Precaution while using lpg

What is LPG
1. The basic idea of LPG is simple. If youre far from a gas main (the ordinary system of natural gas supplied to buildings through a network of pipes), simply get your gas from a large fixed tank or a portable canister or bottle. As its name suggests, LPG is a fossil fuel closely linked to oil. About two thirds of the LPG people use is extracted directly from the Earth in the same way as ordinary natural gas. The rest is manufactured indirectly from petroleum (crude oil) drilled from the Earth in wells in the usual way. .....
Propane and butane
2. LPG is a mixture of two flammable but nontoxic gases called propane and butane. Both of these are hydrocarbons (their molecules are made from different combinations of hydrogen and carbon atoms): propane molecules (C3H8) have eight hydrogen atoms attached to three carbon atoms, while butane molecules (C4H10) have ten hydrogen atoms bonded to four carbon atoms. LPG sometimes contains a variation of butane called isobutane, which has the same component atoms (four carbons and ten hydrogens) connected together in a slightly different way. .....
Using LPG
3. Roughly half the LPG people use is consumed in homes for heating and cooking (in other words, instead of piped natural gas). Typically, this kind of LPG is delivered by road to a large tank placed safely outside a home or other building (for safety reasons). Its also possible to buy reusable gas canisters (from such companies as Calor in the UK) for powering standalone stoves, heaters, barbecues, and outdoor patio heaters (now frowned upon because of the energy they waste to the open air). Tiny LPG canisters are also widely used in portable haircare appliances, such as haircurling tongs. .....
What are the pros
4. The main reason for converting to LPG is its superb portability and convenience: it can be used in remote places where ordinary gas supplies are unavailable. That doesnt just mean rural homes: large LPG canisters are extremely useful in disasters and emergencies where supplies of electricity and gas have either been interrupted or never existed in the first place. Although LPG is a fossil fuel, its relatively clean compared to such things as coal and oil (it makes less air pollution .....
What are the cons
5. The two big disadvantages of LPG are safety and cost. Keeping a gas pressurized at 274 times less space than it would normally occupy requires extremely sturdy metal tanks and its hardly surprising that LPG containers do occasionally explode. Explosions of gas canisters on building sites are far from uncommon, for example. In theory, since LPG is highly flammable, transporting it by road and storing it in large tanks in populated areas should be much more dangerous than piping natural gas underground. Having said that, LPG suppliers go to great lengths to ensure safety and LPG is generally recognized as being just as safe, allround, as an ordinary natural gas supply. Cost is another big drawback: LPG is typically several times more expensive than ordinary natural gas. But if you cant get piped gas, and LPG is your only option, maybe thats not really such an issue. .....
Check the leaking gas
6. Before igniting the gas, we should make sure that there is no foul smell of the leaking gas. If there is foul smell of gas, then the doors and windows should be opened at once to allow the gas to escape. The gas cylinder, rubber tubing and gas stove should then be properly checked to detect the cause of gas leakage. Preferably a mechanic should be called to set right the defect. The gas should be used only after the defect has been rectified. Never use a leaking gas cylinder. .....
We should not use any open flames
7. We should not use any open flames like a kerosene stove or electric heater near the gas cylinder. Before igniting the gas, we should make sure that there is no foul smell of the leaking gas. If there is foul smell of gas, then the doors and windows should be opened at once to allow the gas to escape. The gas cylinder, rubber tubing and gas stove should then be properly checked to detect the cause of gas leakage. .....
Checked regularly the rubber pipe
8. The rubber pipe connecting the gas cylinder to gas stove should be checked regularly for any wear and tear. Preferably a mechanic should be called to set right the defect. The gas should be used only after the defect has been rectified. Never use a leaking gas cylinder. We should not use any open flames like a kerosene stove or electric heater near the gas cylinder. .....
Close the cylinder value
9. Close the cylinder value when the gas stove is not in use. The rubber pipe connecting the gas cylinder to gas stove should be checked regularly for any wear and tear. The gas cylinder should be handled with care to avoid any damage to the cylinder valve. While lighting the gas stove, first open the cylinder (regulator) valve and then turn the knob of the gas stove. .....
Should not keep any hot flames
10. We should not keep any hot flames like kerosene lamp, kerosene stove or electric heater near the gas cylinder. The gas agency should be informed in case of a leaking gas cylinder and it should be replaced at the earliest. Before lighting a matchstick, we should make sure that there is no foul smell of the leaking gas in the kitchen, near the as cylinder or gas stove. .....
