The term ‘LPG reticulated system’ or ‘Centralised gas supply’ must be terms you may have come across. While many apartments have started to put this system to use, the move is obviously going to revolutionise the way we use LPG.
So what exactly is this tough-worded “LPG reticulated system” all about? In our homes and offices, LPG cylinders are delivered against booking, and most probably we need to wait patiently for at least a month after the booking, until the big day arrives when we get our LPG cylinder. LPG is thus a highly precious commodity, not only because it is pricey, but also because it is not readily available on demand. An LPG cylinder is quite bulky and not something to be messed with. Weighing around 30 kg, it requires a good deal of manpower to transport them into the kitchens of homes, and this can get quite difficult in case of apartments without lifts. The LPG delivery man is usually a brawny man who can keep a full cylinder resting on his shoulder and walk quickly at the same time, quite a feat to watch.
Other than the cumbersomeness of shifting and moving this heavy metal cylinder filled with pressurized gas, the other (and most significant) factor to be considered is the safety aspect. The LPG cylinder is equivalent to a well-sized bomb when it malfunctions. Despite the intense care taken while manufacturing these cylinders built to withstand the high gas pressures inside, malfunctions can and do happen. We hear of several fire incidents started by gas leaks from cylinders, and cases of cylinders exploding under high pressure causing extensive damage to humans and property. The gas cylinder sitting inside your home has the power to blast the entire building, if it fails to function at some point of time. So the point is – Do you wish to continue living with a ticking bomb right in your kitchen??
Say hello to LPG reticulated system – your ultimate answer to all problems associated with LPG cylinders and their handling.
