- Filling containers not purged of air
- Overfilled container exposed to heat, which includes radiant heat (sun).
- Use of an incorrect product such as propane in a container with relief valve set for butane pressures (Low set pressure for service)
- All containers exposed to extreme heat (fire).
- Excessive pressures created during filling
