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.
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.
