reports that a new publication, CGA G-1.9, Recommended Practices for Maintaining the Proper Solvent Level in Acetylene Cylinders, has recently been released by the Compressed Gas Association (CGA).

The document discusses optimal ways to maintain the proper solvent level in acetylene cylinders. The publication includes tables that allow workers to maintain the appropriate level of solvent in a cylinder without requiring them to make calculations every time a cylinder is tested.

This development is beneficial to anyone responsible for filling acetylene cylinders. If you work with these cylinders, you should make sure that you're also properly storing and transporting them.
