  • Patent number: 12031685
    Abstract: A method supply equipment for supplying a fluorine gas-containing gas which includes a sealing step of introducing a second fluorine gas-containing gas having a fluorine gas concentration in a range of ±10% of that of a first fluorine gas-containing gas into a portion between a container valve (3) and a pressure regulator (7) of a pipe (4) such that a pressure is lower than the gas pressure in a filled container (2). After the sealing step, a buffer tank (9) is brought into an opened state, and then the first fluorine gas-containing gas is supplied from the filled container (2) to the portion between the container valve (3) and the pressure regulator (7) of the pipe (4). Thereafter, the pressure regulator (7) is brought into an opened state, and then the first fluorine gas-containing gas is supplied to consumption equipment (20) while regulating a pressure by the pressure regulator (7).