Store your LPG cylinders
11. Store your LPG cylinders and tanks in places which have a flat surface. They should be kept away from direct heat sources. The LPG storage area or cylinders should also be away from direct sunlight, hail, rain, heat as well as dust. We should not keep any hot flames like kerosene lamp, kerosene stove or electric heater near the gas cylinder. The gas agency should be informed in case of a leaking gas cylinder and it should be replaced at the earliest. .....
Cylinders should never be placed in closed areas
12. Cylinders should never be placed in closed areas. At the same time, the cooking stoves should also be kept a little away from the cylinders and not immediately above it. In case there is a suspected LPG leak, all the doors and windows should be opened in . The rubber pipe connecting the gas cylinder to gas stove should be checked periodically for any wear and tear. .....
Safety Tips
13. LPG is being used in almost all sectors, domestic commercial and industrial. It has proved itself to be one of the most costeffective, less hazardous, environmentfriendly fuels. Still due to some of its properties, LPG uses have been marred by accidents, which cannot be termed as sporadic incidents. LPG has to be used in accordance with certain safety measures. Incorrect use of LPG can result in explosions, fires, loss of property and most importantly, loss of lives. Do not neglect issues like leaking gas cylinders or tubes, damaged regulators, incorrect method of storage of LPG cylinders, etc. .....
Safety Tips for Home
14. LPG is a popular and efficient energy source used in homes for cooking. It is imperative that you take good care and use it safely and responsibly. LPG Cylinders are strong and cannot be damaged easily. However leaks can occur from cylinder, valves and pipe connections if it is not kept in good condition or if considerable care is not taken while replacing them. .....
While receiving cylinders
15. Check the cylinder has been delivered with the company seal and safety cap intact If you are not sure about usage, please ask the delivery person for a demonstration Cylinders must be installed at ground level on a level surface. Before lighting a match stick we should make sure that there is no foul smell of the leaking gas in the kitchen, near the gas cylinder or gas stove. If we smell gas leakage on entering the kitchen, then the door and windows should be opened at once to allow the gas to escape. This is because, though LPG is not a poisonous gas, but when inhaled in large quantities, it is quite harmful and can even cause death. .....
Before Usage
16. Check to see that rubber .....
After Usage
17. Close the regulator knob to .....
Safety when you smell gas
18. If you smell gas in the street or on your property before or including the meter, you should call your natural gas distribution company to locate and repair the leak. If however, you believe the leak to be after the meter on a section of pipe work connecting your appliances, or on the appliance itself, you can contact any licensed gasfitter to rectify the problem. Remember, any person undertaking work involving gas must be appropriately licensed. .....
Tips to avoid running out of gas
19. If you use LPG in your home or business, youll know firsthand how important it is to keep your gas topped up. Heres a handy guide to managing your LPG supply to prevent outofgas experiences and keep those cold showers at bay. Today we find that LPG is being used in almost all sectors, domestic commercial and industrial. It has proved itself to be one of the most costeffective, less hazardous, environmentfriendly fuels. Still due to some of its properties, LPG uses have been marred by accidents, which cannot be termed as sporadic incidents. LPG has to be used in accordance with certain safety measures. Incorrect use of LPG can result in explosions, fires, loss of property and most importantly, loss of lives. Do not neglect issues like leaking gas cylinders or tubes, damaged regulators, incorrect method of storage of LPG cylinders, etc. .....
Exchange cylinders
20. The most common type of installation is exchange cylinders. This is where two LPG cylinders are connected by a changeover lever. When one cylinder becomes empty, you switch the lever over to the full one. If you have exchange cylinders, the best way to avoid running out of gas is to place an order for a replacement cylinder as soon as one runs out. If there are other people at home or work that use the changeover lever, get them to tell you each time so you can order straight away. .....
In situ or tankerfill supply
21. If you use a lot of LPG, you probably have large cylinders or even tanks on your property. This is known as in situ or tankerfill supply and instead of needing to order, your gas will be delivered on a regular basis from your local terminal.Because your LPG is delivered based on a schedule that suits your typical usage, its important to let us know as soon as possible if youre running low or using more LPG than usual. This allows an LPG tanker to get to your property sooner to refill your gas and if required, the frequency of your regular gas deliveries can be increased. .....
