What is LPG?

Where is use of LPG?

How much is thermal value of LPG?

How do LPG cylinders work?

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is said to have two halogenated butane gas and propane or a combination of them, which are kept in liquid state. Usually, small quantities of compounds such as propylene and butylene are also available in liquid gas.

Liquid gas is used for heating applications and as fuel for vehicles. It is also used in the manufacture of spray nozzles and as a coolant in cold stores such as refrigerators and freezers.

LPG in the refinery is a subsidiary of natural gas purification and refining of crude oil. The thermal value of liquid gas is 46.1 megajol / kg, which is higher than gasoline and petrol, and produces higher energy in equal weight, but its thermal value is less in equal volume, because it is gas and has a lower density. Each liter of liquid gas is 500 to 580 grams and each liter of gasoline weighs 710 to 770 grams. This gas is converted to a liquid at a temperature of 21 degrees Celsius at a pressure of 8 kg / cm2; at the time of production, it does not have any color, odour, or taste, which, for more safety , sulfur compounds called mercaptans (which include ethyl mercaptan and Methyl mercaptan) is added.

LPG is stored under pressure, as a liquid, in agas bottle. LPG gases can all be compressed into liquid at relatively low pressures.LPG liquid boils and turns back into gas vapour when you release some of the pressure in the gas bottle by turning on your gas appliance
