Safety Management Of Cylinders
Jun 05, 2017

Cylinders hold high pressure oxygen, gas, liquefied petroleum gas and other steel bottles. Safe storage and transport of cylinders Cylinders generally contain permanent gas, liquefied gas or mixed gas. (Including factories, laboratories, hospitals, schools, CDC, electronic room, clean room, Steel Cylinders industrial institutions, etc.), bottled gas and gas cylinders distribution units, gas cylinders, Cylinder management need to improve, should strengthen the transport, storage gas cylinders safety management

The principle of safe storage of cylinders

1. Should be placed in a special warehouse storage, to comply with the national dangerous goods storage regulations, cylinder warehouse should meet the "building design fire safety regulations," the relevant provisions must be equipped with professional knowledge of the technical staff, Steel Cylinders the warehouse and places should be set up management, with reliable Personal safety protection products, and set the "dangerous", "no fireworks" logo.

2. There should be no ditch, underground passage, no underground fire, and other heat sources, the warehouse should be ventilated, dry, to avoid direct sunlight; storage warehouses and storage should be a good ventilation, cooling and other facilities, no trench, illegal channels and bottom ventilation holes, and It is strictly forbidden to pass any pipelines and avoid direct sunlight and avoid radioactive radiation sources. Steel Cylinders Should ensure that the cylinder bottle dry. Summer should prevent exposure.

3. A cylinder containing a polymerization reaction or a decomposition reaction gas must control the maximum temperature in the warehouse according to the nature of the gas, prescribe the shelf life, and avoid the radiation source.

4. Empty bottles and real bottles should be placed separately, Steel Cylinders and there are obvious signs, toxic gas cylinders and bottles of gas in contact with each other can cause combustion, explosion, produce toxic cylinders, should be sub-room storage, and in the vicinity of the installation of anti-virus equipment or fire fighting equipment. Must be isolated from explosives, oxidants, flammable materials, spontaneous combustion products, corrosive items.

5. Cylinders should be placed neatly, should be placed upright, properly fixed, and should be to prevent dumping measures. Innovative new full plastic cylinder fixed plate and cylinder holder is a perfect solution to the cylinder storage and cylinder fixing problems, improve safety and avoid the chaos of the cylinder placed in line with the requirements of the US Occupational Health Administration OSHA 29 CFR.1910, Safety greatly improved. Innovative cylinder fixed plate and cylinder fixed frame of the plastic structure, Steel Cylinders not as heavy as steel products, rust and dust, especially for clean room, clean room, operating room, electronic room, such as clean requirements occasion

Principle of use of cylinders

(1) high-pressure cylinders must be classified sub-custody, standing upright to be secure; cylinder to stay away from heat, to avoid exposure and strong vibration; general laboratory storage cylinder can not exceed two bottles.

A. At the shoulder of the cylinder, Steel Cylinders mark the following with steel stamps

Manufacturer Manufacturing Date Cylinder Model Working Pressure Pneumatic Test Pressure

Pneumatic test date and next delivery date Gas volume Cylinder weight

B In order to avoid confusion when using a variety of cylinders, often the cylinder painted on different colors, specify the bottle name of the gas.

(2) high pressure cylinders on the use of the reducer to be classified, the installation of the screw to tighten, to prevent leakage; open and close the pressure regulator and switch valve, the action must be slow; use should first turn on the valve, After the open pressure reducer; run out, first turn off the valve, Steel Cylinders let the exhaust gas, then off the pressure reducer. Do not care about the pressure regulator, not off the valve.

(3) When using a high-pressure cylinder, the operator should stand at a position perpendicular to the cylinder interface. Operation is strictly prohibited to beat the impact, and often check for leaks, should pay attention to pressure gauge readings.

(4) oxygen cylinders or hydrogen cylinders, etc., should be equipped with special tools, and is strictly prohibited with oil contact. The operator can not wear a variety of grease or easy to produce electrostatic clothing glove operation, so as not to cause burning or explosion.

(5) flammable gas and combustion gas cylinders, and the distance from the fire should be greater than ten meters (when it is difficult to achieve, can take isolation and other measures).

(6) after the cylinder, should be required to stay more than 0.05MPa residual pressure. Flammable gas should be left 0.2MPa ~ 0.3MPa (about 2kg / cm2 ~ 3kg / cm2 gauge pressure) H2 should be retained 2MPa, to prevent re-inflated when the danger, can not be exhausted.

(7) Various cylinders must be regularly checked. Filling the general gas cylinders three times a test; such as the use of serious corrosion or serious damage, should be tested in advance.
