Why Autoclave uses Nitrogen for Pressurized

Why Autoclave uses Nitrogen for Pressurized ?   
Autoclaves can be pressurized with air or nitrogen, depending on customer requirements. Industry standard seems to be that air is OK up to temperatures of around 120 deg C. Above this temperature, nitrogen is usually used to assist heat transfer and mitigate the potential for fire. Fires are not common, but they can cause a lot of damage to the autoclave itself. Losses could include a full load of parts and production down time while repairs are made. Fires can be caused by localized frictional heating from a bag leak and resin system exotherm. At higher pressures, more oxygen is available to feed the fire. Since the entire interior of the pressure vessel must be removed to inspect and repair an autoclave after a fire, nitrogen charging should be considered
