O2 cylinders are Green & stamped "For medical use"
Filled to 2000 PSI... can be a deadly missile
O2 aids combustion - No smoking or sparks
DO NOT HANDLE BY NECK ALONE
Hold with at least one arm around bottle
DO NOT STAND IT ON ITS BASE
Lay it down in a secure position, and keep in its bag
Flow Rate Indicator
Flow Rate Knob
Regulator index pins align with holes in O2 Cylinder neck
Inspect seal for dirt/debris
Do not cover w/ adhesive tape, petroleum jelly, etc.
Face opening away from yourself/bystanders
With wrench, "Crack" cylinder to clear away dirt/debris
Make sure flow rate knob reads “0”
Open cylinder and read pressure (PSI) (righty-tighty, lefty loosey)
Full is 2000; 500-1000 too low to keep in service
Sizes: D (350L), Super D (500L), and
Duration of Flow (gauge pressure – safe residual pressure) x cylinder constant/flow rate
safe residual = 200,
cylinder constant = .16 for D and 1.56 for M
=> 20 minutes for D at 15 L/min, 3.1hr for M
