The reason the cans get hot is from misuse, but the underlying problem supposedly was that the shut off valve did not shut off at the critical pressure before the can ruptured with the disasterous result that entails.

So I would guess the shut off valve in these (and no doubt all the susequent ones to come back to market), will have the shut off valve redesigned to incorporate operator misuse and actually prevent the can from rupturing.

Hi Pickle,
I very much appreciate the experiments you have carried out. My previous experience with portable gas stoves has been with GAZ canisters. One of these canisters will boil 2 litres of water for well over 1.5 hours. As they were not to be carried on board aircraft I used to empty them then fill (partially) with water before disposal into general garbage. Refer Hilton bombing theory.
Now what I would like to know is how safe is it to dispose of the butane canisters, that you have tested, into general garbage. And how do you carry the unused/partially used canisters, inside the Paj, outside or in a trailer?.

I carry 8 cxanisters inside a black plastic battery storage box (as you,d buy from bcf or supercheep. Put thin spong rubber around and just leave in a box in the trailer. No problems. When they are empty I turn them upside down...press the nozzle in and this allows any remaing gas to disperse. Then chuck in the bin.

Mine are carried in a used washing powder bucket that can hold about 5 . Have them wrapped in odd socks found in the socks draw. Discard as per any other pressurised vessel (ie fly spray /deodorant.) in the bin . Not a danger if the have no gas/ propellant left inside.

I carry mine in a crate inside the car, with the original caps on. When they get towards the end, I run them in a burner until they're empty (at home) and throw them in the bin.

I have also shot some with a rifle, and the results were disappointingly underwhelming.

Carry all of mine in the rear draws, I slide each can into two rubber beer can cooler, one from the top and one from the bottom. The cartridge fits perfectly, keeps them cool, no rattleing sound and you can drop then without damage.
Just remove and use.

Hi,
Thanks for your replies. Will check for old socks or similar. By the way an old cotton sock makes a good cleaning mitt. Or just to keep your hands clean when changing a tyre on the way to a party, wedding etc. Keep a pair near your tool kit. I used them when cycling, for lifting the chain back onto the sprockets and to clean and oil the frame, wheel rims and hubs, a very versatile accessory.
