Keep It Safe with Sigma Cylinders: Essential Tips for Handling Sigma Gas Cylinders

Safe handling of LPG cylinders is essential for both personal and commercial use. Sigma Cylinders, a leader in the industry of manufacturing LPG cylinders, offers top-quality Sigma Gas Cylinders designed with safety as a priority. Here are key safety tips for effectively managing your Sigma Gas Cylinder.


Avoid Placing Objects on the Cylinder or Regulator

Never place a stone or any object on the cylinder or regulator. This can disrupt the regulator’s function and create a hazardous situation.


Do Not Use Rusted Cylinders

Using a rusted cylinder is dangerous. Rust can compromise the cylinder’s structure, increasing the risk of leaks. Regularly inspect your cylinder to ensure it remains rust-free.


Conduct Regular Inspections

Some cylinders on the market may look new but are of poor quality, with perforated skins that pose safety risks. Regular inspections are vital to maintaining the integrity and safety of your cylinder.



Check for the Safety Sticker

Every Sigma Gas Cylinder includes a safety sticker that shows how to safely use and connect the cylinder. This visual guide is an important resource for proper handling.


Know the Shelf Life of Your Cylinder

Here are the shelf-life guidelines for LPG cylinders:


1. Five-Year Pressure Test: After five years, your cylinder must undergo a pressure test at 30 bar to ensure no leaks, and its valve should be replaced. Visit any gas filling/station for this service.

2. Ten-Year Replacement: After ten years, the cylinder must be replaced with a new one. 

Following these safety tips ensures the safe and efficient use of your Sigma Gas Cylinder. Regular inspections, avoiding rust, and adhering to the official guidelines for shelf life are essential practices. Always check the safety sticker on your Sigma Cylinder for handling instructions.
