen is a compact and readily transported source of dry nitrogen gas, as it doesn’t require pressurization. Its ability as to maintain temperatures far below the freezing point of water makes it extremely useful in a wide range of applications. Liquid nitrogen is primarily used as a coolant in industries like pharmaceuticals, oil, food and chemistry but also in very advanced techniques like cryopreservation.

Safety Instructions for Liquid Nitrogen

Protection

Because of its extremely low temperature, careless handling of liquid nitrogen and any objects cooled by it may result in cold burns. Even a small splash can harm you even if it doesn’t show or feel anything right away. Therefor safety clothing, gloves and protection goggles should always be used while handling liquid nitrogen. Ingestion of Liquid Nitrogen can cause severe internal damage, due to freezing of the tissues which come in contact with it and to the volume of gaseous nitrogen evolved as the liquid is warmed by body heat.

Ventilation

As Liquid nitrogen evaporates it reduces the oxygen concentration in the air and can act as an asphyxiant, especially in confined spaces. Nitrogen is odorless, colorless, and tasteless and may produce asphyxia without any sensation or prior warning.

Uses for Liquid Nitrogen

Explosive

Because the liquid-to-gas expansion ratio of nitrogen is 1:694 at 20°C, a tremendous amount of force can be generated if liquid nitrogen is vaporized in an enclosed space.

Transport

Transport of liquid nitrogen should only be done when the cargo space is separated from the cab. Special type of containers to be used for liquid nitrogen carriage like dry shipper or LN container. Make sure the tank is placed securely and firm, avoiding any tilting or spillage.
