Safety is Paramount at Somerset Safefill and Safefill
Standard rented gas cylinders are not intended to be refilled by the customer - and much is said about the dangers and legal implications of doing so. We couldn’t agree more. Safefill cylinders are designed to be refilled.
Our cylinders feature:
Automatic overfill prevention device - prevention of filling past 80% max fill
Additional back-check valve if you accidentally forget to close the valve after filling
Tamper-proof fittings which only allow gas to exit when connected to an appliance
Our cylinders comply with a wide range of international standards and approvals. The principal ones include:
- 2014/68/EU Pressure Equipment Directive
- SI 2016/1105 The Pressure Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016
- BS EN 13953 2015 Pressure Relief Valve
- ISO 11119-3 2013 Composite Gas Cylinders Specification and Test
- Notified Body: TUV SUD Czech s.r.o. No. 1017

OPERATION AND USE
IMPORTANT: FIRST FILLING ONLY When filling the cylinder for the FIRST TIME it is important to limit the fill to the following amounts:
5.0kg cylinder- fill to 6L max.
7.5kg cylinder- fill to 10L max.
10kg cylinder- fill to 15L max.
If you experience any difficulties, seek advice from your retailer or refill centre.
Cylinders should always be transported with the valve tap in a closed position even when connected for use.
Filling the cylinder Individual LPG providers give instructions at the pump on how to use their dispenser.
The cylinder MUST be filled in an upright position. During filling monitor the level of fill. See the “How to fill your Safefill cylinder” label on the Safefill cylinder.
If in any doubt seek advice from your retailer or refill centre. Connecting your appliance Make sure the Safefill lock-off valve (3) is closed when fitting the regulator. The fitting on the Safefill cylinder valve takes a standard propane regulator and should be connected in the usual way (Note the thread is left-handed so you tighten in an anti-clockwise direction).
