What is LPG?
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a colourless odourless liquid which readily evaporates into a
gas. Normally an odourant has been added to it to help detect leaks.
LPG (either Butane or Propane), is generally stored and distributed as a liquid and it is widely
used for process and space heating, cooking and automotive propulsion. . It is classified as
LPG is non-corrosive but can dissolve lubricants, certain plastics or synthetic rubbers.
What is inside LPG cylinder?
LPG is the abbreviation or short form for liquefied petroleum gas. Normally, the
gas is stored in liquid form under pressure in a steel container, cylinder or tank.
The pressure inside the container will depend on the type of LPG (commercial butane
and propane mix or commercial propane) and the outside temperature. The two are
distinguishable from the cylinder. Commercial LPG is normally supplied in our grey
cylinders be the gas distributors whilst Propane Cylinders have a distinguishing red
paint on the top of the cylinder
What are the dangers of LPG?
LPG may leak as a gas or a liquid. If the liquid leaks it will quickly evaporate and form a
relatively large cloud of gas which will drop to the ground, as it is heavier than air. LPG vapours
can run for long distances along the ground and can collect in drains or basements. When the
gas meets a source of ignition it can burn or explode.
Cylinders can explode if involved in a fire.
LPG can cause cold burns to the skin and it can act as an asphyxiant at high concentrations.
What to do in the event of a gas leak?
In the event that a small of LPG is noted indoor. EXTINGUISH ALL FLAMES immediately.
Close all the gas appliances and cylinders from the regulator. Close the regulator but do not
remove it from the gas cylinder
For indoor leaks, to disperse the gas, open all windows and doors to the outside to ventilate
the gas leak until the smell of LPG is removed. If the source of the gas leak cannot be
determined and the gas smell persist call 112 for emergency services.
Avoid sources of ignition - no smoking, do not turn electrical switches on or off. For large
outdoor leaks (i.e. where there is a smell of gas more than a few meters from the source),
keep people, vehicles and ignition sources away.
Is inhaling LPG dangerous?
Inhaling LPG. Generally speaking inhaling LPG is small quantities is not dangerous
and does not have any long term effects on the body. This does NOT mean that
LPG is a poisonous gas. In other words, symptoms of exposure are directly related
to displacement of oxygen from air, not from any toxicity. Low vapour concentrations
may cause nausea, dizziness, headaches and drowsiness
