My GAS IT tank and bottle system is now installed, what about introducing LPG for the first time?

Find attached a copy of the relevant purging section from the N.C.C. CoP 306 ( National Caravans Councils ) Code of Practice 306.


We always recommend that you check to make sure that any pressurised air that might have been left in the bottle or tank when assembling the tank and testing it for leaks, is fully removed from the bottle or tank before attempting to fill. This is done simply before you attempt to fill the tank or bottle by opening the outlet tap before a pigtail or regulator is connected to so that any compressed air pressure will simply fall away to nothing more than atmospheric pressure.

Once any pressurised air is removed then simply close the tap and refit any hoses or regulators that need to be fitted.

Now follow the N.C.C.'s Guidelines on introducing LPG for the first time to your GAS It tank or bottle.

 We always recommend a GAS IT gas tank or gas bottles LPG qualified engineer carries out all testing and servicing of GAS IT products.
