LPG can be transported and stored. Meaning it can be used in areas where piped natural gas isn’t available. For the home, it can power heating, cooking, and hot water. For businesses, however, LPG can be used to fuel forklift engines or even industrial boilers.
LPG is fuel and energy. LPG is also important in industrial, commercial, agricultural, horticultural, and manufacturing applications. While at home, it can provide you with heating, hot water, and power to cook food. And it can even fuel your car!
Checking the level of remaining gas, in a gas bottle, is an easy process
To make sense, it helps to first explain how LPG works. LPG is stored under pressure, as a liquid, in a gas bottle. It turns back into a gas by ‘boiling’ into gas vapour. This happens at a very low below zero temperature. To boil, the liquid LPG draws heat from the steel walls of the gas bottle. This, in turn, makes the gas bottle feel colder than the ambient temperature. The gas bottle gets even colder when you are actually using the gas. Under the right conditions, when you are using gas very rapidly, ice can even form on the gas bottle!
So, we use this to tell how much gas is left in a gas bottle. How? Well, we pour hot water down the side of the gas bottle to heat the steel. The steel above the level of the gas will retain the heat longer than the steel below the level of the gas. This makes it feel warmer above and cooler below the gas level. The point at which you feel the temperature change is the level of the gas inside the bottle.
Yes, you can. You can also swap vice versa.
- Keep the doors and windows of your kitchen open for proper ventilation.
- Do not place flammable or plastic items near the flame.
- Never leave your cooking unattended.
- Wear clothes that do not catch fire easily.
