What are the main prerequisites that need to be confirmed before nitrogen purge?
- (1) Cut off the gas source, that is, shut off the valve or plug the blind plate, because a large amount of gas is constantly pouring in, and effective replacement will not be possible;
- (2) Cut off the fire source, that is, stop the fire first, close the burner valve, and put out all the burner flames in communication with the pipeline;
- (3) Open the relief valve to avoid holding pressure and causing equipment damage. During the purging process, attention must be paid to the pressure in the gas pipeline not to be higher than 0.03MPa;
- (4) Confirm that the ammonia gas pressure is higher than the gas pressure, otherwise the gas backflow may cause a major accident. During the purging process. Different purging sequence should be adopted according to different purging purposes. In the normal shutdown of the furnace for maintenance, the blowing should be started from the DN900 valve and the heat exchanger, and in the accident state, the blowing should be started from the combustion section.
Although nitrogen is a non-toxic gas, people will die from suffocation in an oxygen-deficient, high-concentration nitrogen environment. Therefore, in the process of blowing nitrogen, attention should be paid to the problems of environmental ventilation and nitrogen leakage.
