Do you know that LPG gas cylinders have expiry dates?

ng0meL by ummi

I've just received an emel from my SIL. Quite informative to share..

Expired LPG cylinders are not safe for use
and may cause accidents.
In this regard,
please be cautious at the time
accepting any LPG cylinder
from your vendor.

Here is how we can check on the expiry of LPG cylinders:

On one of three side stems of the cylinder,
the expiry date is coded alpha numerically
as follows:

A or B or C or D
and some two digit number
following this,
e.g. D06.

The alphabets stand for quarters -
1. A for March (first quarter),
2. B for June (second quarter),
3. C for September (third
quarter), &
4. D for December (fourth quarter).

The digits stand for the year till it is valid.

Hence D06 would mean
December quarter of 2006.
Please return back the cylinder that you get with an
expired date. They are prone to leaks and other hazards.

This second example of D13 allows the cylinder to be in use until December 2013.
