I learned my way around the kitchen at an early age. From my first forays into baking easy treats like coconut macaroons and chocolate crinkles to my initial attempts at cooking tonkatsu and mashed potatoes, all my memories had me slaving at our trusty gas range. I associated cooking with a bright, warm blue flame gently transforming whatever raw ingredients I had into creations my child self would proudly claim to be my very own.
Decades later, the kitchen I cook in has changed. So has my kitchen repertoire and the equipment I use. But one thing that has stayed constant is the presence of that trusty baby blue tank of gas labelled Shellane.
Nevertheless, even the most constant of things undergo change. For Shellane, it’s a name change as it’s now renamed Solane. Despite the name change, it’s important to underscore that it’s still the same product, delivering the same trusted quality its loyal customers have always relied on. It contains the same content, hailing from the same, safe Shell depot, following the same quality standards: the same trusted tanks and safety features and the same reliable regulators, undergoing the same stringent inspection procedures.
What’s with the change then? Well, aside from the new name and new look, customers both loyal and new can count on improved service. The new Solane now administers a 7-Point Safety Check and the Solane Timbang Challenge. Whenever a tank is delivered to your home, it is weighed in front of you, just to reassure you that you’re getting what you paid for.
The Solane 7-Point Safety Check
Place cylinders in a well-ventilated area, away from sources of ignition.
Inspect the rubber O-ring inside the valve. Ensure that it is free from scratches or cracks.
Use the correct regulator and check its condition frequently. Replace within 3 years.
- Regulator and Valve Connection
Attach the regulator and ensure that it is securely connected to the cylinder valve.
Use the correct hose and check its condition regularly. Replace the hose every 2 years.
- Hose Connection
Use metal clamps to attach the hose to the regulator and appliance.
- Flame Quality
Ensure that your burner produces a blue flame. Always maintain the quality of your gas appliance.
