Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders in India are designed, manufactured, tested and certified at manufacturing location to ensure cylinder are manufactured as per Indian Standard, IS 3196. Several tests are conducted on LPG Cylinders, in which acceptance test is one of the important tests to reveal cylinder parent metal mechanical properties. Two tensile specimens are prepared from finished cylinder batch for this test and tested on a universal testing machine to determine, yield strength, percentage elongation and ultimate tensile strength of parent metal. Values of these test results are compared against standard values prescribed in Indian standards to decide acceptance of cylinder batch for market release. There are various ways of preparing tensile sample for acceptance test, depending on the accuracy of test results and sample production requirements. An attempt has been made in this paper to review existing sample preparation practices for 33.3 litre water capacity domestic LPG Cylinders and suggested a feasible option for optimal sample preparation method in which both sample preparation timelines and dimensional accuracy can be achieved for accurate test results.
