Federal Law prohibits persons, other than cylinder manufacturers, from repairing acetylene cylinders. Disposal of unserviceable cylinders should only be attempted by experienced personnel.
In all cases of acetylene cylinder fires, the area should be evacuated as quickly as possible.
Always store and use acetylene cylinders in an upright position to prevent loss of acetone which reduces the cylinder's ability to hold dissolved acetylene.
Remove leaking acetylene cylinders to an open area and tag them indicating the danger. Never attempt to stop a fuse plug leak. Notify your supplier immediately.
If an acetylene cylinder receives a sharp or deep dent, the metal is gouged, or any other mechanical defect, circle the defect with a marking pen to alert the supplier of the defect.
