Physical properties of lpg

Liquefied petroleum gas is mainly composed of propane, butane and a small amount of methane, ethane, propylene, butene and raffinate. Liquefied petroleum gas has the following characteristics:

1. Volatility: Liquefied petroleum gas absorbs heat at normal temperature and pressure and immediately volatilizes into a gas. The volume suddenly expands by about 250 to 300 times and spreads rapidly.

2. Flammability and explosiveness: LPG has a low flash point and is highly dangerous. After contacting with air, LPG can be ignited by tiny sparks.

3. Corrosivity: liquefied petroleum gas can soften rubber and dissolve paint and grease.

4. Toxicity: Prolonged exposure to high-concentration liquefied petroleum gas will have adverse effects on the nervous system; when the concentration of liquefied petroleum gas in the air exceeds 10%, it will cause suffocation.

Then how can we storage this dangerous gas?

At this time, we need to use liquefied petroleum gas cylinders, which can store liquefied petroleum gas well and prevent people from directly contacting the gas.
