Compressed gas cil safety

  1. 1. For the user of this presentation:This presentation has animation that can only be seen when you select“View Show” from the “Slide Show” menu item.Author uses this presentation for Compressed Gas Cylinder TrainingDuring the “what is wrong with this picture” segment. Trainees haverated this segment as the best part of the training.If you have other photos you care to submit, send them directly with a note as to what is wrong in the photo.I will continue adding to this presentation and posting to theVermont SIRI.Thanks,Rafael Coll (630) 840-8518 Compressed Gas

  37. 37. An Ironworker crew was modifying a temporary structural steel bridgeusing an Oxygen/Acetylene torch setup on a cart, a portable welder,and a grinder. Apparently the Acetylene hose developed a leak andignited during the grinding operation ( Monday June 18, 2001 ) Compressed Gas
  38. 38. The torch setup was not equipped with a “flashback” arrestorcheck valve and the fire traveled through the hose into thecompressed cylinder. All Oxygen/Acetylene setups must have a “Flashback” arrestor check valve at the regulators, NOT the torch head, to prevent this type of occurrence. This little device would have prevented this fire.
