What is Acetylene Cylinder Testing?
Acetylene cylinder testing is the process of carefully assessing presence of any defect of Cavity, Gap, Crack or Void of significant size in the Porous mass filled inside the cylinder shell. This process helps in removing such cylinder out of circulation, and reduces or possibly remove any chance of any accident.
How Acetylene Cylinder Testing is different from other gas cylinders Testing?
Acetylene Cylinders are completely different from any other gas cylinders due to availability of Porous Mass & Solvent inside any of the Acetylene Cylinders and that is the reason needs extra care and practical experience to carry out the Periodical inspection & testing.
Due to altogether different nature of Acetylene Cylinders because of the presence of Porous Mass & Solvent, such cylinders are never tested Hydraulically or Pneumatically during Periodical Inspection & testing anywhere in the world as otherwise the Porous Mass and Solvent will get damaged and will make the cylinder unserviceable.
Why Acetylene Cylinder Testing?
The main reason for Periodical Inspection & Testing of Acetylene Cylinders is to reduce as far as possible, any chance of Decomposition of Acetylene Gas inside the cylinder Body, which otherwise may result a cylinder to blastoff causing severe damage to the Human life along with damaging the property. By carefully assessing presence of any defect of Cavity, Gap, Crack or Void of significant size in the Porous mass filled inside the cylinder shell and thus removing such cylinder out of circulation, we can reduce or possibly remove any chance of any such accident. During the Inspection / Testing process, at Axcel we assess and inspect each and every aspect of the Cylinder Valve, Fusible Plugs, Cylinder shell, condition of Porous Mass, Condition of Solvent along with the normal ways of handling that could have possibly damaged the porous mass inside the cylinder body. With its large expertise and years of experience, Axcel Gases is competent enough to carry out such Periodical Inspection & Testing for the safety of the Human life and providing healthy and safe working environment to the work force.
Periodical Inspection & Testing Periodicity depends upon the type of Porous mass an Acetylene Cylinder is containing. Depending upon the porous mass, some Cylinders are Periodically Testes after an interval of 1 Year and others, after an interval of 2 years.
AXCEL Gases, as a manufacturer of Acetylene Gas is having more than 20 years experience for Safe handling, refilling and Periodical Inspection & testing of Acetylene Cylinders. Acetylene Cylinders needs to undergo Periodical Inspection & testing to avoid any possible chances of accident during filling, Transportation and use of Acetylene Gas.
