Industrial gas includes a large number of products consisting of elements, compounds (molecular) or mixtures that are in the form of gas at the temperature and pressure specified, even though they can be stored as fluid or solids. The condition of the material gas does not have the form or volume specified. The properties of gas vary according to the pressure and temperature they are headed.
Oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide is the most common industrial gas, while Argon, Xenon, Krypton and Neon are called noble gases. Many industries store gases in liquid form for ease of transportation and storage as well. The gases are disbursed when high pressure is applied.
Various kinds of containers are used to store and transport industrial gas. Industrial gas cylinders are special containers of applications produced by cylindrical tank manufacturers. Gas in compressed form is used in laboratories, schools, and many industries. The gas in the industrial cylinder is at very high pressure. Gas must be treated with caution and industrial cylinder tanks must match the gas used.
Cylinder gas safety guidelines:
Learn your gas to reduce the dangers associated with gas handling
Label identification with classification of harmful goods
Refrigeration and color identification
Construction and design:
Industrial gas tanks and industrial gas cylinders must be built according to applicable standards that determine the material to be used, the method of manufacturing, pressure test, maximum filled pressure and periodic inspection methods.
Cylinder gas size
Single sistinder – a variety of single high pressure cylinders available depending on the volume and pressure needed. The cylinder size is symbolized by the letter code. Content in the cylinder is measured in cubic meters or kg at standard pressure and temperature.
This cylinder pack – cylinder manifold is interconnected and usually used where most gas is needed.
Danger of Industrial / Cylinder Gas Tanks
Compressed gas is very dangerous if not handle correctly
The cylinder can break when the gas is at high pressure
Heating can cause safety devices to damage and release content
When liquid gas is released, evaporates to create a large number of gases
Flammable gas. Small leak can cause an explosion
Inert gas leak causes shortness of breath
Corrosive and toxic gas is harmful to health
Safety in handling gas is very dependent on the type of cylinder used. It is recommended to use industrial gas cylinders with CGA 580 valves inserted – 22 cu ft ‘as produced under strict conditions and tested security. This aluminum industrial cylinder dimension is 5.25 inches x 16.3 inches. The industrial gas cylinder is equipped with 1,125 “UNFS inlet thread with CGA 580 valve inserted with brushed bodies and unpainted domes. Color and sensitive heat layers are also available. Catalina is a manufacturer of industrial gas cylinders available online.
