A suitable vehicle is one that is adequately ventilated in the event of a product leak, and has an adequate method for securing any cylinders and containers during transport. However, as a minimum, the person(s), whether supplier or customer, transporting a compressed gas container in a vehicle must: • be knowledgeable of the hazards and precautions for the product(s) transported; • check any containers for damage or leaks; • secure the container against movement; • ensure that valve protection caps and valve outlet plugs or caps are in place; • make sure the container storage area is well ventilated; • not allow smoking or open flames within close proximity; • know what to do in case of a leak, incident, or emergency; • drive safely obeying all traffic laws and require occupants to wear seat belts; and • know product-related regulations and supplier instructions.

The range of flame temperatures is 1560 °C to 2100 0c.
Containers exposed to artificially created low temperatures (for example, refrigeration units) may undergo significantly decreased impact resistance and ductility. Get approval from the supplier before subjecting the container to such extremes. • Where containers are designed to accept a valve protection cap, the cap must be maintained in a secured position on the container except when the container is secured and connected for use. • Where provided, valve outlet caps or plugs should be securely affixed to the valve outlet prior to transportation.
