9.11 Gas Hose Connectors

  1. Injection (Bunsen) burners and burner hose/tubing should be routinely inspected and free of defects (cracks, holes, pinched points, etc.).
  2. Before use assure the hose/tubing is securely connected to the gas valve and the burner before use.
  3. Covered flexible metal hoses manufactured for injection burner use are preferable to rubber tubing.
  4. Keep access to gas valves/shut-offs free of obstructions.
