Today, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is used in many households. Daily cooking is done with the help of this in most of the houses. If, we look carefully at this gas cylinder, we will notice that there are some holes provided at the bottom side of the cylinder. The entire cylinder bears the load on this lower part. But have we ever thought about why these holes are given on this lower part of the cylinder? Because these holes are not design, but there is a scientific reason for giving these holes
What is the scientific reason – in fact these holes provided on the cylinder are very useful. These holes are used to control the temperature of the LPG gas in the cylinder. Many times the temperature of the gas cylinder increases. As air passes through these holes, it helps in reducing the temperature generated. Also, these holes also provide protection to the cylinder from the ground heat. Overall, these holes protect the cylinder from accidents.
Such an advantage
Besides, there is another advantage of having holes on the underside of the cylinder. These holes also facilitate cleaning under the cylinder. Because when you wash your floor with water, these holes prevent the water from pooling under the cylinder.
Why are cylinders given a special color? Have you ever wondered why domestic LPG cylinders are red in color. So there is a scientific reason for this too. It is colored red so that it can be clearly seen even from a great distance. This makes transportation of the cylinder easy.
