THE SECURITY OF THE LPG SYSTEMS
Using advantage of
LPG fuel has been provided to millions of vehicles owner and stable
machinery users all around the world. If the usage of LPG wasnt
confidental all around the world the insurance primes would be limited
in order to prohibit the usage of LPG..
By the right mounting of LPG it is more secure than the petrol systems. If the system mounted by the trained people, suitable components are used, Parts or components are mounted in the security areas, fuel pipes are passed from the far of the exhaust pipes and after the assembly
Operation adjustments will be established and the leaking tests will be activated.
The fuel tanks used for autogas systems are more bearable against the hits and high temperature when ,compairing the normal fuel tanks. They are made of special sheets according the ECE-R67-01. After the autogas tnaks manufactured, radiation films of the welding places are radiated (photograhed) and they are tested. They are tested for bursting, for any gap and for any split before leaving the factory. They are delivered by the deakers and other sellers.
The buoy which is
fixed on the LPG tank controls the LPG level in the tank. An additional
valve was fixed beside the multiple control unit in new applications.
For the controls of LPG inlets-outlets, there is a manual valve on the
tank to open or close, to carry pippe lines into the inlet and outlet
points of the tank. These valves are used for closing the LPG inlet
and outlet during the maintains, and for accidents or fire events etc.
In addition to the excessive flow valve automatically enters the
circulation and locks the system automatically in case rear hits or
berakings of the carrier pipes etc. By this way outlet of the gass from
the tank completely stops. This supplies the safety of the driver.
The buoy on the LPG tank was adjusted as to fill the 80% of the tank Durin the LPG filling to the tank. Shaking the LPg tank in order to fill more gas spoils multy walf adjustment. In this case LPg. If there is more LPG flow in a LPG tank for any reason such as a break of the copper pipe, the leaking flow valve which was fixed to the tank, stops the LPG flow automatically at the outlet, the tank becomes overloaded. This is a dangerous case. Auto gass LPG tank should not be filled up more than 80 % of its capacity.
LPG leaking risk is less than petrol when compared with it.
