Inert gas production

Your tank holds your source of income – and a potential source of danger. Alfa Laval Smit systems for inert gas production ensure a stable, safe tank environment. Our inert gas generator systems play a crucial role in safe and reliable marine operations for the past 50 years.

Inert gas production

Ensure safety with vessel-specific solutions

  • Over 50 years of experience with marine inert gas production systems
  • Unique ultramizing system atomizes fuel oil for soot-free inert gas, even at partial loads
  • Inert gas generator continuously secures the right fuel-to-air ratio, whatever the required capacity
  • Highest material and component quality
  • In-house and onsite operator training
We produce inert gas for volatile cargo through a number of methods adapted to the combustion safety requirements of different vessels. Nearly all of them feature the unique Ultramizing system which atomizes fuel oil for soot-free inert gas, even at partial loads. The Smit LNG system for LNG carriers is the flagship of our Inert Gas Systems portfolio, which safely and reliably handles boil-off on vessels with dual-fuel or low-speed diesel engines.

A Smit inert gas system for your vessel type

Mitigate the risks associated with flammable cargo with Alfa Laval Smit solutions. They use a range of methods to produce inert gas and inject it into the tank, adapting to the combustion safety requirements of each vessel. This protects your cargo, crew, vessel – and lessens impact on the environment.
