Abstract

See full text

A method for controllably delivering hydrocarbon gas, comprises selectively opening and closing a valve to control the flow of hydrocarbon gas from a pressure vessel to a supply line for a hydrocarbon gas-fueled device, detecting any airborne hydrocarbon gas, attempting to move the valve from an open state to a closed state in response to detecting airborne hydrocarbon gas while the valve is in the open state, and releasing a liquid sealant to the supply line in response to detecting escaped gas after at least attempting to move the valve to the closed state.
