In response to concerns from the field regarding potential dangers and safety issues associated with the industry-standard oxy/acetylene systems, Spika offers the Gas GuardianTM Oxy-Acetylene Welding Cart.
Based on a design created and patented by the U.S. Air Force in Vandenburg, Calif., the Gas GuardianTM addresses numerous hazards associated with oxy/acetylene cutting and welding:
Steel enclosures protect high pressure cylinders and valves from falling objects, reducing the possibility of the cylinders becoming missiles if struck
Regulators enclosed in the vented cabinet are protected from damage, sparks and flames
Triple-ply firewall complies with OSHA 1926.350 regulations regarding storage of fuel and oxidizer when not in direct use
Self-recoiling reel houses 25’ (7.6 m) of twin hose, allowing operator to extend the minimal amount required for the job, reducing trip hazards and potential for hose damage from hot metal
