Testing Requirements

For Steel, Stainless Steel, and Galvanised Bottles, the test cycle is on a (10) ten-yearly basis.

Composite Bottles’ test cycle is on a (5) five-yearly basis.
NB: It should be noted the Composite Bottles have a life cycle of (15) fifteen years from the date of manufacture.

Valve Replacements

The Valve is an important safety aspect of the LPG Bottle and must be replaced at the bottle’s test cycle interval.

  • The first safety aspect is the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV), usually found built at the rear of the Cylinder Valve, depicted by a red plastic cap.
    The PRV is intended to operate when the LPG Bottle is subject to intense stress and the pressure builds to the point that the Bottle could face catastrophic failure and rupture.
  • PRV will normally operate around 2.58MPa / 2585KPa / 375psi, releasing the Bottle’s gas traffic to the atmosphere, thus preventing the cylinder from rupturing.
Valve Upgrade Requirements Oct 2021
  • The second safety feature, introduced in 2021, was with a new valve called Type LCC27; this replaced the old style valve called Type 21 POL Valve.
  • The safety aspect of the LCC27, it will not accidentally release LPG into the atmosphere if the Valve Tap is turned on.
  • The LCC27 requires the POL connector or an LCC27 connector to be inserted before LPG is released.
