Basic Training Information for Liquid Petroleum Gas
Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG is a fuel which contains 90 percent propane and has no smell or color. It is derived from natural gas. LPG is extracted utilizing a process referred to as distilling.
LPG should be handled with care. Though it is usually considered safe, it can lead to a fire or explosion if the gas lines are not maintained or have not been correctly installed. Proper maintenance and installation guidelines should be followed for home appliances that use liquid petroleum gas.
To guarantee safe handling, personnel who work with liquid petroleum gas directly should undergo training. The refueling procedures and handling need to be carefully followed. Employees must also be taught how to recognize dangers such as loose fittings or damaged hoses, and how to test for potential leaks. Personal protective gear must always be worn when working with liquid petroleum gas.
Potentially, the liquid petroleum gas is volatile. The employees in charge of handling this gas have to be trained and prepared to respond to emergencies. Trainees would learn how to evacuate places at risk, how to control gas leaks and how to administer first aid.
Various Sizes of LP Gas Tanks
LPG tanks would range in size from small tanks the size of a knapsack all the way to big underground tanks. LPG is really handy for heating and cooking for both commercial and residential applications. Numerous lift truck models are powered by liquid petroleum gas. About 350,000 motor vehicles in the United States and 3.5 million vehicles globally utilize LPG tanks.
The 33-gallon gas tank delivers fuel to commercial grade machinery. The empty tank weighs about 7 kilograms. When full, the tank can hold 14 kilograms of propane. It is big enough for industrial application, and is designed to fuel lift trucks with LPG engines. The tank is 71 centimeters long with a 30-centimeter diameter.
