The Alugas MV cylinder is lightweight aluminium weighing only 6.7kg when empty and holds 21.7 litres of usable LPG when filled to 80% giving a usable 11KG working gas capacity.
The new MV Alugas cylinders from has only one Multi Valve which incorporates all the valves in one cluster. instead of the three individual valves like earlier cylinders.
Each Alugas cylinder multi-valve range has a unique safety valve setup which limits the cylinder filling to 80% through the action of a float activated over fill protection device activated by the LPG liquid level inside.
The Alugas MV cylinder also incorporates in the gas off take valve a rupture protection (excess flow device) as a further safety feature which replaces the need for special “rupture protection” pigtails with this valve fitted to them. This allows for safe travel with gas turned on and, in some cases, where allowed, operate the vehicles heating while driving.
The Alugas MV also boasts a revised float activated contents gauge that can be viewed from both above the cylinder as well as from the side for ease of use in confined spaces. A remote LED gauge can also be fitted to the Alugas MV cylinder to give a reading from inside the van at the touch of a button as an optional extra where required.
Revised service valve connection allows the cylinder to have the option of been used with rubber pigtail connection hoses or stainless-steel pigtail connection hoses offering longer service life.
