How to protect and regulate LPG cylinder
Cylinders must be protected from the sun’s direct rays, especially in high-temperature climates. Cylinders must also be protected from ice and snow accumulation.
Before the gas is used, install the proper pressure-reducing regulator on the valve. After installation, verify the regulator is working, that all gauges are operating correctly and that all connections are tight to ensure that there are no leaks. When you are ready to use the gas, open the valve with your hands. Never use a wrench or other tool. If you cannot open it with your hands, do not use it.
Following these procedures will help prevent accidents. Remember, your safety when using compressed gas cylinders depends on you.
