In many countries including India, LPG Gas is supplied to households in cylinder. In my town Jaipur also, the LPG Gas is supplied in Cylinders. Let us try to understand how to keep Home LPG Gas Pipeline to keep Cylinder outside the Kitchen. Many homeowners want to keep Home LPG Gas Pipeline to keep Cylinder outside the Kitchen.
There is great advantage of keeping Home LPG Gas Pipeline to keep Cylinder outside the Kitchen.
Let us firstly understand why to keep Home LPG Gas Pipeline to keep Cylinder outside the Kitchen. There are few advantages of keeping the Home LPG Gas Pipeline to keep Cylinder outside the Kitchen.
Saves on the space inside the kitchen. You get some extra space in your modern day Modular Kitchen or any type of Kitchen.
Makes you kitchen safer. Incase there is some leakage from the cylinder your kitchen has an added safety step.
If you create the Cylinder keeping space near your entry door or somewhere outside your house premises, the Gas Cylinder delivery boy will not be required to enter your house.
You also will not have to carry the heavy cylinder inside your house and carry the empty cylinder to give to the delivery person.
Protects your floor from cracking and breaking due to impacts of cylinder. This problem is more serious incase you are using Ceramic of Vitrified Tiles in your homes.
This is a wonderful advantage in multistory buildings. With the consent of the builder or co owners of the building, you can create a place on the ground floor itself to keep gas cylinders. The gas then can be supplied to your flat through pipe line.
Less gas is wasted as the pressure of the gas coming into your burner will be reduced. Hence, the low pressure gas will eventually burn less gas.
Now the question is how it must be done. The points to consider and precautions to be taken while doing this. Here it is important to mention that in future, the LPG gas is expected to be supplied through pipelines only, specially in India. The Govt of India has already started the process creating the infrastructure to ensure smooth LPG gas supply to homes through pipe line. This already being done in Surat successfully since long.
Let us now understand the points we must consider while getting this done.
The piping must be done in such a manner that incase in future when LPG Gas is supplied through pipe line. It should be easier for you and the agency supplying the gas to you easier in connecting the line.
Safety must be the top most priority.
Always use a very high quality composite pipe which does not rust of decay due to what ever reason.
Ensure that there is minimum joints to avoid any leakage. I will recommend that the flexible composite pipe without any joints in turns and bends be used.
There should be only two joints, that to exposed and easily accessible. The first one the inlet, where we will keep our cylinders and connect them to the pipe line. The second one the outlet, the point from which we will connect the gas supply to our burner. Both the points must be of highest quality with safety on/off valves.
You must have two on/off valves. One at the point from where the gas is being supplied to your kitchen. Other one, inside the kitchen from where you are connecting the pipe to your burner.
Kindly hire a reliable and reputed vendor to do the entire work. This work is best done during construction stage. Doing this in old homes where you are already living is a tricky case but not impossible. Only thing that you should consider is a good vendor to do the work and high quality material is used. You know you will be transporting an inflammable gas.
