This gas cylinder has a capacity of 35kg of propane; its empty weight (tare) is between 35 and 37kg.
Its use is mainly industrial or commercial, for those locations where it is not possible to use a bulk gas tank, although it is more and more frequent to see it used in domestic installations where a larger storage capacity is needed.
The cylinders must be placed outside the premises or residences, inside a shed, preferably as a simultaneous discharge bank formed by an equal number of cylinders (2+2, 3+3, 5+5, etc.) in such a way that half are in use and the other half form a reserve. In this way, when the first set runs out, the reserve cylinders automatically enter into use, thus offering an uninterrupted supply of gas.
The gas cylinder valve has a protective covering designed to protect it and avoid the depositing of foreign matter that might affect the correct functioning of the valve.
The gas cylinders are marked with their tare, the year the next regular check is due and a label or stamp to indicate the characteristics of the contents and the R/S safety phrases, as well as DISA's address and customer service telephone number.
They are different in appearance to the 40g butane gas cylinders because of the horizontal red strip that appears on the cylinder, as well as the inscription of the word PROPANE in the centre.
