Emirates Gas, Emarat introduce new LPG cylinder seal

DUBAI, 29 days ago

Enoc Group’s subsidiary Emirates Gas (Emgas) and Emarat have jointly introduced a new seal for LPG cylinders that not only adds to the safety of users but also maintains the availability of authentic products and increases operational efficiencies in the market  and protecting consumer rights.
The unified Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) seal has various new elements including colour, material, position of the hologram and a unique serial number along with tamper-proof features. 
Green in colour, the new seal carries the hologram of Emirates Gas and Emarat, each with a unique serial number positioned horizontally on the shrink seal to mitigate any illegal distribution of LPG cylinders by unauthorised distributors, said a statement from Emgas. 
Unlike the old LPG cylinder seal, the new seal is equipped with an aluminium foil cap which is impossible to duplicate and reuse after it is unpacked once, it stated.  
Enoc Group CEO Saif Humaid Al Falasi said: "he safety of our customers and distributors remains our paramount priority. Introducing the new seal for LPG cylinders is one of several measures we undertake to curb attempts which threaten the safety of customers, employees and members of the community."
"This initiative underpins our commitment to maintain the highest HSE standards at Emirates Gas as well as add to the safety and well-being of our customers," he added.
Earlier, Emirates Gas used a yellow seal whereas Emarat had a white seal and both entities used their own unique serial number. 
In order to further enhance safety, the hologram has now been positioned at the top of the cap which will get damaged once the seal is broken as it is made of thin aluminium foil and attached to the seal, said Emgas in its statement. 
With the launch of its unified seal, Emirates Gas and Emarat have called upon customers to buy LPG cylinders only from authorised distributors and ensure the seal is intact and only cut in front of them when making the purchase. 
Customers should also request a validated VAT invoice from the distributor for each transaction as per the UAE Government regulations, which can be used as proof if any complaint needs to be raised, it added.
Emarat Director General Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi said its customers are of principal importance and the introduction of a new and improved LPG cylinder seal ensures an additional layer of operational reassurance. 
"The teams have worked tirelessly on making adjustments to give the user a better and safer experience and we thank those involved for developing a higher quality product. Through continued research in science and manufacturing, we at Emarat are committed to bringing new innovations to our customers to maintain an impeccable service offering," he added.-TradeAabia News Service
