Nitrogen load balancer – Guide

Print this guide


A nitrogen load balancer uses the compressibility of the gas (Nitrogen) to compensate the load of a mobile element, in order to ease the handling and secure the closing. This solution is used, for example, to secure the manual opening of manholes on tanks, vessels or reactors. The balancer actively participates in the safety of the operator.
