our methanol plant is in star-up phase and due to some problems we can not purchase nitrogen compressor in order to heat up our reforming section by circulating nitrogen, to protect the coils and .... do you think it is possible to do the same thing with natural gas instead of nitrogen.


thanks in advance

Would nitrogen pallets be possible to use? Then need a pressure regulator as well.


Some sample pictures from google below





I doubt natural gas will be feasible at all...

Hello, i know this could be too late but, you can use the natural gas compressor to compress nitrogen.
