Acetylene Valves

  • Safe Handling of Acetylene Cylinders To Avoid Potential Hazards

    Acetylene is inherently a safe gas and is an invaluable commodity for the industry. Being a highly flexible gas, acetylene is used in many industrial processes. It is known to an irreplaceable for oxyfuel gas welding and cutting. It features high versatility and functionality with also being hazardous if not handled with care. However, the acetylene cylinders have a different design from most other gas cylinders and the gas reacts differently when exposed to fire.

    acetylene valves

    Safeguarded by acetylene cylinder valves, the acetylene cylinders consist of a steel shell comprising a porous mass which in combination with liquid acetone dissolves the gas. Decomposition of acetylene is triggered by heat, leaving the cylinder in an unstable, hazardous condition and can also lead to explosion.

    Due to the special potential for a delayed action rupture with acetylene cylinders, observing certain safety measures to minimize the risk and level of destruction.

    Tips to handle acetylene gas cylinders:

    • The alarm should be sounded and area evacuated in case of any event of an incident
    • Train the user appropriately before letting him use Oxyfuel gas equipment
    • Fit non-return acetylene valves on the torch
    • Check for any leaks prior to lighting up
    • Prefer to ignite the fuel gas equipment before introducing the oxygen stream with the nozzle pointing upwards
    • During transport, ensure that the vehicle is properly ventilated and there are appropriate restraints to save the gas filled cylinders from exploding
    • After being transported, the acetylene cylinders must be left to settle in an upright position so that the liquid acetone returns to its normal position in the porous mass
    • Always use a flashback arrestor while using acetylene cylinders
    • Never open the acetylene cylinder valves more than one and a half turns as it can be closed easily in case of an emergency

    All That You Should Know About Gas Cylinder Valves

    Cylinder Valves Cylinder Valves

    Gases constantly seek ways to escape from or enter into a gas supply system. Cylinder valves are devices that control the flow of the gases into or out of the cylinder. Pertaining to the escaping nature of gases, cylinder valves are gaining importance like never before.

    What are the types available?

    Packed Valves – These valves are mostly found on acetylene cylinders (B & MC) and corrosive products such as ammonia or chlorine. They typically have a specially designed wrench which has to be removed during shipping & storage.

    Pressure-seal Valves – This is a common valve found on most of the cylinders and can be operated using a hand-wheel at very high pressure levels.

    Diaphragm Valves – You can find these valves on cylinders which demand high levels of protection against leakage such as cylinders containing gas mixtures, high purity gases and rare gases such as krypton and xenon.

    Post-type Medical Valves – These pin-indexed valves are used in some medical gas products to ensure supply of the right gas to a particular apparatus.

    For your convenience and safety, JTC Valves maintains a well-managed inventory of cylinder valves manufactured in the USA by Sherwood and Rego, leading brands in valve manufacturing. All the valves you find here are certified by ASME & ISO 9001 certified.

    • Do not lubricate the valves or apply jointing compounds & tape
    • If the valves are frozen, use warm water to thaw it
    • Use no more than three quarters of a turn to open a valve
    • Never force the valve shut
    • Strictly use recommended hand-wheels or keys to open valves
