Hi Guys, Does any one know where I can find the regulations regarding the transportation of compressed gas cylinders ? I have done some searches and found some Federal Register documents but of course they are vague or at least difficult for me to apply to my situation. I want to transport , oxygen, acetylene, argon, carbon dioxide, and helium that are in cylinders of 4 foot height on average. One or two at a time in a private vehicle. Do they have to be upright ? or can I lay them flat with the exception of acetylene ? What kind of restraints are required ? can they be in a trailer ? how must they be secured ?
Up till now I have only transported a set of 20cu and 10cu OA that is in a plastic carrying case which I strapped down and also secured the tanks to the case. I have not been too concerned about this set up, but now that I have some bigger tanks that will occasionally need to get filled I have been wondering how to move them.
