A Recycled product
LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons, produced from natural gas and oil extraction (66%) and from oil refining (34%). As an associated gas, it is automatically generated during the production of methane and during the refining process itself. If LPG wasn’t captured at this point, it would have to be destroyed through flaring or venting, an unacceptable waste of an immediately available and exceptional energy source.
Where can it be used?
One of LPG’s greatest strengths is its versatility, with over 1000 different uses: in the home for heating and real flame cooking; in the garden for barbecues; in your vehicle to lower your transport costs; commercially in forklift trucks, farming, industrial heating, catering and caravan parks to name but a few.
Propane & Butane – What’s the difference?
LPG exists in two forms: Propane and Butane. The difference in their properties means that they are particularly suited to specific uses. Propane’s lower boiling point suits outdoor storage and is primarily used for central heating, cooking and numerous commercial applications. Butane, which doesn’t work in colder conditions, is best used indoors and is perfect for powering indoor portable heaters.
Cylinder Sizes and Uses.
In order to ensure the best results and the most economical approach it’s important that you use the correct cylinder type.
If you’ve got a gas powered Barbecue (BBQ) or patio heater in your garden then the 11kg leisure LPG cylinder is the perfect size.
We stock a range of mobile heaters that can be used within the home or for offices etc. These appliances run on 13kg and 7kg Butane cylinders.
If you have a touring caravan then small, portable, cylinders are required; 6kg propane cylinders are ideal for this purpose.
The Industrial segment is particularly diverse and requirements vary considerably. A variety of cylinders can be utilised in this area, such as 6kg, 11kg, 19kg and 47 kg propane.
