An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Compressed Air Program


All compressed air cylinders and compressor equipment must be used in a manner that will not endanger personnel or property in routine shop use or experimental operations. Hazards associated with handling and use of flammable and/or high-pressure gases include the following:

Injuries caused by flying objects accelerated by an explosion or pressure release;

Secondary accidents such as falls or electrical shocks;

Relief Valves Required

All systems, system components, and piping subject to over-pressures must be equipped with relief devices.


Oxygen supports combustion but is itself nonflammable. Oxygen lowers the ignition point (in air) of flammable substances and causes them to burn more vigorously. Materials such as oil and grease burn with nearly explosive violence in oxygen, even in minute quantities. Therefore, oxygen cylinders must not be handled with greasy or oily hands or gloves and must not be stored near highly combustible materials such as oil, grease, or reserve acetylene.

Oxygen must never be used to purge lines, to operate pneumatic tools, or to dust clothing - cloth, plastics, etc., saturated with oxygen burn explosively. Accordingly, oxygen cylinders must never be used as hat racks, clothes hangers, etc., since leaky fittings can result in accumulations of gas in the covering material.

Insects in oxygen "pigtails" can ignite spontaneously and may cause sufficient heat and over-pressure to burst the pigtail, valve, or manifold: don't leave pigtails disconnected for more than a few minutes.

Do not use white lead, oil, grease, or any other non-approved joint compound for sealing oxygen-system fittings. Threaded connections in oxygen piping must be sealed with joint compounds or Teflon tape approved for oxygen service. Litharge and water is recommended for service pressures above 300 psig (2.0 MPa). Gaskets must be made of non-combustible materials.
