FAQ's about the Safefill cylinder

A seamless composite translucent cylinder made up from a polyethylene, HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), moulded inner lining, glass fibres and resin are then wound round the inner liner to create an even greater strength and an outer layer is then added in the form of a polyethylene casing (HDPE). The casing provides both protection and an ergonomic grip.

We recommend the hand wheel type POL connector.

As with most cylinders current guidelines require a recertification at 10 years.

The cylinder complies with a wide range of international standards and approvals - the principal ones include ISO 9001, ISO 11119-3, EN 12245, EN 14427, DOT-SP12706 and TC-SU-5931.

The Safefill cylinder, because of the materials it is constructed with, is designed to allow the LPG to leak out gradually ensuing a controlled flame. Our cylinders withstand a burst pressure that is twice as high as their steel counterparts and because they will not BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion), the risk of explosion, in case of fire, is eliminated.

No, the use of propane/LPG in portable room heaters is not recommended.
