Doc. 26/21Permissible Charge / Filling Conditions for Acetylene Cylinders, Bundles, Battery Vehicles


This publication is intended to give the requirements for filling individual cylinders, bundles and battery vehicles containing different porous materials and different solvents. The publication is intended to supplement the existing standards by clarification of their safety philosophy and the method of implementation. It demonstrates the effects of the essential parameters, such as maximum acetylene content, necessary solvent content, acetylene/solvent ratio, acetylene filling tolerance, solvent filling tolerance, free volume in the cylinder, porosity of filler material.
