  • How to Secure Medical Oxygen Gas Cylinders?

    The oxygen therapy is a critical but effective way of providing sufficient amount of oxygen to individuals undergoing surgical procedures or those under severe medical conditions. A major concern while using portable oxygen tanks is how to store the tanks safely because if not handled with care, the pressurized oxygen can lead to hazardous damages.

    Although the medical oxygen is stored in a pressurized manner in the oxygen tanks, they are exposed to different situations and settings. However, when proper care is taken in storing and using the tanks, we can minimize the occurrences of hazardous risks.

    Precautions to be taken around oxygen cylinders:

  • The tanks must be placed at a safe distance, approximately ten feet from fireplaces, candles, or any source of flame.
  • Electric appliances which result in sparks, such as the electric razors must be strictly out of the zone.
  • Any petroleum based products are better kept away from the person who is using the oxygen tank.
  • Ensure proper installation and functioning of smoke detectors.
  • Every room having the oxygen cylinders inside must be marked with a sign saying that no smoke or flames are allowed in the circumference.
  • If you are under home oxygen therapy, keep the fire department and other utility companies informed about the same.
  • Keep the tubing clean so that it does not mess with the furniture and is safe from tripping hazard.

  • During the manufacturing process of medical oxygen cylinders, they are cleaned and tested at every step thoroughly. However, after put to use, experts suggest to have the tanks retested every five years apart from following the general precautions to store them securely.

  • All-Purpose Compatible Thread Sealants for Industrial Needs

    Sealant tapes are adhesives that act as filler smoothening out surface irregularities or micro abrasions on threads. They possess lubricant qualities that allow the male threaded pipe to be deep turned deeper into female threaded fittings and prevent leakage.

    Pipe thread sealants are small accessories making a lot of difference in gas connections. But you need to choose a proper kind of plumbers tape for securing your gases and liquids.

    AN Threads provide a positive seal that connects rigid metal tubing and flexible hoses that carry fluid.

    National Pipe Thread is a US standard for tapered threads used on threaded fittings and pipes.

    Although there is no strict rule, we can categorize permanent or semi-permanent joints to identify appropriate applications:

    Permanent Joints – The joints that are installed during the rough-in phase of plumbing are permanent joints. Experts suggest tightening PIPE DOPES the threaded connections on the main & zone valves on the gas as well as water distribution systems.

    Semi-permanent Joints – These joints are a typically during the final trim-out phase such as shower heads, fixture angle stops, shower arms or any joint which would require general and regular maintenance. Here comes the use of pipe thread sealants/sealant tapes.

    What are PTFE tapes?

    The plumbing tapes underwent an evolution and double density versions became popular. However, the use of same ‘white’ color for two different thicknesses posed a challenge during inspecting job. Thus, the yellow Teflon tapes were introduced for such applications.

    Tape color Description
    Yellow double density often labeled as “gas tape”
    White should only be used on NPT threads up to 3/8 inch in diameter, can be single or double density
    Pink required on all joints 1/2″ or larger, triple density
    Green Oil Free PTFE tape, required for use on all lines carrying oxygen (i.e. – medical oxygen or welding oxygen lines)

    You had been using the sealant tapes for many years. But now, you have a deeper understanding of when to use a kind of pipe sealing tape. Check whether a specific sealant tape is compatible with oxygen or any material that you wish to pass through the thread surrounded by the tape. Oxygen compatible thread sealant tapes are apt for use with oxygen cylinders.
