Travaillez en sûreté en utilisant bien le propane!

PROPANE is a liquefied petroleum gas commonly referred to as gas cylinder, which has proven very popular for domestic, commercial and industrial uses. With the right appliances and the most elementary prudence, PROPANE use and handling is a safe, convenient and economical operation for all users.

PROPANE is extracted from natural gas and refinery gasses. When maintained above its boiling point (-42° C), propane usually remains in a vapour state. The boiling point is the temperature at which the gas in liquid state converts into vapour under atmospheric pressure. PROPANE has the property of changing from gaseous to liquid when compressed and remaining liquid under pressure when stored within specific containers such as bottles.

THE PRESSURE INSIDE PROPANE CONTAINERS WILL VARY ACCORDING TO THE TEMPERATURE OF THE GAS IN LIQUID STATE.

Whenever liquid PROPANE increases in temperature of 1 degree inside the container, there will be an increase in the level of pressure.

BOTTLES MUST BE KEPT UPRIGHT WHEN STORED, TRANSPORTED AND USED.

When the bottle is kept vertically, the safety valve is always in contact with the vapour, as it should be.

Propane is odorised so that its foul and uncommon smell helps detect gas leaks before there is an accumulation of a flammable mixture.

If you smell gas, turn off the valve on the bottle.
If you are unable to repair it yourself, ask your propane supplier to send its repair team.

Important

Make sure the bottles are either placed on a firm base or secured in order to prevent them from falling due to a number of factors like a frozen ground, etc.
