Cylinder Valve – Protection and Prevention of Spillage

By Quinn White Subscribe to RSS | May 17th 2012 | Views:

There are numerous industrial products that require unique and peculiar modes of transportation and storage, with each product having its own properties and functionalities. The need for different types of industrial products and a whole range of packaging and protective materials has arisen chiefly on account of the differences in the products that they are supposed to pack, protect and store, and also based on the various applications that the products may be subject to. There are some special needs associated with the cylinder valve, catered to by means of specially formulated materials to ensure that the parts of the cylinder valve are protected, as well as to prevent the cylinders from over filling. The application and the properties of the material used for protection of the cylinder valve differ based on what the underlying intention and purpose is, as in the case of propane cylinders, which have their own set of needs and requirements to fulfil.

The propane cylinder is meant for safe storage and transportation of the liquid petroleum gas, which is essentially a mixture of propane and butane. Propane gas is generally stored and transported in cylinders made of steel, and there is a need for cylinder valves that are designed to ensure that the gas is safely stored in place and there are no leakages during transportation or damages to the cylinder valve. The products used for such purposes tend to be made of either Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) or High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). The overfill prevention device cylinder valve plug is generally made of HDPE, whose purpose is to protect cylinder threads from undergoing damages or from being exposed to external contaminants during shipping or when in use. These are easy to apply and are reliable in attaining their purposes.

There are other devices that are made with similar purposes as the one mentioned, as in the case of overfill prevention device cylinder valve caps, where the product has a one-piece cap with a retaining strap attached to the valve, made to prevent damages to the valve or any scope for contamination. There are specific designs made with the intention of making the cylinder valve tamper resistant as well. There are other industrial products available, equipped with knobs and locks along with rubber gasket, adding to the range of products available, geared to the protection of the cylinder valve as well as prevention of damage and contamination.
