      N2 is great for purging refrigeration systems, and coming out of a tank it will be dry (no H2O to speak of). At low temperatures it is relatively inert, but the way I think of it is that nitrides nitrates and all that stuff tend to happen at higher temperatures.

      For purging a gas tank or a refrigeration system it is the nuts, but I would only reluctantly use it on SS as a back purge.

      Thanks for the papers, they were good reads.