Single cylinder
22. Finally, if you dont use a lot of LPG, you may only have one cylinder on your property. This is common with residential customers who only use gas for cooking or who live in warmer climates like Queensland.If there is only one cylinder on your property, we recommend paying special attention to your usage by marking the dates of your LPG orders on a calendar so you can work out when your next order will fall due. Its also a good idea to give us a call to check delivery time frames before placing your order. .....
Check the level of gas in your cylinders
23. If you use LPG cylinders, you can check how much gas is left by using the hot water test. Carefully pour hot water down the side of the cylinder and then, after a few moments, run your hand down it. It will feel cool to the touch at the level of the gas. Of course, exercise caution when handling the hot water.Larger tanks will have a gauge which measures how much gas is left. .....
Be conscious of house guests and new appliances
24. While utilityusing visitors and shiny new gas appliances are two of our favourite things, they may not be yours if they run you out of gas! Be conscious that youll go through LPG faster with the additional usage. Safety and well being of people is of utmost concern at all Jyothi Gas business units. Our safety view encompasses our own assets and people, as well as those of our customers, partners and the general public. .....
Plan to order earlier in winter
25. When the cold sets in and your gas heater comes on, youll go through LPG much quicker. Even if you dont have gas heating, your local terminal will be much busier than in the warmer months and its a wise idea to leave plenty of time for delivery. The empty cylinders must be stored in a cool and well ventilated place with safety cap put on. .....
Ask about delivery arrangements in your area
26. Delivery days vary from location to location. This is because most LPG suppliers plan their delivery runs to provide all their customers with regular opportunities to receive gas. This may mean deliveries in your area happen daily, twiceweekly, on the same day each week, or as required depending on the orders received. When you first set up an account with us or next time youre talking to our LPG experts, its a good idea to learn when deliveries usually occur in your neighbourhood. That way youll have a guide to how far in advance you need to place your orders. .....
Allow clear access to your property
27. If we cant get access to your property, we may not be able to deliver your LPG. If there are any dogs, goats or crocodiles about (were looking at you, Darwin customers!) make sure theyre restrained and let us know in advance so we can make a note for any future deliveries.Gates should also be left unlocked, and anything blocking access to your LPG installation will need to be cleared. .....
Comparison with natural gas
28. LPG is composed primarily of propane and butane, while natural gas is composed of the lighter methane and ethane. LPG, vaporised and at atmospheric pressure, has a higher calorific value (94MJ/m3 equivalent to 26.1kWh/m3) than natural gas (methane) (38MJ/m3 equivalent to 10.6kWh/m3), which means that LPG cannot simply be substituted for natural gas. In order to allow the use of the same burner controls and to provide for similar combustion characteristics, LPG can be mixed with air to produce a synthetic natural gas (SNG) that can be easily substituted. LPG/air mixing ratios average 60/40, though this is widely variable based on the gases making up the LPG. The method for determining the mixing ratios is by calculating the Wobbe index of the mix. Gases having the same Wobbe index are held to be interchangeable. .....
Liquefied petroleum gas or liquid petroleum gas
29. Liquefied petroleum gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG or LP gas), also referred to as simply propane or butane, is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles.It is increasingly used as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant, replacing chlorofluorocarbons in an effort to reduce damage to the ozone layer. When specifically used as a vehicle fuel it is often referred to as autogas. .....
Adequate ventilation in the home
30. It is important that the home have proper ventilation when using LPG. This will forestall any breathing problems that may result from inhaling the gas. As such, homeowners must ensure that the doors are not sealed .....
Regular maintenance of LPG appliances
31. Being a highrisk energy form, all LPG appliances need regular maintenance to ensure that they remain in good condition. Regular servicing can help unearth any potential leakages or mishaps at the earliest opportunity. It provides homeowners with an ample opportunity to correct these errors before they mushroom into disaster. While servicing these appliances, it is wise to engage the services of an expert or contact a retailer for assistance. .....
Keep children away from all LPG appliances
32. It is responsibility of parents to ensure that their children do not operate any LPG appliance under any circumstance. These young ones are naturally curious; they might wish to explore how these appliances function. Their curiosity could prove costly to the house and its occupants. Parents should ensure that their children do not gain access to these LPG appliances because kids do not have the knowhow to operate these machines. .....
