LPG cylinder care and usage
Many people use gas as their fuel source for cooking food. Campers, home owners, and caravanners alike make use of the LPG cylinder units available from Cadac. Our products have been designed to comply with the highest standards of safety.

To prevent accidents and injuries from occurring responsible usage of the LPG cylinder units is promoted. We provide comprehensive product care and usage guidelines on our site and in the manuals. You are also welcome to call us for any assistance should you be unsure of operation procedures.
Some of the tips that you will find useful are shared below.
Refilling of the cylinders
Only refill the cylinders at approved LPG gas dealers. If the units are delivered to your home, make sure that they contain seals. Always ensure that the cylinders are filled to the proper level and never overfilled. Do the checking at the dealer.
Worn out components are dangerous
Wear and tear on the hose, regulator, valve, and any rubber can pose leakage risks. Never use tape to seal the rubber and then try to use the unit. If there is a leakage that cannot be repaired, replace the component immediately. You will find a list of Cadac agents at our website that will be able to assist.
Storage of the cylinders
When not in use store the cylinders in the upright position with the valve protection caps on. Remove the safety key and store at a place where you will easily find it. Always store the units in the upright position far from any heat source and in a well ventilated area. Don’t store cylinders containing different gasses together. Keep the cylinders separate and well marked to prevent any confusion.
