Existing Type 21 POL LPG valve cylinders to be phased out
Introducing the new LCC27 – Gas Cylinder Valve
Over the next 10 years, all 8.5kg, 3.7kg and Heatagas LPG cylinders will have their existing Type 21 POL valve phased out, and a new Type 27 LCC27 valve installed. In conjunction with this, all-new LPG appliances will be manufactured with a matching LCC27 appliance connection on the regular end of the gas hose.
Collaboration between the State and Territory Government Gas Technical Regulators Committee (GTRC), the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association of Australia (GAMAA), Standards Australia and Gas Energy Australia (GEA) has focussed on improving the consumer experience and maximise safety outcomes. It was implemented by making changes to the relevant Australian standards so that all Australians will benefit from nationally consistent requirements. The original project proposal submitted to Standards Australia by GEA is available on the Standards Australia website.
