What is the difference between a pipe and a tube?
There are a number of differences between pipes and tubes. One of the key differences is their shape — tubes are available in a variety of shapes, including square, rectangular, and cylindrical, while pipes are always cylindrical or round. Pipes and tubes also have different sizing classifications — in fact, even if they look similar, their dimensions are actually very different. Another difference between pipes and tubes is that their rigidity differs quite considerably — pipes are generally resistant to bending, while tubes can be either rigid or flexible, depending on the type and application. Pipes and tubes also tend to have different uses and applications.
What is nitrogen purging?
Nitrogen purging is a process of air-cleansing, which is performed in order to make sure that no traces of harmful gases and other contaminants are left behind in a certain space. The process helps to restabilize a particular environment and prevent a range of issues commonly associated with dangerous toxins. In order to cleanse pipes and tubes, nitrogen is run through them to get rid of any unwanted components and to prepare them for exposure to a number of different chemicals and/or gases. The process is carried out in a class 100 clean-room environment.
