FAQ’s about LPG in Cylinders
LPG leak is detected easily and timely due to its characteristic odor. Other ways of detecting leakage is the “blurring” when we look closely at the vicinity of the leak (due to the phenomenon of refraction) while for larger scale leakages, the noise or freezing at the point of LPG leaking. In any case, to find the exact point of leakage, we only need to make use of a special leak detector spray or use soapy water. At the point where the leakage is occurring bubbles will be noticed.

The process of LPG cylinders filling in the legitimate filling facilities always follows strict safety regulations. Whenever each cylinder empties, it is returned through the PetroGaz network to our facility, where it is subjected to rigorous testing before filled with LPG. Only if it is characterized usable it is refilled, checked for overflow, subjected to additional check for leaks, while the proper functioning of the stop cock is examined and afterwards the cylinder is “sealed” with a special safety cap and heat shrink cover. You should never use cylinders without this “seal”; immediately inform PetroGaz if such cylinder reaches your hands.

Although a cylinder is commonly used for low consumptions, that is where a relatively low LPG supply is required, a higher consumption may be covered when cylinders are placed in arrays of 2-3 or more depending on the space and usage, and thus a higher flow may be delivered but also with increased availability, due to the capability of replacing the empty cylinders, while the full ones are still serving consumption.
