Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) is derived from fossil fuel sources. It is composed primarily of propane and/or butane, and it burns cleanly without producing soot. It is commonly used in vehicles and household heating appliances.

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

What is the compound in lpg gas?

LPG or liquefied petroleum gas is a mixture of hydrocarbon gases. The two most common are butane (C4H10) and propane (C3H8).

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

What could cause a dual fuel system to idle slow and die when running on LPG?

Could it be not enough pressure?

Is the engine in good condition? If not, repair it. Tight valve clearences will cause this so make sure you check them. Check & elliminate vacuum leaks and ensure no air leaks in the induction system. Check & adjust idle speed & ignition timing on petrol to correct setting. Check idle speed on gas, should be similar, within 100 rpm. If not, check idle mixture setting on gas, use vacuum gauge to obtain highest reading while adjusting mixture setting.

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

How can you stop an engine stalling on LPG when stopping at junctions and roundabouts?

change the direction of the air intake to stop ram air or get the vechile tuned on gas correctly

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

What is the chemical composition of LPG gass?

LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) is a mixture of predominantly alkane hydrocarbons, with either propane or butane usually present in greatest amount and both of these almost always present.

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

Why is LPG considered an ideal fuel?

For a comparison with methane see the link below.

LPG is not considered as an ideal fuel, the ideal don't exist.

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

Can we convert public buses from diesel engines to LPG engines?

No, a diesel engine will not burn LPG. It would destroy a diesel engine. A gasoline engine can, with some modifications, burn LPG.

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

What is the difference between oxy-acet welding and lpg welding?

The Oxy-acetylene flame is much hotter and the preferred combination for the welder especially when welding pipe and plate metal. Somewhat of a rare welding procedure in modern times. Replaced by arc welding.

Liquid Propane Gas burns cooler and is preferred by employers as it is cheaper. Not bad results on light gauge material, again takes longer to heat up.

What is LPG?

LPG this is the abbreviation for liquid petroleum gas currently used by some specialy adapted cars and some domestic central heating systems Answer LPG is basically propane with other molecules like butane in it. If you're making a product that contains propane, LPG won't work for you. People who use this as fuel gas don't care about the other molecules--you can cook over a propane-butane flame just as well as you can a pure-propane flame.

LPG has a massive range of uses, mainly used for cylinders across many different markets as an efficient fuel container in the agricultural, recreation, hospitality, calefaction, construction, sailing and fishing sectors. It can serve as fuel for cooking, central heating and to water heating and is a particularly cost-effective and efficient way to heat off-grid homes.

In the safety font LPG cylinders must be updated to new standards in safety and user experience, giving a huge contribution for domestic usage.

Cylinders have been developed over time and their heritage can be seen in the various generations. The first generation of cylinders were introduced between 1870-1880, to store liquid carbon dioxide for industrial gas businesses. They were long steel tubes without handles and very hard to handle. Later on, the second generation was introduced to fill up some gaps of the first one. They were also made from steel, but handle, shorter but wider and the shape has been refined. This generation of cylinder is the most populous and known as the "traditional" cylinder. Third generation cylinders improved upon type II, using plastic for coating the metal exterior allowing the exterior to be customised. However, these cylinders continue to have the same drawbacks as Generation I and II.

Generation IV cylinders are the latest on the market. They were developed with aerospace technology and represent a real advance in technology, that otherwise has effectively remained unchanged over 75 years.

Indeed, there are a lot of issues associated with the steel LPG cylinders. They are heavy to handle, corrosive, difficult to maintain with a high logistic cost, dirty and easily damaged, explosive and affect by the weather conditions. These issues can be sorted by the composite ones, which represent the new generation of cylinders. Back-to-front the first ones, the latter ones have unique qualities: they are light in weight, no corrosive, 100% environment friendly, easy to handle, translucent, no explosive, aesthetically appealing and with a low maintenance and logistical cost.

There are a couple of companies which have started to work on LPG composite cylinders, including Aburi Composites, London based, Hexagon, In Norway and Hyundai in Asia. Also in India there are new factories.

Why does an LPG cylinder on a barbecue get cold on the outside when it is turned on?

LPG / propane expands when it turns from liquid to gas, and this process absorbs heat energy from the air, via the cylinder. This causes cooling and often condensation of water vapor on the tank.

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

In which state is the LPG in the cylinder of the cooking stove in India?

Naturally,it should be in a gaseous state since its gas.But to get it in large quantities,it must be compressed at a pressure that will change its state to liquid.

Why LPG is preferred over petrol and diesel for household cooking purpose?

that is because................. use your own brain

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

What is the weight of LPG per liter?

0.54 kg / litre

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

How gas is filled in lpg cylinder?

The gas is liquified under pressure and it it takes the entire avalaible place inside the cylinder. thus gas is filled in a cylinder

What is the pipe line colour coding of LPG liquid line?

it must be golden yellow with blue band

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

How is natural gas better than LPG?

Without getting into the chemistry and physics of the two different types of gases, natural gas has a higher btu output than liquid propane gas. In other words, higher available energy output/more energy efficient.

MMM wrong!!! Propane provides more energy per unit volume than does natural gas. Heat is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units. Propane provides about 2500 BTUs for the same volume of natural gas that only gives 1000 BTUs. However, natural gas can be less expensive at up to one-sixth the cost of propane

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

How many liters LPG in 1 m3?

1 m3 = 1000 litres, whether of LPG or of water.

Why oxygen and LPG tank often sealed with thick steel and not a plastic nor wood?

Oxygen and LPG are both flammable. Steel is not. Therefore it is best that oxygen and LPG are not sealed with plastic or wood.
