Steam is purged into flares for somkeless operation. Steam also reduces the radiation from the flare flame. But can I purge nitrogen instead of steam. Cost of nitrogen is anytime higher than steam but lets say I have abundant of nitrogen and the availability of steam is limited then in this case can nitrogen be purged or not.

Tell me that u want to reduce radiation, or want to do something else,
well nitroget is used when the vessel is at a time with liquid and because of back pressure liquid can pressurise and go to the flare header, so at that time nitroget presssur blanket is given,
