Bromic Issues Safety Alert on LPG Pigtails

Graham Marshall - Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Bromic has issued a safety alert over its stainless steel flexible pigtails, used commonly by cylinder refillers and gas fitters.

According to the safety alert, LPG cylinders fitted with Bromic’s stainless steel flexible pigtails can under extreme conditions, malfunction, with the end fitting connected to the regulator or cylinder valve separating from the hose assembly. 

The safety alert covers Bromic stainless steel flexible pigtails under approval number AGA 66223 manufactured between January 2011 and December 2012, with the information confirmed on a red label on the product. 

All people refilling LPG cylinders should watch out for the integrity of the affected Bromic flexible stainless steel pigtails. 

If they are seen to exhibit any sign of potential separation, or there are other concerns, they should be replaced. 

If equivalent copper pigtails are present during inspection, changeover should be immediately completed. 

If not, contact should be made to Bromic for supply of equivalent copper or alternate flexible pigtail replacements.
