• TANK EXPLOSION
WARNINGS
Explosive
failure
of the tank, its components,
or attachements
to it, could result in
serious
injury
to self or others,
or property
damage
from the following
conditions:
HAZARD
EXPLOSION OF
TANKS
WHAT COULD
HAPPEN
• Modifications to its design or construction
could weaken tank.
• Substitution
of unauthorized
non-standard
components
could weaken tank or cause
component
failure.
• Damage to the tank or its components
could
weaken the tank.
• Improper cleaning or maintenance
could
block air passages
to the safety valve,
gauge or outlet, allowing pressure
to rise
to dangerous
levels, and preventing
the
lowering of tank pressure.
• Tampering
with the safety valve could allow
tank pressure to rise to dangerous
levels.
• Removal of the lid while the tank is under
pressure could result in the lid being propelled
violently from the tank.
• Use of reactive chemicals
could attack the
the lid gasket and safety valve seal allowing
tank pressure to rise to dangerous
levels.
• Halogenated
hydrocarbon
solvents-
for
example:
1,1,1 - trichloroethane
and
methylene chloride- can chemically
react with
aluminum. If this reaction occurs within an
enclosed container such as this pressure feed
tank, the tank may explode.
• Overtightening
clamps causing them to
weaken and fail could result in the lid being
propelled violently from the tank.
HOW TO PREVENT
IT
Assemble
tank components
in
accordance
with service instructions.
Do
not drill into tank, or weld attachments,
or alterits design in any manner.
• Use only those components
furnished
with your tank, assembled in accordance
with instructions
in the service literature.
• Never attempt to repair a damaged
tank.
Replace
it with a new one.
Following each use, clean and dry tank
and lid in accordance
with maintenance
instructions.
Make sure ports to safety
valve, gauge and outlet are free of hard-
ened paint or other materials which could
prevent free movement
of air.
Never attempt to adjust safety valve to
change its pressure setting, or defeat its
function in any way. Operate the valve
before each use to assure that it func-
tions properly.
Before releasing
clamp force to remove
the lid, shut off the supply of tank inlet air
and turn the regulator knob counterclock-
wise to relieve tank pressure.
Check by
pulling the safety valve ring.
• Do not use reactive chemicals
in your
tank such as acids, caustic solutions,
or halogenated
hydrocarbon
solvents.
• Do not use wrenches,
pliers, or other
tools to tighten tank clamps.
Use only
the torque you can apply with your hands.
If the lid gasket leaks, relieve tank pres-
sure and clean or replace the gasket.
