5 Safety Tips For LPG Gas In Industrial Manifolds

Do you know, small-scale industries are major polluters of India, especially in tier-II and tier-III cities, causing 40% of total pollution? As manufacturers across sectors are currently transitioning towards greener energy sources, LPG is becoming the choice for coal or other traditional fuels. But as LPG is becoming a more popular choice among industries, it is important to learn safety tips that prevent explosions inside the industry.

It is important to be safe when handling LPG gas cylinders, as there is no exception when it comes to safety parameters. Below, you will find some of the safety tips for LPG gas in the industrial manifold, which is recommended by leading LPG private gas agencies in India.

Safety Tips For LPG Gas in Industrial Manifolds


Do Not Allow Flammable Item Inside Manifold

LPG just needs a spark to ignite, an aftereffect of an LPG explosion is drastic. To avoid accidental damage, it is better to keep away flammable items like lighter, open flames, and non-flame-proof electrical appliances. Moreover, it is advisable not to carry out hot work like welding, heating, etc, inside the manifold.


One of the most important safety tips that one needs to follow in an industrial manifold is housekeeping. It is important to keep the area clean every day, as foreign materials like everyday scrap items, such as metal rods, newspaper, packaging packets, or chemical bottles, can create so many issues in an emergency. They can block the path, catch immediate fire, or worse, it can create obstacles in the evacuation during gas explosions.

  • To keep the manifold safe some of the things must be kept in mind:
  • Keep the storage area isolated
  • Train members handling industrial manifold as a first fire response team
  • Conduct cleaning and housekeeping regularly

Tips For Emergency

No matter how many safety rules you keep in mind, there can be leaks or unfortunate accidents, so once you detect the leak, you must be aware of the line of the process of do's and don'ts to prevent LPG explosion.

  • Raise alarm- Inform everyone in the industry about the leak by raising the fire alarm.
  • Turn off all ignition sources- If you detect leakage, you must turn off all ignition sources to avoid fire.
  • Close all valves- If gas is leaking, turn off the valves and stop all operations.
  • Use fire extinguishers- In case of fire, use fire extinguishers, instead of water, which consists of Sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate that helps in pressuring down the flame.
  • Inform SHIVGAS Service center- In case of leakage or fire, you must inform the nearest private gas agencies dealership, as we will assist you in controlling the flame and if required inform the fire department.

The Proper Approach Road To The Manifold

The manifold consists of pipes, fittings, and valves, so it is important to keep the cylinders in the right position, so no one steps on the pipes while handling the cylinder. Another important point is to create the right path for the cylinder to reach the manifold. For this, there should not be any potholes, and the road should be smooth, the heavy cylinders should not be jolted down during transport, and for bulk transport, there should be a clear pathway from the parking lot to the storage area.

Earthing Testing

Measurement of earthing pit resistance regularly is important. The resistance should be less than 1Ohm. The resistance of the earthing pit reduces the production of static electricity which is caused due to movement in the manifold.


The above-mentioned tips are important for anyone who is either looking to set up an industry run by LPG, or anyone who wants to start an LPG gas dealership. For more safety you can go ahead and take safety training from SHIVGAS, to assure your industry or storage area is safe with proper industrial manifold installation.
