1. Cylinder pressure is an indicator volume. But it is not an indicator of volume if?
1. It is a partially gas and liquid state.
1. What are the types of valves that prevent a tank from rupture?
1. Fangible -ruptures at certain pressure
2. spring loaded - opens at set high pressure
3. fusible plug - melts at a specific temp
1. What is the most vulnerable part of the cylinder.
1. Valve stem.
1. what is PISS?
2. what does it do?
1. Pin Index Safety System
2. Prevents conection of wrong tanks.
1. What is DISS?
2. What is it Used for?
1. Diameter Index Safety System - Uses noninterchaingable threaded fittings to connect gas powered devices to station outlets.
2. prevents switching of pipeline supply. Each connector has a different diameter
1. What are Pipeline and Cylinder check valves?
1. Pipeline Check valve - prevents cylinder O2 from entering pipeline.
2. Cylinder Check valve - prevent Pipeline O2 from entering cylinder.
