Many hawker centres rely on City Gas for a continuous and reliable supply of piped gas.
Benefits of choosing piped gas include:
» convenience as piped gas is continuous
» save space as there is no need for gas cylinders
» reduce possibility of potential fires and safety hazards. We also provide a range commercial burners suitable for different types of cooking.
Comparison of City Gas vs. LPG
|Gas System||Low Pressure System (4″ – 6″ w.g.)||High Pressure System (18 – 20 psig at the cylinder outlet; 1psig = 28″ w.g.)|
|Lighter than air (Piped gas dissipates into the atmosphere when it leaks.)||Heavier than air (LPG will sink to the floor or go down the drains when it leaks.)|
|Large Gas Cylinder Compound
|Gas Supply||Continuous supply at stable pressure||Requires replenishing and changing of gas cylinders|
|Meter Accuracy Control||Meters are in accordance with EN 1395 and accredited with SAC-Singlas (Spring Singapore) under ISO 17025||Yet to be regulated.|
