What are the safety requirements for the use of gas cylinders?

In industry, different types of equipment play different roles according to different USES, and the same is true for industrial gas cylinders. Then the safe use of gas cylinders requirements are also very strict, the next small make up for you to talk about the safety of industrial gas cylinder use requirements is what?

Safety use requirements for industrial cylinders

Industrial gas cylinders

Prevent the cylinder from being heated. The cylinders in use should not be exposed to the hot sun, should not be close to the fire source and high temperature area, and should not be less than 10 m away from the open fire. The cylinder shall not be directly injected with high-pressure steam; It is forbidden to thaw with hot water and bake with open fire. It is forbidden to heat the gas cylinder with heat source whose temperature exceeds 40℃.

Measures should be taken to prevent dumping when gas cylinders are put upright; When opening the valve, open it slowly to prevent high temperature caused by rapid pressure boost of accessories; For the cylinder of combustible gas, steel tools and other tools should not be used to hit the cylinder to prevent the generation of sparks; The valve of the oxygen cylinder and its accessories shall not be stained with grease. Do not operate the oxygen cylinder after the hands or gloves are stained with grease.

Gas cylinders should be used at the end of the surplus gas, mainly to prevent mixing with other gases or impurities caused by accidents. Cylinders used where backflow (backflow) is likely to occur must be equipped with devices to prevent backflow, such as check valves, check valves, buffer tanks, etc. Residual oil and gas in LPG cylinders shall be recovered by facilities with safety measures and shall not be disposed of by themselves.

Strengthen cylinder maintenance. The paint layer on the outer wall of the gas cylinder is not only anticorrosive, but also a distinguishing mark, which can prevent misuse and mixed packing. It is necessary to maintain the integrity of the paint surface and the clarity of the mark. The mixture of water in the cylinder will accelerate the corrosion of the inner wall of the cylinder. The cylinder must be dried before filling.

Units using gas cylinders shall not change the types of gas filled or change the color marks of gas cylinders without authorization. The cylinder inspection unit is responsible for refit the cylinder when an application for replacement is required. The unit in charge of refit determines whether the cylinder is suitable for the gas to be reloaded according to the cylinder manufacturing stamp-mark and safety condition. When refitting, the inside of the gas cylinder shall be thoroughly cleaned, inspected, staid and coated with inspection marks, and corresponding accessories shall be replaced, and the words, color rings and colors of the refitted gas shall be replaced.
