Cracked pigtail caused high volume leak in oxygen system!

Alliance Medical Gas was asked to evaluate a high volume leak in the existing Oxygen system in Einstein Surgery Center- PA, the leak was caused by an over tightened oxygen pigtail.

Alliance Medical Gas was asked to evaluate a high volume leak in the existing Oxygen system, upon inspection and pressure testing it was determined the cause of the leak was a Oxygen pigtail that was over tightened, this created a leak that used over 3000 cu ft of USP Oxygen in the course of two days. Care should be taken when connecting cylinders to the pig tails to tighten snug plus one quarter turn this will properly seat the CGA fitting to the tank connection. Over tightening can and will create a leak and cost the owner significant funds over time if not repaired.  To learn more please contact us atwww.alliancemedicalgas.net or via phone at 413-301-7361.
