Store flammable and non-flammable Cylinders separately. They should be placed at least 20 feet apart or have a 5-foot barrier with a 1-hour fire rating.

Compressed Gas Cylinders:

  • The inert gas can rapidly replace oxygen in confined spaces, causing loss of consciousness or death to anyone in those areas.
  • Flammable gas can ignite and burn rapidly.
  • A compressed gas cylinder can become a missile if the valve is damaged.
  • Compressed gas can cause a pipe or vessel to explode.
  • When directed at a person, compressed gas or oxygen can embed particles in eye and skin.
  • Never take compressed gas cylinders into vessels or confined space.
  • Always remove torches and hoses from confined space when not in use.
  • Continuously and adequately ventilate confined space where inert welding gases are used.
  • Make dry chemical fire extinguishers readily available for fire emergencies.
  • No Smoking Rules must be enforced near places where compressed flammable gas is used and stored.
  • Protect cylinders and hoses from sparks and slag.
  • Never permit oil, grease or other lubricants to contact gas cylinders, valves, regulators, hoses or fittings.
  • Keep valve protection caps on cylinders valve at all times except when cylinders are connected to regulators.
  • Never move uncapped cylinders.
  • Move and secure cylinders in an upright position.
  • Never use compressed gas or oxygen for cleaning anything, including skin or cloth.
  • Store flammable and non-flammable Cylinders separately. They should be placed at least 20 feet apart or have a 5-foot barrier with a 1-hour fire rating.

  1. SIR
    ONE DOUBT IS THERE, DURING THE CUTTING TIME HOW MUCH PRESSURE MAINTAINED IN DA& OXYZEN CYLINDER PRESSURE AND OUT PUT PRESSURE
    PLEASE EXPLAIN ME

    • 1. A standard oxygen cylinder pressure between 154.6753 kg/cm2(2200 PSI) to 77.33765 kg/cm2 (1100 PSI)
      2. Acetylene cylinder pressure between 17.5767 Kg/cm2(250 PSI) to 13.3583 kg/cm2 (190 PSI)

      Working pressure
      Oxygen working pressure 20 PSI (1.40614 kg/cm2) to 25 PSI(1.75767kg/cm2)
      Acetylene working pressure 10PSI (0.70307 kg/cm2) (Do not exceed 15 psi)
