What is LPG?

LPG stands for liquefied petroleum gas. It is commonly used for cooking and for heating water. It is a clean-burning, nonpoisonous, dependable and high-performance fuel stored and transported in containers as a liquid, but is generally drawn out and used as a gas.

 

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 pressurized 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 has three significant characteristics:

 

LPG allows efficient cooking

LPG is easily controllable, so users can cook with their desired heat or flame intensity.

 

LPG is heavier than air

When LPG leaks from its cylinder, LPG vapor 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.

 

LPG is odorless and colorless

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