    This practice covers the procedures for filling low-pressure pressurized products in laboratory research and experimental work and in commercial refrigeration and pressure filling. Propellants and chemicals should be properly stored and handled. Care should be taken when handling sealing machinery such as crimpers and seamers and aerosol containers. Safety equipment should be installed and all basic and additional safety precautions should be properly disseminated and observed.
