Operating Tips on StarGas
1. What is LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas)
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as fuel in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles. Hydrocarbons which constitute LPG are propane and butane.
2. Uses of LPG
LPG is used primarily as fuel in the Kitchen, to warm water or for house heating, and in a lesser proportion as fuel used by vehicles.
3. Know your StarGas bottle
The StarGas bottle is composed of a gas cylinder with a "click-on" technology. It is equipped with an anti-siphoning valve that prevents the illegal extraction of gas from one bottle to other. It is also equipped with a safety valve which controls the pressure in the bottle and allows excess pressure to escape, thus preventing the explosion of the bottle.
Our security seal guarantees the amount of gas filled at the filling plant.
