Liquefied Petroleum Gas or LPG as popularly known is an efficient and innovative energy source that finds its utility for consumers, industry and environment. One of the reputed and widely used eco-friendly fuels, LPG is a low-carbon and clean energy that doesn’t cost our Mother Earth. It is portable, widely available and is safe. It helps to cut down on the harmful impacts of climate change.
LPG Composition and Properties:
LPG is a natural occurring product of the natural gas extraction processes. It is also an automatic result of the oil refining process. This is primarily a mixture of two hydrocarbons: Propane and Butane. Marketed with an ISI conformation of IS 4576, typical LPG composition is 40% Propane and rest Butane
LPG is liquefied under ambient temperature and pressure. However, it is in gaseous state at normal temperature.
It is colorless, odorless. Hence to detect leakages all LPG are odorized with Ethyl Mercaptan
LPG is heavier than air, insoluble in water and expands by 250-270 times if allowed to convert into LPG vapour.
LPG has a higher calorific value than most of the commonly used fuels
Benefits of LPG:
LowerCarbon Footprint Clean Indoor cooking & (20% lower than that of Diesel healthy for all uers & 12% lower than Petrol)
Efficient combustion and Lower maintenance of the better end product quality combustion system
