Have U Heard About Expiry Date on LPG Gas Cylinders?

Monday, July 19, 2010

Good to know!

No joke. Please read, especially for those who don't cook that often. Have U ever heard about LPG gas cylinder's expirydate?. Expired Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause accidents.

In this regard please be cautious at the time of accepting anyLPG cylinder from the Vendor. Here is how we can check the expiry of LPG cylinders:

On one of three side stems of the cylinder, theexpiry date is coded alpha numerically as follows A or B or C or D and some twodigit number following this e.g. D06.

The alphabets stand for quarters :-

1. A for March (First Qtr),
2. B for June (Second Qtr),
3. C for Sept (Third Qtr), &
4. D for December (Fourth Qtr).


The digits stand for the year till it isvalid. Hence D06 would mean December qtr of 2006. Please Return Back the Cylinder that you get with aExpiry Date, they are prone to Leak and other Hazardous accidents...


The second example with D13 allows thecylinder to be in use until Dec 2013.

It's worth running a check on your cylinder's NOW!!!
