Best Practices for Your Gas Cylinder Refills

When it comes to gas cylinder refills, safety, and storage guidelines, it’s important to choose a reliable supply partner who is attentive to these details. We’ve compiled some things to keep in mind so you better understand this process and know what should be expected.

  1. As the customer, you reserve the right to refuse any gas cylinder the vendor attempts to deliver that you do not feel is up to your standards.
  2. Separate your storage areas for full and empty gas cylinders to prevent the accidental sale of an empty cylinder from your internal stock.
  3. Prevent customers from obtaining bottles themselves and rely on internal employees to handle the supply process to avoid any empty cylinders accidentally being sold.
  4. Gauge all gas cylinders prior to sale to maintain quality assurance for you and your customers.

How to Determine Gas Cylinder Contents

The pressure ratings on HP gas cylinders for Oxygen and Nitrogen tanks should be between 1,800 and 2,200 psi depending on the cylinder. Different manufacturers will have different ratings.

Acetylene Cylinders Pressure Ratings

The pressure ratings on acetylene cylinders should be between 180 and 250 psi but may vary depending on several factors. Due to variability, this is not the preferred method of determining contents.
