This video is of a scientific nature its purpose is to show and encourage to obey safety when handling gas cylinders.
Everything in this video is performed by professionals in compliance with safety regulations. Do not repeat – it can be dangerous.
Operation of gas cylinders. Cylinders with compressed, liquefied or dissolved gases require special safety measures for their transportation, storage and operation. These measures must be observed to avoid:
(a) gas leaks through loose connections and the formation of explosive mixtures with air, which is dangerous in the presence of a spark, for example, when a cylinder hits a solid object;
b) thermal effects on the cylinder, which causes an increase in the gas pressure in it;
C) mechanical shocks that may damage the vessel walls.
It is necessary to transport cylinders with gas with the put on safety caps, and cylinders with combustible gases – with caps and plugs. During transportation of cylinders in cars, trucks and other means of transportation spring in a horizontal position between the cylinders is installed a strip of wooden bars carved with jacks or cylinders wear rubber ring with a minimum thickness of 25 mm all the cylinders are contained valves in one direction. When transporting cylinders in an upright position in special containers or without them, gaskets between the cylinders and barriers against possible fall shall be installed.
During loading and unloading to drop the tanks and hitting them on hard objects is not permitted.
Joint storage of cylinders with oxygen and combustible gases as it is connected with possibility of formation of explosive mixes is not allowed
