The safe handling and transport of gaseous cylinders is extremely important to avoid injury caused by the accidental discharge of gaseous cylinders during transport, whether by vehicle or manual handling.FPAA RD02 “Cylinder Safety (Transport) Caps”

Safe Handling and Cylinder Transport Preparation

The safe handling and transport of cylinders are important safety considerations with gaseous fire suppression systems. Cylinder safety (transport) caps are one of several safety mechanisms used to avoid accidental discharges.

You can ensure that you or your employees are capable and confident in the safe handling and transport of cylinders by undertaking relevant training. If these training and certification costs are too prohibitive, please get in touch with FSP for assistance transporting your fire extinguishing agents.

iFLOW Valve Technology Transport Cap

We recommend the following precautions:

  1. All persons handling Gas Suppression cylinders should hold Extinguishing Agent Handling Licenses (EAHL). If you don’t want this expense, Contact us.
  2. When installing cylinders. Do not remove the valve transport cap until the cylinders are secured by the iFLOW matrix container bracketing and ready to be connected into a completed pipework system.
  3. When removing cylinders from storage areas. Cylinders should not be moved or transported if they do not have the appropriate safety cap fitted. (See FPAA RD02 for example caps).
