    Liquid Nitrogen Facts
    Liquid Nitrogen is non-toxic and odorless
    Liquid Nitrogen is generally more accessible in cities and urban areas.
    Liquid Nitrogen must always be stored and used according to safety guidelines.


    Is liquid nitrogen dangerous?
    Liquid nitrogen in itself is not dangerous when handled correctly and when all safety measures are in place. Liquid nitrogen is liquified nitrogen gas, which makes up 78% of the air around us.
    The danger of nitrogen for people arises when the oxygen level in a certain area is lower than 19% percent for extended periods of time, or when someone handles liquid nitrogen, nitrogen tanks or equipment without safety gear.

    Is there any chance that we could run out of liquid nitrogen?.
    There is an extremely low chance that liquid nitrogen would become unavailable.
    The food industry keeps fruits and vegetables in a controlled nitrogen atmosphere and the medical purposes of nitrogen ensure that there will also be a supply of liquid nitrogen for many years to come.


    Why are some gas suppliers not interested in supplying liquid nitrogen to potential customers that use cryotherapy machines running on liquid nitrogen?
    There are potential liabilities involved with supplying liquid nitrogen to customers for purposes of non-medical cryotherapy.
    Their reluctance to supply is mostly caused by a number of stories in the media of uncertified cryotherapy equipment or untrained staff causing injuries to clients.
    Some liquid nitrogen suppliers are running their own projects in the cryotherapy field.
