Xiaobian want to tell everyone clearly, wrong, fifteen years deadline, directly scrapped, there is no reason.


State Administration of Quality Supervision in 2015 on the life of the cylinder requirements


       Official Document: Notice of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine on Relevant Issues on Safety Supervision of Pressure Gas Cylinders (QCQT [2015] No.675) Section 2: Safety Assessment of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Cylinders.


       In accordance with GB5842-2006 "liquefied petroleum gas cylinders" standard manufacturing cylinders, manufacturing units promised design life of 8 years to reach the design life of liquefied petroleum gas cylinders, you can pass the safety assessment of qualified, the longest not to use More than one regular inspection cycle. Safety assessment by the liquefied petroleum gas cylinder inspection qualification inspection agencies in accordance with GB8334 "liquefied petroleum gas cylinders regular inspection and assessment of" national standards. The inspection agency shall be responsible for the conclusion of the assessment and at the same time shall issue a safety assessment report and spray the words "qualified for safety assessment" with a word height of 60 to 80mm on the bottle body.
