The Five Prime Reasons why LPG is the Most Preferred Fuel for Industries

why LPG should be used as industrial fuel

Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) has long been recognised as an efficient and reliable energy source estimated to be used by millions of people worldwide. LPG is exceptionally versatile, providing the utmost convenience to homes and businesses. LPG is very portable and it can be stored and transported in tankers as a liquid and can be used as a gas when needed. LPG has high purity for superior vaporisation and clean burning industriallyIndustrial LPG covers a wide range of applications and machinery, from low-cost economy models to deluxe units that combine every convenience and energy-saving features. 

 

Here are the five prime reasons why LPG is the most preferred fuel for Industrial usage: 

 

1. LPG- The cleaner fuel:

Compared to other fuels, LPG emits lesser harmful chemicals, making it a much cleaner fuel. Due to its complete combustion, LPG emits lesser Cogiving access to cleaner workstations in the industries, thereby reducing the health issues of the workers and employees. 

LPG is highly Eco-friendly and does not emit harmful gases on burning. It is better for health as there are no harmful gas emissions.

2. No adulteration, only with LPG:

Could LPG be diluted with an adulterant? An indefinite possibility! Since LPG is transported through sealed cylinders directly from the filling plants, there is no scope for spilling, adulterating, or settling impurities.

LPG as an industrial gas contributes to minimal contamination and metal loss. There is no spillage as it vaporises at atmospheric temperature and pressure.

3. LPG provides precise temperature control:

LPG provides even heat and immediate heat for all industrial purposes. LPG is preferable as it is highly precise to control temperature. The heat is much more controllable with LPG, and the heat change is direct, immaculate, and accurate.

  • i) Longer crucible life due to uniform and even heating

  • ii) Precise temperature control provides low rejection rates

  • iii) Instantly controllable flame temperature

  • iv) Remarkably high efficiency with the direct firing system

4. LPG has an impressive calorific value:

LPG has a high calorific value of 10,900 Kcal/Kg resulting in high-efficiency heat output. LPG is safe fuel and ignites only within the specified LPG- Air ratio of 2% to 9%.LPG has an all-time high calorific value while compared with Liquid fuels.

5. Lower maintenance costs only with LPG:

Liquid fuels damage the machine parts majorly through oxidation and release of Sulphur dioxide. In the long run, LPG will prove efficient for machine maintenance. Also, it does not affect the product during applications where the rejection rate tends to be higher.

Since LPG leads to clean burning, there is no soot, and the burners have a longer life - so the maintenance is low.

 

The other advantages of LPG for industrial use over other Energy Sources: 

 

  • i) LPG is easy to transport

  • ii) It has a higher heating value

  • iii) LPG does not contain sulphur, so it burns a lot cleaner than other energy resources 

  • iv) Liquid Petroleum Gas burns consistently, making it more reliable than other forms of energy.

  • v) LPG is more environmentally friendly than other sources of energy.

  • vi) Colourless and odourless at room temperature, it is non-toxic and non-corrosive and does not produce harmful emissions.
