LPG or Liquefied Petroleum Gas.
LPG is a hydrocarbon mixture in either liquid or gaseous state where the main components consists of
- propane - C3H8
- propylene (propene) - C3H6
- isobutane - C4H10
- n-butane - C4H10
- butylene (butene) - C4H8
Liquefied Petroleum gas - LPG - is gaseous under normal atmospheric conditions, but liquefied by cooling and/or compression.
LPG is commonly used as an industrial fuel for domestic and commercial purposes like town gas and autogas. LPG is also used as feedstock in chemicals plant processes.
Boiler house topics, fuels like oil, gas, coal, wood - chimneys, safety valves, tanks - combustion efficiency.
Air, LNG, LPG and other common gas properties, pipeline capacities, sizing of relief valves.
High temperatures and danger of impeller cavitation is the major challenge for condensate pumping in steam systems.
Gross heat and net heat values for gases like hydrogen, methane and more.
Boiling temperatures for common liquids and gases - acetone, butane, propane and more.
LNG or Liquefied Natural Gas.
Resistance and pressure loss in liquid LPG pipes.
Required capacities of relief valves on LPG vaporizers and tanks.
Latent heat with vaporized propane.
Energy content and specific gravity of propane air mixtures.
Evaporation pressure of propane butane mixture vs. temperature.
