The difference between screw-in and plug-in cartridges
The difference can be explained quite simply: plug-in cartridges or piercing cartridges do not have a valve, but pierce the device when attached. It is important that the rubber seal surrounding the mandrel is clean – this ensures a tight seal.
Screw-type gas cartridges (also called valve cartridges) are screwed onto a device with a screw thread. As the name suggests, they are equipped with a valve that only allows gas to escape when the cartridge is screwed on. Thanks to the I.L.L. safety system (in accordance with EN 417:2012) that is integrated into every WALTER gas cartridge, these models can be removed and reused as often as you like.
What must be noted when storing WALTER gas cartridges?
Store original sealed gas cartridges in a cool and dry place. Low temperatures are no problem for small containers – heat, on the other hand, is. Even temperatures of 50° C can cause cartridges to leak or burst.
Once open, gas cartridges can only be stored in well-ventilated areas. Be careful! Cellars are not suitable for storing open gas cartridges. The gas has a higher density than air and therefore sinks. If the gas escapes from the cartridge, it can collect in invisible gases and thus poses a danger to humans and animals.
Please note: Gas cartridges are not as robust as gas tanks. Mostly made of tinplate, cartridges are much thinner and therefore more susceptible to damage from external influences.
How to dispose of disposable gas cartridges:
Once it is empty, your WALTER gas cartridge must be properly disposed of. One-time use models should ideally be brought to a recycling centre.
Please note: Non-resealable cartridges (plug-in cartridges) can only be removed from the device when completely empty!
