LPG and Safety
As with any flammable fluid, safety is paramount when handling LPG. When buying LPG, when cooking with LPG; when replacing gas cylinders that contain LPG, there are key safety tips that everyone should practice.
a. Always buy LPG cylinders from our authorized LPG distributors only.
b. When the LPG cylinder is delivered to your home, please check to ensure that the cylinder bears a genuine seal from the distributor. Do not accept the cylinder if the seal is broken.
2 Cooking with LPG
a. Keep windows open to ventilate your kitchen
b. Do not place flammable or plastic items near the flame
c. Turn pan handles away from the flame
d. Never leave your cooking unattended. The sauce or liquid in your cooking vessel could overflow and extinguish the burners, causing gas to leak.
3 LPG Cylinder Refill / Maintenance
a. Always keep the cylinder valve / regulator switched off when your gas stove / oven is not in use, especially at night and when not at home for extended periods
b. Always store the LPG cylinder in an upright position and away from other combustible and flammable materials. Store no more than one spare LPG cylinder at any given time.
c. Always ventilate your LPG cylinder storage area
d. Never tamper with your LPG cylinder
e. Make sure all parts of the installation are in good condition. If you should find anything wrong with any part, contact your distributor immediately and ask for assistance.
4 5-point Safety Check
Check the regulator to ensure it is not worn out or expired. Change the regulator every five years.
Check the rubber hose to ensure it is not worn out or expired. Change the rubber hose every two years.
Check the hose clips to ensure that they are in good working condition and properly secured.
Check the LPG cylinder for cracks.
Check for gas leaks by applying soap solution on cylinder joints. Appearance of soap bubbles will indicate a leak point. Do not use an open flame to detect leaks.
