Expiry for LPG Gas...

Do you know that there is an expiry

date (physical life) for LPG cylinders? Expired

Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause

accidents. In this regard, please be cautious

at the time of accepting any LPG cylinder from the vendor.

Here is how we can check the expiry of LPG cylinders:
On one of three side stems of the cylinder, the

expiry date is coded alpha numerically as follows

A or B or C or D and some two digit 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 is valid. Hence

D06 would mean December qtr of 2006.

Please Return Back the Cylinder

that you get with a

Expiry Date, they are prone to Leak and other

Hazardous accidents ...

The second example with D13 allows the cylinder

to be in use until Dec 2013 .
