What is LP Gas?
LP Gas stands for liquified petroleum gas and in the UK is either propane or butane. It is produced as a bi -product of crude oil refinning or natural gas extraction.
Propane is used primarily for central heating, hot-water, gas-fires, convector heaters and, of course, for cooking. Gas is essential, if you want a living flame fire and LP Gas is ideal.
Butane is used mainly in cylinders for portable applications in mobile heaters in the home, and for leisure activities such as boats, caravans and barbecues. Butane cylinders are available from a vast network of retail
It is clean, efficient, secure and immediately available across a wide range of uses in the UK.
At a normal temperature, LP Gas is a gas. When subjected to modest pressure or cooling, it transforms into a liquid. As a liquid, it is easy to transport and store. Once it has been cooled or pressurised, LP Gas is usually stored in containers made of either steel or aluminium making its use very versatile.
The fact that it can be easily liquefied makes LP Gas a a highly versatile energy alternative and thanks to a wide variety of packaging and storage options, LP Gas has numerous fuelling applications.
