Guidelines for unloading of cylinders

01. Whenever possible unload directly on a raise platform, preferably by rolling over a coir
mattress.

02. Ensure bottom end of gas cylinder touch the mattress first and then roll it away. At no
point of time, the valve end should touch the floor.

03. Do not use a lifting magnet for unloading or loading any cylinder.

04. A fibre rope sling may used to lift one cylinder -- never more than one at a time,
provided it is adequately strong and correctly adjusted to prevent slipping. Use of chain
sling is unsafe as it is very likely to slip, over a cylinder.

05. If more than one cylinder has to be handled by a crane, a properly designed cradle
with proper suspension should be used.

Annexure-3

Care in handling compressed gas cylinders

1. Do not keep oily or greasy cotton waste or rags or clothes on a cylinder. Oil or grease
will ignite in the presence of oxygen and may even lead to explosion in case oxygen is
under pressure. Oxygen cylinders and regulator fittings should be kept away from all
sources of contamination such as oil drums, storage batteries, paint drums, underneath a
bench or machine-bed etc.

2. Ensure that grit or dirt of any sort or oil does not enter regulator assemblies.

3. Do not lubricate cylinder valves.

4. Use only the standard keys for opening the valves and make sure that these are free of
any oil or grease. Do not increase the leverage of keys or spanners and do not make any
attempt to get gas from cylinders with broken valve spindles. Any of these actions may
damage the cylinder valves and render the cylinder useless.

5. Do not use cylinders as rollers, work supports or jacks.

6. Lift a cylinder with a fibre rope sling. Cylinders must not be lifted with magnets.

7. Cylinders should not be loaded loosely in a vehicle failing which they will come in
violent contact and be subjected to jolting and damage during vehicle movement.

8. Never allow cylinders to come in contact with electrical apparatus or live wires.

9. Keep cylinders away from sparks, flames, or slags from welding or cutting operations.

10. Cylinders that have become damaged in transit or in the course of being used in the
plant or any other course should be handled in the same manner as leaking cylinders.

11. Special precautions against accidents:

- No person shall commit or attempt any act that will cause fire or explosion
- Every person storing, handling, transporting and the in charges shall at all times
comply with all the provisions of gas cylinders rules and also the licensing
c o n d i ti o n s .
-Preventing any person from committing any act as referred in (1) above.

12. Cylinder subjected to action of fire:

- Shall not be used unless proper examination and hydro/stretch test is done
