Stored Pneumatic Energy

Release Pneumatic

Even after complete lockout, pressurized air may exist as a stored energy that needs to be addressed. Such potential could exist in cylinder or accumulator circuits and cause unexpected motion. Such unexpected motion could result in lacerations, pinching, crushing, or amputation.

To ensure safe conditions for maintenance, this pressure must be released in a safe manner as described by OEM or plant procedures.

Information covering sources of Pneumatic energy is available on the Pneumatic Energy Sources page.

Proper lockout/tagout can virtually eliminate the risk involved with hazardous energy.
