LP Gas Products – Getting to Know Propane

 

The fuel of choice for heating, cooking and more, these liquid propane products will help you take full advantage of this efficient and clean burning gas. Here you'll find grills, hoses, fittings, tanks, regulators, mounts and everything else you need to get your propane system up and running.

 

Technically, LPG is liquefied petroleum gas. However, it is called by many names in many countries: LP gas, LPG, natural gas liquid, NGL, natural gasoline, and gas condensate among others. It actually is any of the several liquid mixtures of the volatile hydrocarbons propane.

 

LP gas is any of the many liquid mixes of the volatile hydrocarbons called propane, propene, butane and butane. One of its early uses (in 1860) is being used as a portable fuel source. Its production and consumption have greatly expanded since then.

 

These days, it also contains ethane, ethylene, mercaptan and an odorant (a type of smell) added for safety precaution. It had reached domestic consumer in cylinders. The largest part of the gas is used in central heating systems, and next to it would be the use as raw material in chemical plants.

 

Cooking

 

LPG is now commonly used as fuel for cooking, in barbecue grills, gas cooktops and ovens, fuel and for gas fireplaces. Likewise, it is used as gas in portable heaters.  

 

It is used as water heaters in Europe. The other use is also as engine fuels and for back up generators. (LPG can be stored indefinitely without degradation, unlike diesel.)

 

Vehicle fuel

 

In Canada and the US, the use of LP gas system in recreational vehicles is popular and common. Treated properly and maintained in good condition, this energy source is quite safe. Accidents happen due frequently to misuse more than anything else.

 

If you are considering any RV purchase, new or second hand from any country you’re in. getting a gas certificate is certainly recommended.

 

Gas installations

 

There are several official methods in gas installations like in RV gas systems and in cooking equipments. Each one works in different guidelines specific to that user (cars/cookers/cylinders/other systems.

 

In appliances, there is a slight difference in LP Gas system 2. Cookers/hobs are needed to be kept clean with particular focus to the burners. The fridges need to have all the ventilation hatches kept clean to work more efficiently. Water heaters need little attention where the gas anodes are required to be replaced regularly.

 

LP Gas system 3 / 4

 

Since the work on an RV gas system is legally off limits to budding handymen, it is covered with a different standard in the storage and handling of the LP gas. Handymen can do only the checking for leaks using soap water and connecting and disconnecting gas cylinders.

 

The main work is to keep the LP gas system clean and checking for damages, especially underneath the van where the gas lines might be prone to stone damage.

 

There is emphasis too on the ventilation holes in the gas cylinder bin (if there is one). The vent is often fitted to the lower door are. An external gas bayonet connection (under the van) should always be checked before use for any mud or dirt that affects a good connection.

 

In LP Gas system 5, the access to cylinder bins in van-based motor homes is restricted. A licensed person is required to do all the installation and remedial work on the system.
