காஸ் சிலிண்டரில், இதை பாருங்க முதலில்!

for those of my bachelor pals and the women who r cooking day in n day out, be informed.
98% of us dont know this............. so read on, an be infomed

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 as

"Expired Cylinders are not safe for use as may cause leakages and inturn accidents."
According to experts, LPG cylinders have a life span of 20 to 25 years but should be checked every five years.
Alok Singh, in-charge (corporate communications), Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), says:
"The quarter of a year when the next check is due is the expiry date of the cylinder. The quarter is painted on one of the three 'vertical stays' on which the rim rests. The date is on the side of a 'stay' facing the regulator."

"If D-06 is painted on your cylinder, it means it has expired in the last quarter of 2006. A, B and C stand for the first, second and third quarters of a year," explained Singh.
for illustration ---- chk the LPG image below
The alphabets stand for quarters:

-- A for Jan-March (First Qtr) -- B for April-June (Second Qtr)
-- C for July-Sept (Third Qtr) -- D for Oct-December (Fourth Qtr)
o "D" stands for the last quarter i .e . Oct to Dec .
o "06" stands for the year 2006.

D-06 indicates the expiry life of cylinder and not the GAS filled in it.
This cylinder should not be used and returned back to the gas dealer.
Share this message ... if u feel important ............. with everyone and do not accept the cylinder if the date has already expired.

நல்ல தகவல் அம்பி. எனக்கு இதை பத்தி ஏற்கனவே தெரியும். ஒரு முறை இப்படி பழைய சிலிண்டரை போட்டதுக்கு நான் கேஸ் ஏஜென்சில போய் புகார் கூட கொடுத்தேன். அதுக்கு அவங்க எங்களுக்கு வர்ர சிலிண்டரை தான் நாங்க கொடுக்க முடியும் அப்டின்னு சொல்லிட்டாங்க.
