Inspecting gas cylinders before filling them is crucial for ensuring safety and preventing accidents. Here are some precautions and steps to follow before filling gas cylinders:
- Visual Inspection: Perform a thorough visual inspection of the gas cylinder. Look for any visible signs of damage, corrosion, or defects on the cylinder’s exterior. This includes dents, gouges, rust, or paint damage.
- Valve Inspection: Check the cylinder valve for damage or leaks. Make sure the valve is in good working condition and not stuck or difficult to turn. Ensure that the valve outlet is free of debris or foreign material.
