Just a Device
It cuts off supply of gas even if small quantity of leakage is detected
Fire incidents due to leakage of LPG are becoming very common, as a result of which valuable properties are damaged and precious lives lost. The structures are usually not insured and the affected persons do not get any compensation, except admissible relief provided by Administration. Instances of LPG related fire incidents are, usually, due to sheer negligence and could have been prevented. In order to prevent unnoticed leakage of LPG, a device called Gas Safety Device can prove very useful. The device is manufactured by various companies in India and is available in our state as well. Gas Safety Devices are designed to prevent leakage of LPG and thereby prevent accidents. The device is actually an emergency shut-off valve, which cuts off supply of gas even if small quantity of leakage is detected and also shuts down if there is leakage in the supply pipe-line from Cylinder to Gas Stove, rupturing of the gas tube, and even during the malfunction of the regulator. It automatically shut the supply of gas, if the pipe-tube catches fire or even if a minor leakage occurs. The device has a gauge-meter which indicates the quantity of gas inside the cylinder, which facilitates the customer to refill it in time. The product manufacturing companies claim that this device also helps save 20% gas during usage. The process of fixing the gas safety device on the LPG cylinder is very easy, it is simply clamped on to the cylinder and the regular gas regulator is fitted on it and it can be used normally.
It is hoped that with such improved safety devices, made available in the market at affordable prices, the incidents of accidents related LPG leakage will surely reduce.
