Handbook of Compressed Gases by (auth.)

By (auth.)

In the sector of compressed gases and similar apparatus, there's an increasing middle of crucial wisdom that folks dealing with and utilizing those fabrics can be acquainted with or may still comprehend the place to discover. the focal point ofthis booklet issues the homes and the authorised ability oftransportation, garage, and handlingofcompressed gases. This instruction manual is concurrently meant as an outline ofthe topic and a resource ofsupplementary info. it's also meant to function a consultant to perti­ nent federal regulatory necessities and released criteria of the Compressed gasoline organization and different standards-developing corporations. The organization advises readers that the CGA technical guides stay the respectable assertion ofpolicy on a specific topic. Reference is made all through this article to the varied technical courses released via the Compressed fuel organization. a few ofthese courses were included by way of reference into federal, country, provincial, and native rules. because the CGA courses are reviewed on a periodic foundation, every time the textofthis instruction manual conflicts with corresponding details within the CGA technical pamphlets, the main lately published fabric shall take precedence.

The transfer of compressed gases from one container to another should only be performed by the gas supplier or personnel who are trained 19 and qualified with both the proper transfill equipment and written operating procedures. They should be familiar with the necessary precautions to avoid the hazards of the product and with the procedures necessary to comply with government standards and regulations. Detailed written operating instructions, including equipment inspection and maintenance procedures, should be provided by the supplier of the transfill equipment and scrupulously followed.

All piping and equipment associated with flammable gas systems must be grounded and bonded. Nonsparking tools must be used when working with or on flammable compressed gas cylinders/systems. Safety Considerations for Compressed Gases and Cryogenic Liquids Further specific infonnation for handling flammable gases can be found in the individual gas monographs provided in Part II. eo~, nitrogen and xenon can displace oxygen In aIr and can cause rapid suffocation due to oxygen deficiency. Depletion of the nonnal oxygen content in air (approximately 21 percent) either by combustion or displacement with inert gas, is a serious potential hazard to personnel.

Only materials designed for cryogenic service should be used. Caution: Do not smoke or permit smoking or open flames in any area where cryogenic, flammable, or oxidizing liquids or gases are stored, handled, or used, or where they are loaded or unloaded. Special precautions for liquid oxygen Liquid oxygen containers, piping, and equipment must be properly cleaned for oxygen service and must be kept clean and free of grease, oil, or other hydrocarbon materials, which can combine with oxygen with explosive violence.