Separate LPG appliances from combustible materials
33. LPG appliances and combustible materials should not be in close proximity. As a safety measure, homeowners must keep their LPG appliances away from combustible components like furniture and curtains. This will reduce the chances of these materials catching fire and causing damage to other properties in the home. .....
Proper storage of LPG cylinders
34. LPG cylinders must always be stored in a safe place away from things that could trigger them to explode. Of equal importance is the need to use and store them in an upright position. This position is safe enough to ensure that no liquid seeps out of the cylinder. .....
Switch off the cylinder valve
35. After using an LPG appliance, it is advisable to close its cylinder valve. Those that have clipons should be turned off at their regulators. Switching off the cylinder valve is advisable especially in instances where the family is going away for a long time. Failure to do so could result in a leakage eventually culminating in disastrous results. In a world where efficient energy solutions are a major concern, LPG is established as an effective energy form. Their contribution to home heating and controlled cooking makes them popular among many households. These households should however prioritize their safety by using these LPG appliances in the right way. .....
Properties
36. LPG is a colourless liquid that evaporates into a gas. It has no smell, but does have an odour added to help detect leaks. It can burn or explode when it mixes with air in the right proportions and finds an ignition source. It is heavier than air. It can flow for long distances along the ground, and can collect in drains, gullies and cellars. LPG is supplied in pressurised cylinders to keep it liquefied. The cylinders are strong and not easily damaged, although the valve at the top can be vulnerable to impact. Leaks can occur from valves and pipe connections if the connections are not kept in good condition or if sufficient care is not taken when changing cylinders. .....
Basic safety rules
37. Ensure all fixed LPG installations are fitted and serviced by a licensed or registered gas fitter. The gasfitter is responsible for ensuring new or replacement appliances are connected, tested and adjusted properly. The gasfitter should explain appliance operating instructions to the consumer and provide them with a copy. Keep LPG appliances and fittings in first class condition. Have them regularly serviced. Check the appliance manual or contact the retailer to find out how often this is recommended. If any leak of gas is detected, refer to Emergency Procedures. If an appliance cannot burn its fuel efficiently (due to inadequate ventilation or a faulty or poorlymaintained appliance) it may produce carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas. While it is odourless it is accompanied by other emissions that may a produce a car exhaust smell and/or watery eyes. .....
LPG Cabinet Heater Safety
38. Have portable LPG cabinet heaters serviced regularly to ensure all parts are leak free and operating properly.Click here for a list of service agents. Keep a clear zone around the heater of at least 1 metre when in use and keep it away from combustible materials such as curtains and furniture. Keep children supervised at all times when in a room with an LPG cabinet heater. .....
Cylinder is kept upright
39. As long as the cylinder is kept upright any leaks will generally be of LPG vapour. If liquid LPG leaks it can cause cold burns to the skin and rapidly expand to produce a large volume of vapour. Check for any visible signs of leakage .....

LPG has the potential to create a fire or an explosion. Therefore, it is important that the properties and safe handling of LPG are understood and implemented in the domestic and commercial/industrial usages. If you smell or suspect a gas leak, extinguish all naked flames and avoid using any electrical switches or appliances. Use carbon monoxide (CO) alarm as one useful precaution to advance warning of CO in the property. A leak in the pipe can be stopped by closing the regulator on the cylinder, but do this only if you can approach the cylinders safely. Take precaution and be safe in using LPG Cylinder. .....
Before igniting the gas
46. Before igniting the gas, we should make sure that there is no foul smell of the leaking gas. If there is foul smell of gas, then the doors and windows should be opened at once to allow the gas to escape. The gas cylinder, rubber tubing and gas stove should then be properly checked to detect the cause of gas leakage. Preferably a mechanic should be called to set right the defect. The gas should be used only after the defect has been rectified. Never use a leaking gas cylinder. .....
How to handle LPG safely
47. Liquefied Petroleum gases are highly combustible and inflammable when comes in contact with the source of any ignition in air. Millions of people in the world are utilizing this LPG as the most convenient, economical and pollution free cooking purposes. But it requires some safe handling procedure to avoid any accident. LPG is stored in the high tensile steel container under high pressure but the high pressure gas may start leaking from any weak rubber pipe, joint or sealed connector provided in the LPG container. Therefore, awareness about some statutory warning and safety precautions can avert any accidental hazards while using this useful and popular cooking, industrial and automobile fuel. .....
