    There are only six inert gases:
    helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon.

    Nitrogen is not inert.




    If nitrogen is not inert, then what does it react to?

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Same with CO2. It is also an inert gas. I think I'll start using xenon or neon to purge and leak test. Wouldn't that look interesting on the invoice?

    "Inert gas. A gas that does not react chemically with other substances. The inert gases are helium, neon, argon, xenon, and radon. Also occasionally used inaccurately to refer to nitrogen."

    Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide are both acceptable for use as a purge and leak test gas in processing a refrigeration system.
    However, neither are technically inert.
    I don't know what material either gas is reactive to, but there are only six truely inert gases.

    Google it up.

    Post back with what you find.

    Nitrogen is reacting with my St. Augustine grass right now!
    It loves the stuff.

    The 1 site has a mpeg of that is cool to watch.

    I was always told it was an inert gas, you taught me something.
