As per ANSI Z49.1:2005 Oxygen Gas Cylinder in Storage Shall be kept with a safe distance of 6.1meters from combustable gas cylinders.
As per Gas Cylinder Rules 2004, Chapter 2, General Provisions, Section 21:Storage of cylinders: Cylinders containing flammable gases and toxic gases shall be kept separated from each other and from cylinders containing other types of gases by an adequate distance or by a suitable partition wall.
Gas Cylinder Rules 2004 is not specifying how much distance and both the above is related to storage of gas cylinders only.
No my question is:
1. What should be the safe distance between fuel & Oxygen while storage as per statues in India? Which is the latest applicable Act/Rule in India regarding the same?
2. What should be the safe distance while transporting fuel & Oxygen as per statues in India? Transporting in same trolley is safe or not?
3. What should be the safe distance between fuel & Oxygen while in use as per statues in India?
Request to put some lights into the topic. If you are not having updates of Indian Statues, please let me know the same as per any other legalization.
