Solane Tracks Down P408K Worth of Illegal LPG Tanks

Solane, leading LPG brand has confiscated 146 counterfeit and illegal LPG tanks in the first quarter of 2022 as it helps in preventing LPG-related fires in the country. 

Conducting 11 raids in several areas in Metro Manila, Camarines Norte, Cagayan, Sorsogon and Quirino, Solane was able to seize P408K worth of LPG tanks along with marked money, transaction receipts, fake plastic seals and other items. 

In Metro Manila, 53 tanks were confiscated in four different raids in Taguig City, Caloocan and Valenzuela, 23 of which came from a raid in Valenzuela City. Packs of counterfeit Solane valve seals were also recovered. 

Aside from the confiscated tanks, Solane was also able to get paraphernalia such as air compressor, spray gun, spray paint, plastic seals and plastic tracers. 

Arrested persons and confiscated pieces of evidence were brought to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group of each local government unit for documentation and proper disposition prior to the filing of appropriate cases in court. 

The recent raid operations are an extension of Solane's long-standing efforts to stop illegal LPG at the source. In 2021, Solane was able to confiscate a total of 1,486 tanks amounting to P4M.

The country's most trusted LPG brand Solane reaffirms its pursuit of making Filipino homes and communities fire-free by cracking down on malicious sources of counterfeit and substandard LPG products. In the first two months of 2022, the Bureau of Fire Protection reported a 13% increase in fire incidents compared to the same period last year. 

Through consistently conducting raid operations nationwide, Solane aims to reinforce the LPG Law, which calls for actions against illegal sources of LPGs. This is also in response to the government's action for LPG consumer safety. 

Solane reminds households and small businesses to choose only LPG products sold by authorized dealers. The entire weight of authentic filled Solane LPG tanks correspond to the total of its indicated tare weight and LPG content. 

Genuine Solane products also have quality markings on its tanks, including the registered brand name and trademark of manufacturer, standard used and test dates, serial or code number, 'Made in the Philippines' mark, tare weight and LPG content and expiry date. Verified Solane LPG tanks also come with a safety cap and biodegradable seal with a serial number for verification. To bring human error down to the minimum, Solane's AS valve (de salpak) is also equipped with a snap-on auto shutoff feature. 

With this, Solane is delivering time-tested safe sustainable and innovative LPG solutions as part of its unwavering commitment to keep Filipino kitchens, homes and communities free from fire incidents.
