ELECTRIC DRAIN HEATING TAPE

GAS CYLINDER BAND
The gas cylinder band is an ideal way of eliminating wastage of gas. It is an electrical resistance fitted with a thermostat which under adverse weather conditions (low temperatures) keeps the gas pressure constant and also allows the cylinder to be used until completely empty.


DAMAGE RISKS TO THE BAND

  • The band must not be bent to less than R° 10.
  • The cable attached to the band must not be subjected to being pulling by more than 8 to 10 Kg.
  • The band must not have any weight or sharp objects placed on the heating area.
  • Store in a dry place.

 

PROPER STORAGE
After use, the band and all of its component parts should be rolled up to a diameter of 15/20 cm. and placed back in its original box.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

  • Make sure that the outer surface of the cylinder is free from rust, dust and other deposits.
  • Position the band around the cylinder with the joint above the gas cylinders welded seam.
  • Hold in position using the central fastener and regulate the fit around the cylinder then close the other 2 fasteners.
  • The cable should preferably be placed towards the bottom (see drawing).
  • To avoid damaging the electrical cable it is advisable to fasten the cable to the cylinder using electricians straps or similar.
  • Switch on 4 to 5 minutes to pre-heat before using the gas.
  • If the cylinder is not being used for several hours, unplug the unit.
