Acetylene Plants

  • Filling Manifold

    This consists of a battery of 60 filling connections to connect to the gas cylinders. Non- return valves are provided in various sections of the pipeline to the filling manifold. These non- return valves are extremely important for the safe operation of the plant and should be periodically cleaned to remove rust and scales, (iron cause fire). The cylinder filling pig tails (flexible hose pipes) should also be periodically cleaned to ensure that they; do not burst during filling operation, (if they do burst, a fire would ensure due to sudden discharge of Acetylene).
