Safety Tips for Oxygen & Gas Tanks


After years of using a small tank of camping gas and an old torch
for soldering, I am finally getting gas and oxygen tanks and a new
torch. Does anyone have any safety tips for the tanks, etc.? I’m
just nervous about blowing something (or someone) up as I have my
workspace in a small corner of my home (wouldn’t want to end up
homeless or annoy the neighbors!) Thanks for any advice.

Kind regards,
M. Kim

There will be many tips for you, no doubt. I will give the the
first, maybe, but the most important. When you get your regulators,
you will see, somewhere, especially on the oxygen, “USE NO OIL” Take
that to heart - oil in the presence of high pressure pure O2 can and
will explode - Use No Oil…
