Transporting Gas Cylinders
As anyone working with gas bottles and cylinders will know, transporting them can be a dangerous process. As well as the potential for leaks to occur during this process, without the correct handling equipment staff are at risk of sustaining injuries such as musculoskeletal disorders. It is therefore imperative to use professional-grade equipment that has been designed with this purpose in mind and ensure everyone knows how to use it. A perfect example is our single acetylene cylinder truck, which is rigorously tested and has a maximum load capacity of 150kg.
The movement of staff and dangerous substances in your workplace will need to be looked at as part of your risk assessment as it can be a major contributory factor for accidents. For storing and transporting Calor Gas type bottles, a gas cylinder carrier is a great choice. Featuring two levels of storage, this unit can carry up to 16 bottles at a time. Its ability to securely store its contents as well as move them means bottles can be transported in one go minimising journeys across your site. This can also be achieved by using a double-width trolley such as the oxygen/acetylene truck which transports a variety of cylinder types at the same time.
Top-quality gas bottle and cylinder trolleys are essential for use on busy job sites and in crowded workshops. Many of the trolleys available can be supplied with or without a rear wheel to give extra support and reduce the number of times a cylinder will need to be tilted. As with cylinder storage racks and stands, trolleys that are used to transport cylinders must include a restraining strap or chain to prevent them from falling accidentally. If cylinders become damaged whilst being moved the risk of leaks and explosions is greatly increased.
