What is LPG?

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a mixture of propane & butane and are flammable hydrocarbons used as fuels in heating appliances, cooking and vehicles.

How LPG is processed

LPG is a byproduct of crude oil. It is produced during the crude oil refining process. Other byproducts include:

  1. Petrol- Used in cars
  2. Naphtha- For making chemicals
  3. Kerosene- Mainly aircraft fuel and domestic use (stoves and hurricane lamps)
  4. Diesel- Fuel for vehicles and other industrial applications
  5. Furnace Oil- Fuel for ships, power stations and boilers
  6. Bitumen- For building roads and roofs.

LPG Properties

Composition

LPG is mainly Propane (C3H8), Butane (C4H10) or a mix of Propane and Butane. Since LPG has such a simple chemical structure, it is among the cleanest of any alternative fuels.

Boiling point

LPG’s boiling point ranges from -42C to 0 ℃ depending on its mixture percentage of Propane and Butane.

Combustion

The combustion of LPG produces carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour, but sufficient air must be available. Inadequate appliance fueling or ventilation can result in the production of carbon monoxide, which can be toxic.

Storage

LPG is stored as a liquid under pressure.

Color

LPG is colourless and oduorless at processing stage and oduor is added for safety incase there is a leak.

Ignition temperature

The temperature required to ignite LPG in the air is around 500 ℃.
