Is it safe to keep gas cylinder in sunlight?
Likewise, can a gas cylinder explode in the sun?
No, the gas bottle will not explode. When the sun is shining and the temperature rises, the pressure in the gas bottle obviously rises as well. Preferably, store the bottles in a cool place in the shade. Preferably do not place a connected gas bottle in bright sunlight and never near a source of heat.
Similarly, is it safe to keep gas cylinder in rain? Avoid storing combustible articles close to cylinder and LPG installation. Do not keep cylinder exposed to sun, rain, dust and heat. Do not keep any vessel / utensil / cloth etc.
Subsequently, one may also ask, can gas cylinders be stored outside?
Gas cylinders must be protected at all times from industrial heat and ignition sources, as well as isolated from combustibles. Outdoor cylinder stores are ideal because they can be deliberately situated away from: Operating plant, furnaces, radiators, boilers, and other machinery that produce industrial heat.
