Afrox LPGas is a very safe product and has a long and well-established safety record. It can be considered at its safest when the flame is lit and the gas is burning correctly.
Afrox LPGas cylinders and installations are manufactured to internationally recognised standards and specifications. Cylinders and bulk storage vessels are designed to effectively transport and store the gas under pressure and then to deliver the gas at the required pressure. Afrox Handigas is stored and transported in its liquid form. When the valve is opened, pressure is released which causes the gas to boil off as a vapour. It is this vapour which when mixed with air burns so effectively, making Afrox Handigas the ideal form of energy for all heating energy processes.
When the gas cylinder valve is shut the gas is safely contained under pressure in the cylinder in its liquid form. Because heat will affect the pressure of the LPGas in the cylinder, it is important to make sure that the cylinder is not stored or placed in a position where it can be subjected to extreme heat. It is also important to ensure that the cylinder is always stored in the upright position in a place that is well ventilated.
Should gas escape from a cylinder, follow these simple but effective safety procedures.
Follow this simple rule: Light Up or Shut Down.
