Frequently Asked Questions
Viking Cylinders propane tanks are produced by Hexagon Ragasco, the worldwide leader in composite LPG cylinders. (You can learn more about Hexagon Ragasco here.) There are more than 12 million of these cylinders in service with families and businesses around the globe, and we have an outstanding safety record.
Additionally, on the bottom of page 2 in this DOT guidance document, it specifically states the RAGASCO cylinders were not recalled.
Layer two consists of composite fiber and resin wound around the seamless liner. This creates a vessel that has a tremendous capacity to withstand pressure. Our advanced curing process also ensures transparency, so you can see the level of gas remaining in the cylinder.
Layer three is the distinctively designed and extremely durable outer casing, which protects the pressure vessel and valve. Ergonomic handles allow for easy, comfortable lifting and are built for stacking.
Note: Did you know that most fuel gauges are unreliable? They read too full in warm temperatures and too empty in cold temperatures.
Note: Valves do NOT need to be replaced for requalification.
