What is LPG?

LPG stands for liquefied petroleum gas. It is a safe and reliable fuel, commonly used for cooking and water heating. It is a clean-burning, non-poisonous, dependable and high-performance fuel stored and transported in containers as a liquid but is generally drawn out and used as a gas. Besides being centrally supplied through a network of pipelines, LPG can be stored in liquid form in a cylinder. For safety reasons, LPG has a distinctive smell by adding a special stenching agent in concentrations to help detect leaks. It is heavier than air, and therefore tends to accumulate on the ground in instances of gas leakage.

 

What is the composition of LPG?

LPG occurs naturally in crude oil and natural gas production fields, and is also produced during the oil refining process. It is a mixture of light gaseous hydrocarbons (propane, butane), which are gaseous at a normal ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure, but become liquid through the application of moderate pressure.

At normal temperatures and pressures, LPG will evaporate, so it is supplied in pressurised steel cylinders. To allow for thermal expansion, these cylinders are typically filled to between 80 and 85 percent of their capacity.

What are the significant characteristics of LPG?

    LPG is heavier than air

    When LPG leaks from its cylinder, LPG vapour will flow and accumulate at the ground level. Therefore, leaks are dangerous as LPG can burn when it comes in contact with any source of ignition. Always keep windows open and ventilate your kitchen well.

    LPG is odourless and colourless

    To detect leakage, LPG is given a distinctive smell by adding a special stenching agent in concentrations that will ensure its detection, even if the leakage is well below the level of flammability.
