Because it's stored under pressure, all pressurised gas containers are cylindrical or spherical to eliminate corners which would be the weakest point.
A sphere is a very strong structure. The even distribution of stresses on the sphere's surfaces, both internally and externally, generally means that there are no weak points. That's why a drop of water forms a spherical shape when under free fall, in short, it achieves a shape where all the resultant stresses neutralize when no external force(gravity) is acting on it. Moreover, they have a smaller surface area per unit volume than any other shape of vessel. This means, that the quantity of heat transferred from warmer surroundings to the liquid in the sphere, will be less than that for cylindrical or rectangular storage vessels. Thus less pressurization due to external heat.
Because a spherical tank distributes the pressure of the liquid evenly
LPG BULK Means LPG TANKS.
LPG gas is transported under pressure, and cylinders are just the easiest way to build pressure vessels. If you'd try to put it on square containers, the sides would bulge, and spherical tanks are awkard to make and to transport.
Steel is strong, relatively cheap and amenable to being formed and welded to make tanks capable of holding significant pressures.
LPG = Liquid Propane Gas. A LPG tanker is a big ship with tanks to carry the liquid propane gast at low temperature.
Probably not a very sensible idea. Water tanks are unlikely to be rated for the pressures used for LPG tanks, and LPG, being both flammable and explosive, is not the stuff that you want to play with.
LPG stands for liquefied propane gas. LPG is propane stored as a liquid. Propane is a gas under normal atmospheric conditions, but it is usually stored under high pressure to torn it into a liquid.
It is stored in pressurized tanks.
Diesel is a fuel that is used in cars and stored in tanks. Gasoline / Petrol is another fuel that is used in cars and stored in tanks.
LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) Tanks are usually available in areas where access to a gas supply is not available. With a LPG Tank, the liquid vaporizes into gas in the upper level of the tank. The tanks are then tapped and connected to appliances for cooking and heating purposes.

Hi, A little LPG vaporised (when discharging) is the reason why LPG tanks get cold (Because liquid need heat to vaporise similar to boilling water). When you filling the tank the pressure is growup is the cause of incresing Saturated temperature.Email: email@example.com (from PETECARE, COPR in Viet Nam)
in the wings
Its stored in a liquefied state just to conserve the storage space
These tanks must be resistant to low temperature, corrosion, they must be tight and resist to pressure if it is needed.
it will be a about a mile or so less than petrol but less the cost i run mine on lpg 89 22foot c class and have 200 m range on the tanks
It is recommended that propane tanks should never be stored inside a home or garage. Propane tanks should be kept standing upright in well ventilated areas, near no flammable substances or materials.
liquefied petroleum gas and liquid propone gas LPG stands for "Liquified Petroleum Gas" or "Liquid Propane Gas". The term is commonly used when describing the gas tanks of vehicles which run on such fuel.
how can methanol be stored at above ground storage tanks
The fuel is usually stored in tanks which are strapped to the sides of the basket.
It is stored in two separate tanks. In the shuttle, the external tank(s) hold the two fuels as well as smaller tanks inside the shuttles wings.
They are rated in gallons because propane is stored in liquid form in propane tanks.
It would displace oxygen and reduce the corrosion of the tanks.
Because the gasses are under terrific pressure - to enable the 'user' to get the maximum time form the cylinder. The high pressure means that wood or plastic aren't suitable for their construction, as they cannot take the extreme force of the pressurised gas.EDIT: apparently LPG tanks can be made of plastic !
under ground in tanks so it doesnt ignite
