Arizona Propane Tank Storage

The Arizona summer is here and people are asking about their barbecue propane tanks and whether or not it is safe to have them exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. Propane tanks come equipped with pressure relief devices. When the pressure reaches a particular level, the pressure relief device opens and releases propane gas in order to avoid a cylinder explosion. When released, propane gas will sink to low spots, vulnerable to any kind of ignition. It is recommended to keep your propane tank out of direct sunlight in order to regulate the appropriate pressure level. Should the propane tank start to leak at the pressure relief device due to a long period of time in the sunlight, you’ll want to move the propane tank to a shaded area, outside and wrap a cool, wet towel around the neck of the tank.
