We all know the safety requirements to be taken while handling compressed gas cylinders.
The compressed gas cylinders which have pressure up to 200 kg/sqcm have a huge potential energy. In can act as a bomb if not mis-handled.
The precautions include
1. Store fuel gases and other gases separate.
2. Ensure safety cap is provided
3. Identify the gas cylinder with proper labels and color
4. The shifting is to be done on trolleys.
5. These are to always stored in vertical position
We have mitigated one such case in Nasik.
I shall try to upload video with the permission of the owner of the company.
Thanks & Regards,
From India, Nasik
