The Nitrogen volumes shown are for pressurizing a pipe to the selected pressure only. Additional Nitrogen would be required for any additional purging or volume changes. See below for purging calculations. It is always recommended to have additional Nitrogen available to compensate for any leaks or un-foreseen requirements.

Purging does not require pressurization. The results shown are for the number of 'T' cylinders to provide the appropriate number of volume changes at very low flow with no pressurization. Note: NEVER enter a vessel that has been purged with Nitrogen, or any other gas unless you have tested that atmosphere for proper levels of oxygen.
