    Specifies requirements for the selection of safe oxy-fuel gas hand-held or portable equipment used in welding, cutting, heating and allied processes. This Standard also details the safe operation and maintenance of this type of equipment. It applies to portable or mobile gas cylinders, inclusive of manifolded packs of cylinders. Reticulated systems and fixed piping, together with equipment, such as permanently mounted flame-cutting machines, are not intended to be covered by this Standard.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies selection, operation and maintenance procedures for oxy-fuel gas hand-held or portable equipment used in welding, cutting, heating and allied processes. This Standard applies to equipment supplied from portable or mobile gas cylinders, inclusive of manifolded packs of cylinders. Cylinder mounted regulators, which may be easily removed by the users, control the downstream pressure for this equipment. The connection between the regulator and the downstream equipment is welding hose.Reticulated systems and fixed piping, together with equipment such as permanently mounted flame-cutting machines, are outside the scope of this Standard.
