Handling: Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed. This is a high-pressure gas. Use piping and equipment adequately designed to withstand pressures to be encountered. Use with adequate ventilation. Close valve when not in use and when cylinder is empty. Always use a suitable hand truck or similar device for moving gas cylinders. Firmly secure cylinders during transport. Do not lift or move a cylinder by the cap. Do not roll or drag a cylinder to move it or allow cylinders to strike each other or any surface violently. Never tamper with or attempt to repair or alter cylinders, valves or any safety relief devices. Do not attempt to remove a stuck cap by using a lever in the cap ports. This may accidentally open the valve when the cap turns. Never work on a pressurized system. If there is a leak, close the cylinder valve, blow down the system by venting to a safe place, and then repair the leak. Be sure to read and understand all labels and other instructions supplied with all containers of this product. For safety information on general handling of compressed gas cylinders, it is recommended that a copy of Pamphlet P-1, Safe Handling of Compressed Gases in Containers, be obtained from the Compressed Gas Association, Inc. Store cylinders upright and secured in a well-protected, well-ventilated, dry location away from heavy traffic and emergency exits. Do not allow the temperature where cylinders are stored to exceed 125 degrees F (52 degrees C). Store cylinders at least 20 feet away from highly combustible materials, and away from any sparks, flames, or any other source of heat or ignition. Protect cylinders from physical damage. Assigned storage places should be located where cylinders will not be knocked over or damaged by passing or falling objects. Segregate full and empty cylinders. Prevent full cylinders from being stored for excessive periods of time. If gas cylinders were designed to have valve caps, keep caps on and hand-tight at all times when cylinders are not in use or connected for use. Caps are for valve protection ONLY.
Disposal: Return to supplier for reclamation.
