When it comes to everyday household essentials, it’s almost always tempting to go for cheaper alternatives to save money. It may seem easy to dismiss an item as “Pwede na” and “Nakasanayan na kasi” without giving much thought on its safety and quality.
This may especially hold true for your LPG tank, but did you know that something as volatile as this product goes through so much to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe?
Every step of the way, Isla LPG, the company behind Solane, constantly checks that each tank is safe from leaks that may cause massive fires and explosions, while ensuring that valued customers get their money’s worth. With proliferating fake and substandard LPG tanks in the market, knowing that authentic and trusted LPG brands like Solane go through tedious security and quality checks means you have one less thing in the house to worry about.
Here’s how Solane tanks come from the plant and reach your homes, ensuring you get the LPG safety and quality you paid for:
Safety starts at the source. Solane makes sure that its liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) products are compliant with quality standards. LPG storage facilities and pipe systems within the plant are also inspected to ensure that they are at par with local and global safety standards, ensuring that there will be no contamination and leak in the workplace.
Refill and Distribution
Before any distribution takes place, Solane ensures that all trucks that carry Solane products are checked and inspected to make sure that they are compliant with safety standards.
Now what happens to the empty tanks and how do the replacement Solane tanks look smooth, clean, and rust-free? When empty LPG tanks are unloaded from packed trucks that come from distributors, Solane LPG tanks are cushioned from impact to prevent damage that may cause leakage.
Empty tanks are thoroughly checked for their authenticity, condition, and suitability for refill. Authentic Solane LPG tanks have a requalification date on the side, which indicates the date the tank is due for maintenance. Tanks that are found to be one month before their requalification date are removed from the refilling process and are re-inspected to ensure cylinder integrity.
Once clean, cylinders are refilled. Cylinders will then be double-checked for leaks and fitted with a biodegradable seal that has a unique serial number. Filled cylinders will be then tested based on their weight and safety. The cylinder weight must be exactly the sum of the tare weight, which is the weight of the tank when empty, and the LPG content.
Solane’s safety and quality check does not end with the distribution of LPG tanks to authorized showrooms and outlets. Each delivery Solane makes to your home comes with a 7-Point Safety Check, an exclusive and free-of-charge service made for your safety.
Solane’s well-trained riders conduct the 7-Point Safety Check to ensure proper ventilation, correct type and secure connection of regulator, o-ring and hose, as well as the flame quality.
Solane riders can also conduct the ‘Timbang Challenge,’ where the tank will be weighed in your presence before installation. If you purchase Solane LPG tanks at authorized distributors, these stations are equipped with accurate weighing scales to verify the content weight you purchased.
Solane urges consumers to exercise vigilance in protecting their kitchen and home by trusting only safe and trusted kitchen fuel like Solane LPG. Fake and substandard LPG tanks do not undergo stringent safety and quality measures, making them prone to leaks which may cause explosions and fires.
From the moment LPG tanks are filled at the source to the time they are welcomed to your homes, Solane makes sure that each tank will fully serve its purpose down to the last flame and not end up as a threat to you, your hard-earned property and your loved ones.
