501 how do you know its anhydrous ammonia? Could be one of the hundreds of other variants of ammonia?

Educated guess : Anhydrous ammonia, the term for commerical-use ammonia, is widely used in industrial refrigeration techniques due to its high energy efficiency and low cost.

OSHA considers anhydrous ammonia to be “immediately dangerous to life and health” at a concentration of 300 parts per million (ppm), or 0.03%. Ammonia is corrosive to the skin, eyes, and lungs, and even a brief exposure can result in severe chemical burns. Extreme cases can even kill the victim. Fun Facts :)
