Protection under N2 filled vessel during transport

Protection under N2 filled vessel during transport

Would appreciate to know why Nitrogen is used during the transport of carbon steel vessels. In addition please, I would appreciate to know some insight into what sort of provisions are to be in place to ensure the conservation of the protection under nitrogen and the coatings during the transport and handling of carbon steel vessels.

Furthermore, how can one avoid pressure loss in these vessels?

In conclusion, CO2 is instead used for the transport of Stainless steel vessels, why not nitrogen?

Would ever appreciate the resourcefulness of members of this community that have been helpful with their responses and thanks in anticipation.
