シリンダーに関するよくある質問

シリンダーはどのように保管すればよいですか? plus minus

シリンダーにはさまざまな形やサイズがあり、すべてのシリンダーは、正しく保管しないと怪我や損傷を引き起こす可能性があります。 さらに、特定の製品 (特に酸素とアセチレン) は、安全上の理由から隣り合わせに保管しないでください。

シリンダーを安全に保管するためのガイドラインをお読みください。 詳細なアドバイスと情報については、Air Productsにお問い合わせください。

Whenever you are carrying cylinders, please follow these simple but important guidelines:

  • Ensure the valve is closed
  • Disconnect any regulators and re-check the valve is closed
  • Always take care when lifting – cylinders are heavy

Please read our safety datasheet 'General Cylinder Handling'.

How do I transport cylinders safely? plus minus

Cylinders are very heavy and travel at the same speed as your vehicle. However, unlike your vehicle, they are not fitted with any brakes and unless they are adequately secured they can move forward under braking and cause severe damage.

There are some basic safety rules to follow:

  • No smoking
  • Check that cylinder valves are properly closed
  • If the cylinder is designed to have a cylinder valve cap, then one should be fitted
  • Ventilate your vehicle and keep windows open. Do not transport a cylinder in the car boot
  • Dismantle equipment such as regulators and hoses and torches
  • Ensure all cylinders are properly secured and prevented from moving during your journey
  • Go directly to your destination
  • Immediately unload when arriving at destination or if stopping for a longer time and store cylinders in a ventilated place

Since January 1, 2007, there is a requirement for the driver of any type of vehicle, not only for those above 3.5 tonnes, carrying dangerous goods in excess of the threshold limits to be in possession of a vocational training certificate, or ADR Licence as it is better known.

If you wish to benefit from the exemption of some of the requirements of the ADR regulations (such as the obligation to have orange plates, high visibility vests and wheel chocks), you need to understand the 1000 points rule and the limited quantity thresholds. The full ADR regulations only apply if your cylinder load exceeds this quantity threshold.

Please download our guide on ADR and the 1000 point rule.

シリンダーにグリースやオイルを塗るのを避ける必要があるのはなぜですか? plus minus

オイルとグリースは、酸素などの一部のガスと接触すると反応する可能性があるため、ガス業界では厳しく禁止されている物質です。 オイルやグリースに触れると、酸素やその他の酸化剤ガスが激しく反応し、火災や爆発を引き起こす可能性があります。 そのため、危険性の高い潜在的な事故を防ぐために、シリンダー/パックの潤滑は許可されていません。

Air Productsの従業員は、オイルやグリース、その他の物質と当社が生成するガスとの不適合性について訓練を受けています。

  • Close the cylinder valve
  • If the leak has stopped
    • Take cylinder out of service and clearly identify it
    • Contact us to arrange for the cylinder to be collected
  • If the cylinder is still leaking
    • Ventilate the room by opening doors and windows
    • Avoid ignition sources such as non-EX electrically operated fans
    • Evacuate the area within the vicinity of the cylinder
    • Contact the fire services and contact us

When dealing with cylinders in fires you should in all cases:

  • Raise the alarm and evacuate the area.
  • Contact the emergency services
  • Inform them of the number, type and location of the cylinders where possible.
  • If possible, cool the cylinders from a safe distance.
  • Advise Air Products on xxxxxxx

Do not approach cylinders that are involved in the fire until you have been advised by the emergency services that it is safe to do so.
