Assembly of the superstructure

In the case of cruise liners, aluminium superstructures are also installed. Sections made from this material have a weight advantage and enable higher superstructures than comparable ones made of steel. Thus, larger ships can be built, allowing larger numbers of passengers. The welding and cutting processes used to make the sections are similar for both aluminium and steel. However, the welding processes with aluminium require the use of inert gases. Thus, arc welding methods such as MSG welding (here, MIG welding) or laser beam welding are applicable, but not gas welding or flame cutting.

null Safety Pocket Guides

The guides focus on the safety of our customers when handling gas cylinders. In addition to providing basic knowledge such as what to do when ordering and receiving cylinder gases, they also convey further know-how that is essential for the safe handling of gases.

The pocket guide entitled “Safety No. 1 – The content of your gas cylinders” gives customers an overview of, among other things, hazard symbols on cylinder necks. This is designed to make customers aware of the urgent need to familiarise themselves with the properties of the cylinder contents and the associated hazards when using the gas. The guide also lists the specifications of the most common gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide etc.

The “Safety No. 2 - Safe handling of gas cylinders” guide focuses – as the title suggests – on the safe handling of gas cylinders, for example when manually lifting or rolling gas cylinders.

The “Safety No. 3 - Safe transport of gas cylinders” pocket guide provides gas users with basic information for the safe transportation of dry ice and gases in vehicles, both in the gaseous and liquid state. The transportation of gas cylinders by private individuals represents an underestimated safety risk.

The pocket guide “Safety No. 4 - Safe transport of dry ice as a coolant” contains safety guidelines for the use of solid CO2 as a coolant when transporting perishable goods in various coolers.

The pocket guide “Safety No. 5 - Connecting Gas Cylinders” gives tips and advice for safely connecting pressure reducers to gas cylinders.
