- LPG is a liquid under pressure but a gas at ambient conditions.
- Vapor LPG is twice as heavy as air.
- Liquid LPG is half as heavy as water.
- LPG is colorless.
- LPG has a low boiling point of – 6°C
- LPG has a narrow flammability range between 1.8 to 9.5% in air.
- Flash point of LPG is -60°C.
- The approximate minimum ignition temperature of LPG is in the range 410°C to 580°C. LPG is odorless.
- Ethyl Mercaptan is added as an odorant to detect LPG in case of leaks. LPG is non-toxic.
- It is lightly anesthetic and can cause suffocation, if present in sufficiently high concentrations.
- Liquid LPG can cause severe cold burns to the skin owing to rapid vaporization and the consequent lowering of temperature

Application of LPG
RM LP Gas is a very versatile fuel which is widely used for varied applications, some of which are shown below :
LPG is widely-used in the Food Industry by Hotels, Restaurants, Bakeries, Canteens and Resorts etc. The low sulphur content and controllable temperature makes LPG
Glass & Ceramic
The manufacture of glass / ceramic products is complicated by a number of chemical reactions which occur during the process. The use of a clean fuel like LPG enhances the product quality and reduces technical problems related to the manufacturing process. LPG being a gaseous fuel gets easily regulated and compliments the heating process.
Glass melting is a huge operation and requires a massive quantity of heat. The use of cheaper fuels may lead to technical problems resulting in poor quality of products. LPG being a far superior fuel helps in eliminating such hurdles during the melting process.
LPG being a premium gaseous fuel makes it ideal for usage in the Cement manufacturing process.
The ease in regulation and soft quality of the LPG flame and low sulphur content are the key advantages both with regard to cement quality and kiln operability.
The metal industry is indeed one of the most important consumers of energy. The quality of LPG helps to improve the cost of operation and strikes an economic balance between fuel price and quality of the end product. The application is basically for cutting, heating and melting. Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals are frequently cast into shapes by melting and injection or pouring into suitable patterns and moulds. LPG in the instant case is an ideal fuel for meeting the requirement of temperature regulation and desired
LPG is the ideal fuel for production of food by Agriculture and Animal Husbandry. Drying of crops and Other Farm products requires clean and sulphur-free fuel to avoid any transfer of bad taste or smell to the dried crops. LPG in the farming industry can also be used for the following:
- Drying of Crops
- Cereal Drying
- Curing of Tobacco and Rubber
- Flame Cultivation
- Soil Conditioning
- Livestock Farming
Coal, Furnace Oil, and Natural Gas are the most economical fuels for this application. Coal and furnace oil are known to cause significant pollution to the environment. Natural gas, although a gaseous fuel, requires big investments in pipelines to bring the product to the factory. LPG’s balance of cleanliness and ease of use makes it a viable alternative.
Aerosol formulation is a blend of an active ingredient with a propellant. LPG, being environment-friendly, has replaced the Ozone-depleting CFC gases which were earlier used by the aerosol Industry.
Automotive LPG is a clean fuel with high octane that is aptly-suited for vehicles both in terms of emissions and cost of the fuel. The main advantage of using automotive LPG: it is free of lead, very low in sulphur, other metals, aromatics and other contaminants. Unlike Natural Gas, LPG is not a Green House Gas.
LPG can be used for singeing of cotton yarn, silk yarn, cloth and infrared drying of cloth.
Steam can be generated using LPG-fired Boilers.
