ESAB Regulators Offer Explosion Control

Welding and cutting product manufacturer ESAB says all oxygen regulators carry an inherent danger that the oxygen could spontaneously ignite if it encounters certain impurities, such as hydrocarbons, within the regulator. These accidents occur most often when regulators are used without following prescribed safety practices, but even the most conscientious worker could make a mistake.

In the resultant cylinder explosions, regulator pieces can become burning projectiles and cause serious injuries. ESAB says it manufactures a complete line of regulators that are unsurpassed in their field for safety and capacity, with patented built-in explosion protection.

ESAB’s design suppresses internal forces from a cylinder explosion within the cylinder and thereby minimizes the risk of personal injury.

ESAB’s PUROX and OXWELD brand oxygen regulators include this patented safety design. ESAB says all its regulators, flowmeters and valves are designed to provide safe gas control in applications ranging from light-duty maintenance and repair to heavy-duty production.

ESAB says its Gas Apparatus Lifetime Warranty covers manufacturer defect in materials and workmanship as well as normal wear and tear.
