LPG gas

Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) is a widely used fuel gas

Our high-quality LPG gas can be used in a wide variety of commercial and domestic applications. Owing to the fact it is a cleaner burning and more economical fuel than petrol, liquid petroleum gas is a popular choice as fuel for forklift trucks across Australia and New Zealand, and as a BBQ gas in homes all over the country. It is also commonly used in shrink wrapping, soldering, flame cutting and (both industrial and domestic) heating applications.

We sell LPG gas in 4 different cylinder sizes – 9 KG, 15 KG, 18 KG and 45 KG – so whether you run a company that gets through a large volume of this fuel gas on a weekly basis or you only need a small cylinder for occasional barbeques at home, there’s a size in our range that will meet your needs perfectly. If you would like us to help you select the best size for your requirements, please feel free to contact us.

  • How is LPG gas stored?

    LPG gas bottles and cylinders should be stored upright, in a well ventilated location that is well away from any potential sources of heat or ignition. As a flammable gas, it is important to take sensible precautions when storing LPG gas in your home or commercial premises.

  • How much is LPG gas?

    For up-to-date prices on specific cylinder sizes and order quantities, please get in touch with us by phone, email or fax. If you are planning to order from a local distributor, you can, of course, call and speak to them instead.

  • How long does a cylinder tank of LPG last?

    How long a single tank of LPG lasts is dependent on what type of equipment you are using it to power and how often that equipment is used. If, for example, you use it to power a medium-sized BBQ grill, you can expect around 18-20 hours of grilling from a 9 KG gas cylinder.

  • What is LPG gas?

    LPG gas in Australia and New Zealand is primarily propane, but may also contain a mixture of butane, isobutane and ethane.

  • Can LPG be used for gas cutting?

    In common with acetylene, LPG can be used for gas cutting but it’s important to note that with liquified petroleum gas, it is the outer cone of the flame that is the hottest. This is in contrast to an acetylene flame, in which the majority of the heat is located in the inner cone. With this in mind, you should hold an LPG flame further away from the metal surface.

  • How to check LPG gas bottle level?

    You can either weigh your bottle (and subtract the dry weight) or pour water down the outside and feel where it gets cold after a few seconds. This will indicate the current gas level.
