Default CO2 Cartidge

Is there a way to use a CO2 cartridge to purge head space in a carboy? Or a growler for that matter?

I use an empty whipped cream dispenser. Obviously I use CO2 cartridges intended for soda siphons rather than nitros-oxide cartridges. There are simpler ways but I've just utilized what was already at hand.

there are a few inventions out there that use them for keeping growlers under pressure, I assume you could just not seal it up before opening the valve

I use this. I don't work for them. I like it.
