What is Compressed Gas?

A liquid having a vapor pressure exceeding 40 psi at 100 deg. F (37.8 deg. C) as determined by ASTM D-323-72.

Compressed gasses are gasses that are stored under pressure in cylinders. The three major types of compressed gasses are liquefied gasses, non-liquefied gasses and dissolved gasses. The pressure of the gas in a cylinder is usually recorded as pounds per square inch gauge (psi) or kilo pascals.

There are four kinds of compressed gas available at our company, we have listed them below.

COMPRESSED GAS SAFETY AWARENESS

Compressed gases can be toxic, flammable, oxidizing, corrosive, or inert. In the event of a leak, inert gases can quickly displace air in a large area creating an oxygen-deficient atmosphere, toxic gases can create poison atmospheres, and flammable or reactive gases can result in fire and exploding cylinders. In addition, there are hazards from the pressure of the gas and the physical weight of the cylinder. A gas cylinder falling over can break containers and crush feet. The cylinder can itself become a missile if the cylinder valve is broken off.

Compressed gases can cause fires, explosions, oxygen deficient atmospheres, toxic gas exposures as well as the innate physical hazard associated with cylinders under high pressure. Special storage, use, handling and disposal procedures are necessary to ensure the safety of researchers using these chemicals and equipment.

Pressurized gases are used in so many ways that people take them for granted - to their detriment. Useful they may be, but they are dangerous if handled improperly. Ease the pressure with this program, which covers details on safe and proper handling.

WARNING
DO NOT purchase more or larger cylinders than necessary;
DO NOT store flammable gases next to an exit or near oxygen cylinders;
DO NOT use copper fittings or tubing on acetylene tanks;
DO NOT use Teflon tape on cylinder or tube fitting connections, which have metal-to-metal face seals or gasket seals;
DO NOT permit oil or grease to contact cylinders or their valves, especially cylinders containing oxidizing gases
