How to Check the Expiry Date of LPG Gas Cylinder

Have you ever heard about LPG gas cylinder’s expire date? I also didn’t know till I came across this email telling that every LPG gas cylinder comes with an expiry date and you should check it out before taking delivery of your gas refill. It also tells you the method of finding out expiry date for you cylinder. But remember, it is the expiry date of the cylinder and not the gas. Expired cylinders are dangerous and can be a threat to life.

How to find LPG cylinder’s expiry date?

Very important information!

Most of us do not know this. I came to know recently from the gas stockiest, because an accident occurred.

Do you know that there is an expiry date (physical life) for LPG cylinders?

Expired Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause accidents. In this regard 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:

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 –

  • A for March (First quarter),
  • B for June (Second quarter),
  • C for Sept (Third quarter), &
  • D for December (Fourth quarter).

The digits stand for the year till it is valid. Hence D06 would mean December quarter of 2006.
