Now ask me why
Hah ahaahahahah.:001_tongue:By not telling him how silly it is to think that using CO2 rather then nitrogen as a braze purge is?:laughing:
What a pain in the butt. I have to join imageshack to see what you are talking about:furious:Hah ahaahahahah.:001_tongue:
Bone dry CO2 is more costly if you just consider price.
The same size tank will give you much more CO2 than nitro. You buy nitro in cubic feet and CO2 by pounds.
Now we ain't talking your soda fountain CO2 here, we are talking pure and dry CO2 as is used in welding as a shielding gas.
It's inert. That's the short version
Here's a link that proves me right

Naw. Back before me and you were born contractors were using Dry CO2 instead of nitrogen to braze.I can't figure out how to get your dumba$$ link to work. Does it have to do with the cost differences between medical grade nitrogen and CO2?
This is a good to know alternative. Are CO2 tanks, valves and gauges compatible with nitrogen tanks, valves and gauges?Naw. Back before me and you were born contractors were using Dry CO2 instead of nitrogen to braze.
It some how fell out of favor (probably because of votech teachers who didn't know better). So everybody thought nitro was the holy grail and CO2 was for hacks.
I use the Dry CO2. I pay more but I get a lot more product so I can clean condensers and blow out drains and such and still have a ot left over as compared to the same size nitro tank..

LOL...good luck. No owner is gonna be sold that easy.
But just FYI you can order bone dry co2 thru Air Gas. Make sure you ask for bone dry co2 or they won't know what you are talking about.
Well hell, if somebody is gonna try to resurrect a much maligned but beneficial service practice it might as well be one here in MI.okay thats good info, thanks the boss is a pretty reasonable guy and i know he hates having to refill the nitro cylinders constantly and I agree with you that a tank of co2 can go much farther than same sized tank of nitro.:thumbsup:
