Safety Tips For Gas Welding

  1. 1. Safety Tips for Gas Welding Storage and Handling • After finishing gas welding, Always keep gas and oxygen cylinders with minimum of 20 feet distance between them. Or, divide them with a right firewall. • As the cylinders can caught fire easily, keep the flammable and combustible materials away from cylinders. • Store cylinders away from physical injure, heat, and tampering. • Always maintain cylinders in an upright position. If possible, Chain them steadily to keep them from falling over. • Ensure that the cylinder valves has been closed or not before moving. • Defending caps or regulators should be kept in place. • Roll cylinders on bottom edges to move it from one place to another place. Do not pull it. • Try to reduce cylinder movement as much as possible, while transporting it. General Gas Welding Safety Tips • To lift up gas cylinders, use the equipments that are designed for lifting it. Do not use any other tools for lifting it. • Check torches and clean only with the suitable tools. • Blow-back protection torches must be used while welding. • Always keep an eye on the equipments and ensure any leakages at all connections. This can be done by using an approved leak-test solution. • Inspect hoses for leaks and worn places. • Replace bad hoses at regular intervals. • Keep fire extinguishers easily reachable places, at the welding site. • Keep away hoses and cylinders from sparks, flames, and hot metal as the sparks create holes on it. • To fire the flame in welder, always use a flint lighter. • Stand to the side when opening cylinder valves. • Use two-stage regulators whenever feasible. • When using a single-stage regulator, open cylinder valves very slowly. This keeps rapid high pressures from exploding the regulators. • When using a single-stage regulator, only open the acetylene cylinder valve 1/4 to 3/4 turn. • Leave the wrench in place. By doing so, you can close the cylinder quickly in case of any emergency. • Open and light acetylene first. Then open and adjust oxygen to a neutral flame. • When shutting off the torch, first you have to close the acetylene torch valve. You might hear a pop as the oxygen blows out the flame, but the flame will not burn up the acetylene line. • When you done:
