What is GPL?Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is one of the most common alternative sources of energy in the world, both domestic and industrial. It is produced from the associated gas oil which are pure gases or special mixtures which can be used for cooking, heating buildings, the manufacture of petrochemicals, or as fuel.
LPG is also currently one of the most effective ways to reduce carbon emissions from your installation, and also to reduce the dependence of households on charcoal and firewood which are still some of the biggest sources of harmful carbon emissions and greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere.
Liquefied petroleum Gas, or LPG, represents a simple and cost-effective alternative to electricity and charcoal. In many African countries, households, industrial plants and even mining operations have opted for LPG, simply because of its efficiency as a source of fuel energy.
Compared to other sources of energy, LPG is:Multi-purpose: can be used for heating, cooking, refrigerating, such as a motor fuel
Clean: it has very reduced carbon emissions; its appliancess require less maintenance
Powerful and safe: it generates heat that is instantly available and easily controlled.
Low cost: it is cheaper than solid fuels, as it can be controlled and its heat is effective for the purpose.
Portable: LPG cylinders can be transported from one point to another without any complications.
LPG, 50% heavier than air, tends to sink to the ground and can flow long distances on the ground and can collect in drains and gullies.
LPG is odorless and a perfume called Mercaptan is added to detect leaks.
When mixed with air, can burn or explode when it meets an ignition source.
Latent heat of vaporization is required to convert the liquid to gas. As the liquid boils, it needs to take heat energy from itself and that of its surroundings; this makes the container cold to the touch. In the case of a huge gas emission, frost may occur.
The pressure within the reservoir increases with the gas temperature. Therefore, if the temperature around the cylinder increases, the pressure within the reservoir increases as the liquid expands.
Benefits of LPGThe main advantages of the use of LPG are:
It gives you an instant cooking flame and can also produce a flash light.
It is easy to control: The blue flame is visible and its size is easily controlled over a wide area so that the necessary heating rate can be obtained.
It is used in many different sectors, domestic, commercial, industrial, agricultural and automobile.
It is non-toxic and safe to use.
It burns cleanly and produces no soot, smoke or smell during combustion, thereby leaving your kitchen clean.
It is pure and very consistent in terms of quality.
It adds you more comfort, because cooking is faster and the kitchen is not overheated as with other fuels such as wood or charcoal.
It is always available.
It is compatible with many different appliances and easy to maintain.
Due to its nature (portability, controllability, reliability, cleanliness, safety) LPG is used as an alternative fuel to electricity, kerosene and wood / solid fuels. Its uses are characterized in the domestic use / residential, agricultural, commercial, mining and industrial uses.
LPG is used in many commercial applications and has proven to be ideal and economical for cooking and heating equipment, such as cooling and boiler space appliances. LPG offers economic and environmental benefits compared to the use of solid fuels, oils, firewood or electricity. For commercial use, LPG is supplied in cylinders (12.5 kg, 25 kg or 45 kg) or in tanks. Tanks can be installed either above or below ground.
