Work With LPG

LPG is an important energy source for many of Europe's industries

 

LPG is used extensively in both industry and agriculture throughout Europe. With an almost limitless number of applications, LPG is one of Europe's most versatile energy sources.

Industrial Applications

cuttingLPG is widely used for many industrial applications such as space and process heating (including metal high temperature treatment), oxy-propane cutting, welding, powering machinery, producing food, water heating, de-frosting, shrink-wrapping, powering industrial ovens, kilns or furnaces, or powering fork-lift trucks in and outside warehouses.

 

Characterized by highly controllable temperatures, negligible NOx, Sox and particulate matter emissions, and its associated benefits in terms of protecting human health, LPG is an efficient, effective and environmentally friendly energy source for industry.

Civil engineering is another domain in which LPG is widely used. Specific applications include heating bitumen, repairing and laying roads, illuminating road signs and floodlighting. Building contractors use LPG in industrial building driers and space heaters. Other uses include plumbing, roofing, welding, smelting, and brick manufacturing. Manufacturers of aerosol products require pure field-grade propane for propelling household products (cosmetics, air fresheners, insecticides, etc)

With its particular series of advantages, LPG plays an important role in European industry. The applications really are limitless.

Agricultural Applications

FarmingFarmers across Europe rely on LPG to keep them growing. No other fuel can offer a comparable combination of portability, accessibility and convenience of use.

As a clean fuel, LPG allows farmers to meet the challenge of staying competitive in the modern agricultural environment, all while respecting the value of nature and maintaining a commitment to sustainable development.

Whether used for livestock-rearing and crop-drying applications or simply for fuelling agricultural machinery, LPG is an essential tool for the contemporary European farmer.

Specific examples of LPG’s contribution on the farm include:

Pig & Chick Rearing
The precision control that LPG provides ensures that animals can be raised in the comfort they require to grow and stay healthy. Crucially, it also makes dangers such as power cuts and voltage reductions a thing of the past. Such advantages are of considerable importance, not only because they help protect animal welfare but because they save money, avoid waste enhancing a farm’s competitiveness.

Grain and fruit drying:
LPG facilitates safer and more effective drying of crops such as fruit and grain, allowing the farmer to preserve the quality of their crops and to meet specific market specifications for moisture content. It also enhances efficiency since 90% of the propane used is converted to energy, meaning less waste and lower costs.

Thermal desiccation:
As an effective substitute for the harmful chemicals sometimes used for weeding, LPG plays an important role in preserving the quality of soil and water sources. This is a further demonstration of LPG’s capacity to meet the needs of farmers.

Whatever the application, LPG is an immediately available alternative, ready to power clean, modern and efficient agriculture all across Europe.
