For Safety at Home

Today as I was passing by the cylinder distributor in our colony a cylinder with A07 was found.


o "A" stands for the first quarter i .e. January to March .
o "07" stands for the present year 2007.

We all were still confused with the terms used above.

o A-07 indicates the expiry life of cylinder and not the GAS filled in it.
o This cylinder should not be used and returned to the gas dealer.

Expired Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause accidents.
All concerned should take necessary steps.

Other Valuable Information :

O Have u ever heard about LPG gas cylinder's expire date. I also didn'tknow.

o How to find LPG cylinder's expiry date?

o Very important information.
Most of us do not know this. I came to know today from the gas stockiest, because here one accident occurred.
Do you know that there is an expiry date (physical life) for LPGcylinders?

Expired Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause accidents. In thisregard 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 codedalphanumerically as follows A or B or C or D and some two digit number followingthis e.g. D06.

The alphabets stand for quarters -
-- A for March (First Qtr)
-- B for June (Second Qtr)
-- C for Sept (Third Qtr)
-- D for December (Fourth Qtr)

The digits stand for the year till it is valid.
Hence D06 would mean December qtr of 2006.
Share this message with everyone you know, UR kind cooperation will save
life of many people and create awareness among the public.

Please do not accept the cylinder if the date has already expired.
