THEN WE WILL PRESENT SOME OF THE MAIN PRECAUTIONS IN HANDLING AND STORAGE OF ACETYLENE:

  1. Due to its wide range of flammability, Acetylene is a gas that must be treated with special care. For this reason, in the production, transport and handling stages, the gas must be avoided in free form, at a maximum working pressure recommended by one of the CGA standards, which is 14.5 psi.
  2. Acetylene cylinders must always be transported upright with their lid and stored in the same way to prevent acetone from spilling when the valve is opened.
  3. Use the cylinder only until pressure reads 29 psi (2 bar).
  4. Operate valves gently to avoid localized heating.
  5. The places where Acetylene is worked must have adequate ventilation.
  6. The cylinders should be stored at a prudent distance from the oxygen cylinders (at least 6 meters). In case of limited space, a fire wall is recommended between the storage places for both gases.
  7. If a cylinder is heated internally (detectable by peeling paint), the area must be evacuated and wet with water until cool (the water will stop evaporating at this point), wait two hours and re-wet.
