Propane Tank – BBQ Safety

Part of a great summer is getting back to the yard with some quality BBQ fun! Whether its a neighborhood event, garden party or just dinner with the family nothing beats a BBQ on a warm afternoon. Part of grilling your favorite foods means filling, transporting and hooking up your propane tank. W.O Stinson & Son Ltd. is happy to offer information combining two things we are very passionate about; propane & safety.

propane tank

Transporting a Propane Tank:

Keep valves closed and dust caps in place, even when your propane tank is empty.

Always transport cylinders upright and in a secure position:

This may mean using straps to secure the tanks if you have a pick-up truck. If you are driving a car, utilize the seat belts in the back seat to secure your propane tank. It is important to prevent your propane tank from falling, tipping or rolling while being transported. Hint: a 20lb propane tank fits perfectly into a plastic milk crate, making it easier to carry, transport and secure.

Always Handle Your Propane Tank Gently

Propane cylinders are very safe, but whether full or empty it is important to be gentle when putting the tank down or loading it into a vehicle.

Never Leave a Propane Tank in a Vehicle for Extended Lengths of Time

Speaking simply, propane is a very “cold” gas, therefore, propane expands when heated. Leaving a propane tank in a vehicle could cause the gas to heat and expand, creating a potentially dangerous situation. It is always best to store propane tanks in a cool, shady area when it is possible to do so.

Keep Propane Tanks Away from Heat or Flame

Propane is a combustible fuel in both its liquid and gas states. Always keep your tank away from excessive heat or flame. Fuel vapors or “fumes” are also combustible, so take caution when storing and transporting empty or full propane cylinders.

When Using a Propane Tank

  • Place and secure tank on a firm, even base.
  • Keep propane tank in a cool, shady area
  • Never use a propane tank indoors
  • After you have connected the cylinder, check for leaks. Use soapy water or a leak detector.
  • Fully open the cylinder valve so that it operates properly, turn valve off immediately after use

When You Are NOT Using Your Propane Cylinder

  • Close the valve tightly, even when the tank is empty, apply dust cap.
  • Store propane tanks in a manner that protects the valve from being bent or broken
  • Store your propane tanks away from excessive heat or flame.
  • Store your propane tanks outdoors in a well-ventilated area when not in use.
  • Place propane tanks in a secure, upright position away from open flames or excessive heat.
