Campingaz, formerly Camping Gaz, is a brand of compressed, mixed butane/propane gas supplied in small, lightweight, disposable canisters and larger, refillable cylinders designed for use as fuel while camping and caravanning. The fuel gas is compressed to a liquid and sold in characteristic blue metal containers.
The small disposable gas canisters are constructed of thin metal and typically used in portable camping stoves, small cooking rings and gas lamps. Inserting an original Campingaz canister into the device pierces it and, once the appliance’s valve is opened, allows the fuel gas to flow.
Pierceable canister must be completely empty before they are removed from the appliance, otherwise the remaining gas will escape and become a fire hazard. There is also a range of “Plus” self-sealing valve-type canisters, such as the CV 300 Plus, which can be disconnected and reconnected when not empty when they are fitted to compatible devices with the Easy Clic plus connection.
Campingaz Products will be available to purchase in the coming months.
