SECTION 4—INSPECTION AND COMPRESSOR INTERFACE
! DANGER
Improper filling or abuse of this cylinder, or failure to follow
these safety instructions may cause serious bodily injury or
death. High pressure oxidizing gas vigorously accelerates
combustion.
DO NOT alter or modify cylinder or related components.
DO NOT use Oil or Grease. Keep cylinder, cylinder valve, all
equipment and connections free of oil and grease to avoid
violent ignition resulting in serious bodily injury or death.
! WARNING
For medical applications. Use only as directed by a licensed
practitioner. Uninterrupted use of high concentrations of oxygen
over a long duration, without monitoring its effect on oxygen
content of arterial blood, may be harmful.
Oxygen Cylinders filled by the Venture HomeFill
shall be used for personal use only. "Not to be
filled for resale or use by professional users".
OXYGEN
2
This cylinder is to be used with the Invacare Venture
HomeFill system. This cylinder contains 93 ++ 3%
oxygen produced by an oxygen concentrator using
the pressure swing adsorption process.
DO NOT handle cylinder or use contents until you are
professionally trained, including emergency procedures.
Use in accordance with Venture HomeFill Operator’s Manual.
Open valve slowly. Close valve after each use and when empty.
Secure cylinder during storage and use. No smoking in cylinder
area. Keep away from heat, flame and spark. Keep out of
reach of children. DO NOT drop.
Transfilling of this gas is performed by Venture HomeFill Only.
Cylinders that have been refinished and/or exposed to
elevated temperatures must be hydrostatically tested before
filling. Cylinder temperature should not exceed 125°F (52°C).
Aluminum cylinders subject to the action of fire or heated to
temperatures in excess of 350°F must be withdrawn from
service and condemned by trained personnel. DO NOT use
caustic paint strippers. Valve and safety relief devices must be
removed and replaced by trained and authorized
personnel. DO NOT alter or change valve assembly.
