01What are the advantages of LPG?

The useful characteristics of LPG fired equipment is summarised below:

»
Portability: Cylinders can be transported easily to the location or can be fixed to mobile equipment.
»
Own Storage: Alternate gas suppliers make use of piped delivery system where the customer is affected the moment supply fails. LPG stored in cylinders or bulk installations provide a greater degree of product security.
»
Wide Turn Down: By this is meant the range of gas flow from maximum to minimum for a particular burner. Burners can be designed to operate over wide range.
»
Ease Of Control: Gaseous fuels are the easiest to control and are very quick in response i.e. you can light a fire within seconds of turning the burner knob on. Solid fuels are the slowest.
»
Small Flames: Many processes require a small flame, or a number of small flames rather than a big one. LPG is a good fuel for such applications. 
» Self-Pressurizing: LPG is stored under moderate pressure and therefore no pumps or gravity system is needed to get the fuel to the burner. Simple LPG burners are quite independent of electrical supply.
»
Consistent Quality: LPG as all petroleum fuels is subject to stringent quality controls and hence it is possible to maintain consistent quality of the product.
»
Clean Combustion: LPG is a high-grade fuel with negligible impurities producing ean sulphur -free combustion gases. This can be important for many processes especially where the gases come into contact with the products.
»
Little Maintenance: Many LPG burners are very simple and require little aintenance. The clean combustion gases ensure long life even for the more complex burners.

02Are you paying for an underweight cylinder?
»
Do you know that a domestic cooking gas cylinder contains 14.2 Kg (plus or minus 150 gm) of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)?
»
Now add to that the weight of the empty cylinder (already marked on its body). And you arrive at the correct weight of a filled cooking gas cylinder. Anything less and you are not getting your due.
»
Checks at our end. At BPCL, we have built in a series of checks in the system to ensure that the LPG that reaches you is of the correct weight.
»
First, at our LPG Bottling Plants, the cylinders are filled through a preset weighing mechanism. They are then check-weighed for the correct fill on a check scale.
»
Next, they are fitted with leak-tight safety caps and pilfer-proof seals before they move out of the plant.
»
Finally, all our LPG distributors are instructed to carry out 100% weighing checks to ensure that each and every cylinder is of the correct weight.
»
What should you do? In spite of all there tests, you may still suspect that you are paying for an under weight cylinder, at the time of taking delivery. To put your doubts to rest, all you need to do is to call up your distributor. He will collect your cylinder and get it weighed at his godown, in your presence. And if your cylinder is indeed underweight, we will replace it immediately. At no extra charge.
