HANDLING AND STORAGE

NORMAL HANDLING:
(Always wear recommended personal protective equipment.)
Avoid breathing vapors and liquid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. Do not puncture or drop cylinders, expose them to
open flame or excessive heat. Use authorized cylinders only. Follow standard safety precautions for handling and use of
compressed gas cylinders.
alltemp® should not be mixed with air above atmospheric pressure for leak testing or any other purpose.

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS:
Store in a cool, well-ventilated area of low fire risk and out of direct sunlight. Protect cylinder and its fittings from physical
damage. Storage in subsurface locations should be avoided. Close valve tightly after use and when empty.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS:
Provide local ventilation at filling zones and areas where leakage is probable. Mechanical (general) ventilation may be
adequate for other operating and storage areas.
