The place where you install your gas installation is very important. If the following precautions are taken, it will by itself be an insurance against any mishaps occurring in your kitchen.
Always keep the cylinders in a vertical position with the valve on top. If cylinder is placed in any other position, liquid LPG may gush out of the open valve creating a dangerous situation.
Cylinders must be installed at ground level and never below ground level or in cellars or basements etc.
Not more than two cylinders should be stored in a room. To keep two cylinders, the kitchen should have minimum floor area of 10 sq. meters.
If cylinders are placed in cupboards, these cupboards should be provided with ventilation openings both at floor level and at top level. A half gap should suffice.
Cylinders must not be installed in any position in which they may become overheated, e.g. alongside a sigree or any other heating appliance. If any heating appliance has to be used, it must be kept at above ground height and never on floor level.
Avoid storing combustible articles close to cylinder and LPG installation.
No other heating device such as an electric oven, kerosene stove, etc, should be placed within a metre of your gas appliance.
Do not keep cylinder exposed to sun, rain, dust and heat.
Do not keep any vessel / utensil / cloth etc. on the top of cylinder.
Always keep the safety / security cap tied with the top ring stay plate, so that in the event of leakage through valve spindle the cap can be fixed on the top of valve for stopping the escape of gas.
The installation should be kept at convenient place so that cylinder, Pressure Regulators knob and rubber tube is easily accessible.
Do not keep empty or full cylinders without cap fitted on the valve.
For operating the pressure regulator always follow the instruction given at the top sign plate of pressure regulators.
Always use BIS approved rubber tube, check for BIS mark on the rubber tube. The length of tube should be between 1 to 1.5 mtrs. Please ensure that rubber tube is replaced after 24 months of use.
Dont conceal any part of rubber tube by any type of shut or cover, which obstructs the visual check along the total length of tube.
Always use BIS marked hot plate/ appliances.
Avoid keeping pooja lamp and Refrigerator in Kitchen.
Get your cylinder checked by deliveryman at the time of receipt of refill.
Do not install the cooking appliance on the floor. The appliance should always be on a table or slab placed at a convenient height so that cooking is possible in a standing position. Do not use a wooden top table. If the table is of wood, use an asbestos sheet on the table and place the stove on top of it.
Do not place the appliance directly in front of the window. There is a chance that a strong breeze may put off the flame causing accumulation of LPG in the room.
The appliance should be on a table or slab with one side touching a plain wall. The backside of your appliance should be facing towards this wall. There should be no shelves or spoon racks on this wall. There is a possibility that your apparel may catch fire leaning over a lighted stove to retrive something placed or store on this wall.
The room/ kitchen where LPG is used should be well ventilated and should have cross - ventilation. LPG should never be used in a room with windows and doors shut.
Ensure that the nozzle of your appliance is of the same dimensions as the nozzle of your regulator and rubber tubing of the correct bore is used. Your dealer will advise you of the dimensions
The appliance must be at least one metre away from electric wiring, switch or plug points. Keep the kitchen clean as far as practicable to avoid rats, cockroaches etc.
