How many cartridges?

Are these disposable cartridges, or calor refillable cylinders

When you refer to signage are you talking about the HazMat signs?

Is there a reason that this has cropped up?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It would be a max of six cartridges and they are refillable. I had the hazmat signs in mind but of course if there are others i should use i would be interested in knowing about it. No pronlem has cropped up i just want to make sure i do everything properly and legally.

Sorry for the delay in replying, there was a problem with this website and i had to ring them to get the password to get in to see your reply.

Can you send me a link to the type of cartridge please as most small ones are not refillable. I do outdoor pursuits so know almost all stoves on the current market. Why carry 6?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Actually the cartridges arn't refillable and six is the no that will fit in a container that I have.The carts are small butane ones about a foot long and 4 inches in diameter

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, those are the kind.


I am a window cleaner and use a small butane camping stove to heat my water in winter. I keep a reserve of the cartridges in the car to replace when the one I am using burns out.

Expert:  James Mather replied 4 years ago.

As you can actually buy these from Argos and various outdoor stores in
packs of six, I cannot see any problem having half a dozen of them in your boot.

I would put a compressed gas and inflammable gas Hazchem sticker on the
boot, but that is, I think, as far as you need go.

Can I help further?
