LPG Tank Vapour 30 Liter (270 x 605) GZWM Cilindrical Horizontal 4 Hole - Incl. Valves - Camper Cooking (Gaseous) for your Motorhome of Foodtruck
This vapour tank is equipped with 4 fittings; an 80% filling valve with non-return valve, an overpressure valve (blow-off valve), an extraction valve (manually or electrically operated), a level meter with a clock. An optional gas tight housing (Tankkast) encloses these fittings and can collect any exhaust gases.
To view the tank content on the dashboard, an LED indicator with tank sensor is optionally available. A filling hose can be connected to the 80% filling valve with elbow, which is connected to a filling connection on the vehicle. The gas pressure from the vapour tank must be reduced and adjusted by means of a pressure regulator.
No 10-year re-test required thanks to High Quality Automotive ECE 67R-01 Approval. Please study the information below carefully.

Application: Gaseous LPG (Propane and Butane gas) leaves this type of LPG vapour tank, which is used in, for example, Motorhomes or Foodtrucks. For example for cooking or heating. Suitable for placement under a vehicle (Transverse or Longitudinal) depending on the available space and requirements, or in an open ventilated area.
If the gas tank is placed in the vehicle (interior), the use of the optional gas tight housing is mandatory and it must be mounted gas-tight. To be used in combination with a vent hose and a bottom vent for discharging any gases to the outside.
This LPG tank is not suitable for driving on LPG (liquefied gas).
Gas Tight Housing option: A Gas Tight Housing is used to protect the appendages and, in the case of built-in, to collect any gases from the tank and then to be able to discharge them via a vent hose and bottom vent. A tank cabinet is required if the LPG tank is placed in the interior of a vehicle and must be connected gas-tight by means of the supplied rubbers. A tank cabinet is not necessarily necessary if the LPG tank is placed in an outdoor area or in an open ventilated area. For example, under construction. Then the LPG tank can blow off directly into the open air.
Extraction valve type: A vapour gas tank is fitted with a manual valve as a standard. This means that the outlet of the gas tank must be opened and closed manually. This can sometimes be difficult if the tank is placed far below the vehicle and is difficult to access. A manula Valve is standard equipped with an 8mm compression coupling, so that an 8mm LPG pipe (copper / plastic) can be connected to the pressure regulator.
Optionally, instead of an 8mm compression connection, we can install a SHELL connection with a W21.8 left-hand thread on the hand tap. This option is sometimes used to connect a pressure regulator or a high-pressure gas hose directly to the vapor tank. (An additional adapter to a G.12 connection may be required for a good gas-tight connection.)
NB! With a hand tap with a Shell connection, the tank cabinet cannot be connected in a gas-tight manner and this method is therefore only suitable for an outdoor area and not suitable for built-in (indoor space).
OPTIONALLY you can also opt for an electric extraction Valve that is powered with 12V (11W) via an electrical circuit with an LPG switch and fuse (not included). This makes it possible to open and close the tank valve from the vehicle interior. It must be taken into account that if you stand still for a long time with the elec. extraction valve energized, this could drain the battery.
An 8mm LPG pipe also fits on this type of extraction valve, but with a Flare connection. Type: 1/2" UNF -20 SAE J512 45°Flare Male (12.5mm).
Indoor space / Outdoor space: For the following reason, we ask about the placement of the vapour gas tank: In the event that a gas tank is placed in an indoor space (built-in), it is necessary to provide the gas tank with a gas-tight housing (tankkast) and a vent hose, etc., for draining of any gases to the outside. A tank cabinet in combination with a hand tap cannot always be made gas-tight....
When using a manual extraction valve with a SHELL connection, it is NOT possible to connect the gas-tight housing, which means that this combination is NOT suitable for built-in (indoor space), but only for substructure or in an open, ventilated space.
In the case of a manual extraction valve with an 8mm compression connection, the gas-tight housing (tankkast) can be connected gas-tightly, but only if the extraction valve is facing inwards with the outlet. (the gas pipe can then be placed in a loop in the tank cupboard or run out of the tank cupboard via the same side as the filling hose).
With the manual extraction valve pointing directly outwards, the gas-tight housing cannot become gas-tight, because then there is no room for placing a gas-tight plastic sleeve. As a result, installation (inside space) is not possible.
First check very carefully which type of LPG tank and which dimensions you need and which fits in your application. Exchanging an LPG tank is sometimes difficult, since the transport of heavy tanks is per pallet and is expensive. (Pick up may also be possible.)
Correct Installation! Have a gas tank installed by an authorized specialist! Use the NPR-2577 guidelines such as, for example, a sufficiently strong mounting and the minimum free space. Find more information about the correct installation and mounting of an LPG vapor gas tank (cylinder) in the Tutorial: How do I install an LPG cylinder tank?
Have the entire installation inspected by a competent authority.
Pay attention to the positioning of the vapour gas tank for proper operation of the tank. The marking (left above the fittings) on the gas tank indicates the horizontal center plane and the top. The fittings are directed slightly downwards (i.e. just below the horizontal center plane).
Tank mounting: Use mounting rings or mounting brackets for tank diameter 270 mm.
Apply the RDW guidelines and NPR-2577 guidelines
TIP! In case of LPG substructure: Gas tank and valves provided with a protective coating for longer life. Repeat this annually.
NB! A Tank Certificate is included with every new LPG Tank. This is usually stuck on the box or on the tank itself. This contains information about, among other things, the approval, production date and serial number. This document is unique and very difficult to obtain again. So keep it very well! You may need it during the inspection of your car. Alternatively, download the 67R-01 approval document for this type of tank.
Shipping and processing of your order: The shipping costs depend on the delivery destination and the total weight of the order. You can see the shipping costs by placing the product(s) in the shopping cart and specifying the destination.
After you have ordered the gas tank, we will append the LPG tank for you, i.e. mount the tank fittings, as this is an expert job.
Alternatively, it is also possible to collect this product from Eindhoven (Ekkersrijt) (if in stock). In this case there are no additional transport costs. in case of collection it is necessary that you have first completed the order and the online payment with us.
