Having an empty oxygen cylinder in your home can be quite inconvenient and dangerous if you do not know what to do. This article will teach you how to properly dispose of an empty oxygen cylinder.

Identifying an empty oxygen cylinder

Identifying an empty Oxygen cylinder can be a little tricky. While you may be able to use your full cylinder like co2 cylinder, you can't store it next to an empty one. You also need to take special precautions when handling and transporting flammable or irritating gases.

The best way to identify an empty oxygen cylinder is to check its pressure gauge. When you open the valve, the pressure gauge will decrease and you will know if you need to refill it or not. You can then secure the cylinder with a chain and a safety strap. Never store a cylinder in a public hallway or in a place where it could become tampered with.

While you're at it, you should be sure to check the identification markers on your cylinders. You'll find these on the side and on the top of the cylinder. These will tell you things like the manufacturer's name, the date of manufacture, the DOT (dot-on-the-tin) and a couple other things.

It is also a good idea to check the valves on the cylinders. Most machines have check valves located in the cylinder mounting block. If you're not sure whether your machine has one or not, you can call 911 to ask.

While you're at it, be sure to mark the cylinders you are not using with the DOT. This will help you remember which cylinder is the empty one.
