Valuable Tank Safety Information

If your cylinder was manufactured prior to 1988 and is due for requalification, (cylinders need to be requalified 12 years after the original date of manufacture and every five years thereafter) your valve must be replaced with an OPD.

The date of manufacture is present on the neck ring of the cylinder as a three or four digit number. Check the date on your cylinder to see if your tank needs to have the valve replaced. All propane cylinders will have to be equipped with an OPD prior to April 1, 2002, regardless of the manufacture’s date.

Northwest Propane is prohibited by law from filling a cylinder that does not meet these guidelines. Bring your cylinder to us the next time it needs to be filled and we can determine if your valve needs to be replaced.
