What is Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG),supply, process, size, rate, uses, advantages, storage in Malaysia

LPG is produced from oil refining process or extract from natural gas production. It transport trough LPG tanker to the customer. LPG is considering as efficient and innovative energy benefit to the customer, industry and environment. LPG is used as a fuel in a range of applications including in heating and cooking appliances, industrial applications, in vehicles and as a propellant and refrigerant. LPG can be obtained primarily as propane, butane or a mixture of the two.

How is LPG gas supplied?

LPG either comes directly from gas wells or is a by-product of refining crude oil. Subsequently, it is delivered from supply points in a liquefied form to primary bulk storage facilities, where it is stored under refrigeration or pressurization.

For industrial user as option to natural gas pipeline or LPG supply. This is a new model of energy supply in the market which contribute the cost saving especially for major gas user. This usually happen for big industries which located far away from available natural gas pipeline. The storage facilities at client’s site can be arranged under the rental facilities. The storage will keep the molecule at lowest temperature (in liquid form) with appropriate design and construction of storage facilities. The method of storage is only differing while a piping to an enclosed structure in which material can be heated to very high temperatures still applying a normal natural gas piping system.

What size is the LPG tank in Malaysia?

  • 14kg Gas cylinders are the commonly used mostly in households.
  • A true kitchen essential for stove based workloads.

How much is 14 kg gas cylinder in Malaysia?

  • A 14kg cylinder from HaloGas will run you RM26. 50, but that’s without the delivery fee calculated based on your area.
  • On the other hand, pre-ordering with BeliGas costs RM25. 60, with no extra delivery fees.

Process of LPG Gas

  • LPG heating value control involves vaporizing LPG and mixing it with air to obtain a gas having the heat value of natural gas.
  • The GD402 can be used to measure the heating value indirectly through its correlation with the density and specific gravity of the mixed gas.
  • The relationship between specific gravity and the SNG mixture (synthetic natural gas) is well documented and can be used for process control.
  • The composition of different SNG’s (synthetic natural gas) can vary a lot the SNG (synthetic natural gas) density and specific gravity are measured in advance and the calculation parameter data of the analyser is set based on that to reduce the error due to composition variation.

What are the Advantages of LPG gas

  • It is easy to achieve the correct fuel to air mix ratio that allows the complete combustion of the product. This gives LPG its clean burning characteristics.
  • Both Propane and Butane are easily liquefied and stored in pressure containers. These properties make the fuel highly portable and therefore easily transported in cylinders or tanks.
  • LPG is a good alternative for petrol in spark ignition engines. Its clean burning properties, in a properly tuned engine, give reduced discharge emissions, extended lubricant and spark plug life.
  • LPG provides alternatives to fluorocarbons, which are known to cause deterioration of the earth’s ozone layer.
  • The clean burning properties and portability of LPG provide a substitute for traditional fuels such as wood, coal, and other organic matter.
  • It offers a solution to reducing deforestation and specific injury in the atmosphere caused by burning traditional fuels.

Uses of LPG gas

  • For the home for heating and cooking
  • For the vehicle to lower the transport costs
  • Commercially in front for lifting and carrying heavy loads trucks
  • Farming
  • Industrial heating
  • Catering

How LPG is stored?

LPG is allowing many functions to be stored and transported in different ways depending on its purpose of use. For central heating and larger commercial applications LPG will be stored in bulk storage vessels, either above or below the ground. Where less gas is required, or space is at a premium, there is a complete range of portable cylinder sizes available.
