Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most pervasive on-the-job injuries across the U.S., and the compressed gas industry is no exception. Stemming from prolonged, repetitive movement, carpal tunnel syndrome is a progressive condition that worsens over time and can require surgical treatment, which can take two to three months to fully recover from.
Did you know that over 99% of cryogenic relief valve failures are due to a build-up of particulates, dirt and debris? And that tank slag, Teflon tape, and dirt are the most common culprits? When these contaminants build up in valves, they prevent the valves from re-seating properly. At best, a blocked valve results in minor leakage requiring valve replacement. At worst, a fully blocked relief valve leads to overpressurization causing dangerous and life-threatening system failure.
