Acetylene Flow Rate Chart
To enable maximum safety during filling, transportation, and storage, Acetylene is dissolved into acetone that is distributed within a porous mass inside the cylinder. Due to this structure, there are restrictions in the amount of gas that the cylinder can provide without pulling acetone out of the cylinder with the gas. Use this chart to calculate the number of cylinders that should be available at the cylinder source (manifold) to ensure your system operates as desired.
Note: Be sure to stay consistent with the size of cylinder that is connected to the manifold after the system is installed.
|Number of Cylinders||Withdrawal Rate per Hour (Cu.Ft.)|
|145 Cu.Ft. Cylinder||250 Cu.Ft. Cylinder||300 Cu.Ft. Cylinder||400 Cu.Ft. Cylinder|
