Gas cylinders containing high-pressure hydrogen, natural gas, propane, butane, methane, carbon monoxide, gas mixes, and liquefied petroleum gas or acetylene dissolved under pressure are required to be stored upright in a safe, controlled environment to prevent tipping, or exposure to temperature extremes, motion and vibration, which could cause the tank to rupture, leak or explode.
A national team of experienced, local Safety Storage professionals can provide direct, on-site building construction recommendations. According to the company, this field support can assist plant or safety engineers, or others within the processing market in:
- Determining specific storage requirements.
- Recommending an appropriate building size and configuration.
- Selecting a suitable on-site location.
- Advising on optional safe handling accessories and equipment.
Safety Storage adds, moreover, that its 2- and 4-hour fire-rated buildings are built from non-combustible heavy-gage steel materials, and incorporate UL-classified fire-resistive gypsum wallboard that features bi-directional ratings. Explosion control venting, as well as other optional equipment and accessories, like a range of color choices, is also available.
