The country is under the grip of Corona. Due to the second wave of corona virus, there has been a huge jump in the number of corona infected patients in the country.

Meanwhile, there were also reports from many places where oxygen cylinders either exploded or leaked oxygen from homes. Today, the director of Bedi Hospital, Chandigarh gave many big information about how we should keep oxygen cylinders at home and what should be kept in mind.
Director of Bedi Hospital, Dr. RS Bedi said that if you are using oxygen cylinders at home, then what should be kept in mind. He said that the cylinder should always be kept upright. Dr. Bedi said that cylinders should never be kept lying on the ground.
He said that many times people keep oxygen cylinders near the LPG cylinders used in kitchens in homes. This should not be done, it increases the chances of the cylinder bursting too much. Do not keep the oxygen cylinder at a temperature higher than 52 degrees, otherwise it can cause a blast in the cylinder.
Keep the cylinder in a cool place
Dr. Bedi went to the oxygen plant of the hospital and gave all these tips on how the oxygen cylinder should be used in the houses. Many times cylinders also burst due to overheating because oxygen tankers or small cylinders all require cooling, so never keep the cylinder hot or damp.
Before using the cylinder or applying it for the first time, its port should be cleaned with cotton cloth. And before adding the flow meter of the cylinder, clean it thoroughly with a cotton cloth, but never grease or grease on the port. Dr. Bedi told that there should be complete arrangement of ventilation in the room where the cylinder is kept. Due to the room being closed, there may be a blast in the cylinder.
Do not drag oxygen cylinder into the ground
Dr. Bedi, while giving great information, said that the cylinder should never be moved by rubbing it into the ground, it is creating a risk of blast. He told that whenever you take a refilled cylinder, check that its gauge should be between 100 to 130 KG.
