2 Kinds of co2 ??

I filled my co2 tank today and the guy at the Air Supply store told me that there is two kinds of co2....food grade and industrial grade.
I refilled with food grade that you would use for beer and pop, but what is industrial grade? Oh yes he was very helpful with his disscription of the two, the food grade one is on that shelf and industrial is on the other!

Food grade and industrial grade co2 are the same co2 its the tank that is different. The food grade tanks are lined with glass so if there is a back flow into an empty tank it doesn't cause rust which can contaminate soda or beer with rust. If the supplier charged you more to put food grade in your tank than he ripped you off

No, he did not charge more for the tank. I was thinking maybe there was maybe some nitrogen in the tank of the food grade, but then why would they call it co2 and not co2n
