Segregation of Dangerous Goods Gases
Corrosive liquids can damage gas cylinders on contact. Flammable liquids can spread fire and allow flames to come into contact with gas cylinders. Other dangerous goods may also be adversely affected by gas cylinders in an emergency.
For this reason, gas cylinders are separated from other dangerous goods and combustible liquids by using appropriate fire rated screen wall barriers. Segregation of incompatible goods also allows safer use of appropriate fire-fighting equipment.
If a screen wall is not implemented, as a minimum, gas cylinders must be segregated from other incompatible gases by at least 3m or more (refer to diagram).
Illustration of segregation only. Gas cylinders must be secured
