It's a good question, although I don't think straight co2 would be a good storage/packaging gas, comparing to storage of various products in the food industry.I'm talking about this situation. I don't see why CO2 would be any more reactive but N. Perhaps I'm missing something though if all the pros are using N...
Carbon dioxide is produced naturally during the fermentation. It's solubility in water at
atmospheric pressure and 20°C is about 1.69g/L. The gas is heavier than air. Its density at 0°C is
1.52 as compared to the density of air which is about 1.0.
unfortunately nitrogen is only a good investment for big growers. too big an outlay for small timers
I dont think so,nitrogens not that pricey after you pay the deposit or buy the first bottle,i have an account at airgas and i think for the 50 size bottles(which is ALOT)i pay like 30-35 bucks,when their empty you just dump them off and they give you a full one,its cheap enough i probably have 5 bottles in my garage now so i never run out,BTW what i use it for has nothing to do with MJ but i might try it now,lol.I dont think small growers really need it unless there sitting on weight for awhile which little guys usually dont do but it can mean alot for an outdoor guy who doesnt want to sell his product for 1/2 price when the markets flooded or for someone who wants to store longer term.
Infocus,you are correct that nitrogen is heavier than air and will displace oxygen,so like caps link shows it will fill a bucket up and when the oxys gone the flame goes out indicating no more oxygen.I remember when i was a kid our travel trailer actually used butane(they use propane now)for the stove, light and heater and sometimes you wouldnt get the valve turned off all the way and my mom would use a broom to sweep the butane out the door before my old man could come in and spark up a kool and blow us all the fuck up!
Any suggestions on a set up for buying /using a Nitrogen Sealer for nug storage ?
hear alot about it , searched here and the net in general looking to purchase a Nitrogen Sealer of some sort , and not coming up with anything under the few thousand dollar range .. and even in that price range Id have no idea what a good setup would be ..
Using Boveda 62% packs now , and they kick ass ! But this is the next step
Thanks , DynO
Has no one tried using oxygen absorbers in long term nug storage?
