What is a LPG valve?

Any place where LPG is used, you could find a LPG valve, different kinds of LPG valves can meet different needs and different purposes. LPG valves are mainly made up of brass. This is mainly because of the special property of brass. Generally, when other metals collide with each other or other materials like concrete, sparks caused by "friction" usually occur. However, unlike ferrous metals like iron which will produce sparks upon impact, brass does not produce sparks upon impact. Brass is considered a non-sparking kind of metal. This property of brass makes it the perfect choice to make LPG valves. Since a little spark in the LPG container could lead to a destructive explosion, causing not only loss to precious assets, but also harm to human safety. During the connection of these common LPG accessories, it is not uncommon for the accessories to collide with each other. Being made of brass means that if flammable gases are present, these impacts will not produce any sparks, thus preventing possible ignition. Brass can also withstand low temperatures. This is important because the vaporization of LPG can cause cylinders and LPG valves to become very cold. Unlike mild steel, brass does not become brittle at low temperatures. The fact that brass is recyclable is another reason why brass is the perfect material. Recycling brass is common all over the world. Its high value provides great motivation for recycling. What is more? Manufacturing products from recycled brass is much more economical than using raw brass.

So, after knowing what exactly is a LPG valve, I think you must be eager to know how to detect the condition of a LPG valve. Well, it is not hard to do that work. First, turn off the gas with the LPG valve in the propane tank and then try to start the cooktop, if the cooktop still could ignite then there could be some errors with the LPG valve, if there isn’t any fire coming out after the ignition, then the LPG valve still has a nice control ability of the LPG. After these two steps above, you could try to set the LPG valve to its normal station, and then try to ignite the cooktop to the most volume. If the fire is big and bright as usual, then the LPG valve is good and if not then there could be an existing block inside the LPG valve. When facing the bad condition of a LPG valve, such as the leakage of gas due to the wear out of the LPG valve, please remember to open the windows first to let the gas go out and call the police and firefighters for help.
