It is recommended that the user thoroughly familiarize himself with the specific properties of these gases.

The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) has selected and standardized the valve outlet to be used on each gas cylinder. Thesestandards, contained in the document “CGA STANDARD V-1, Compressed Gas Cylinder Valve Outlet Connections" , have beenadopted to prevent the inadvertent mixing of gases which could be reactive and to avoid other possible misuse hazards.

The above chart may be used for guide purposes only. Consult your gas supplier to determine the actual CGA connection required when ordering a regulator.

*Exceptions: Flammables in Air or Oxidizers

*Propane in air, methane in air, carbon monoxide in air: CGA 590

Since the combined characteristics of a mixture of gases often differ from the properties of the separate components, different CGAconnections are often required. The chart above can be used as a reference for the CGA connections.

Mixtures which use the same CGA connection as if the minor component were in its pure gas form have not been included for the sakeof brevity. The proper fitting for these mixtures can be determined by looking up the minor component on the chart for pure gases.
