Transporting refrigerant


How do you guys transport refrigerant cylinders with out having them explode due to the heat? Im more talking about 103 degree outside temps. With me being in the south, temps can climb high exp if you are storing it in a van or in direct sunlight with a truck?

Re: Transporting refrigerant


All cylinders have relief devices.

They won't explode.

Re: Transporting refrigerant


HSE state’s that cylinders should be transported on the back of a flatbed vehicle. If the cylinder is carried in a car or a van then it should have proper ventilation.
