  • Monitoring Leak Rates During LPG Bottling

    LPG usually consists of butane, propane or a mixture of these gases, though the definition is country-dependent. It is produced from natural gas processing and oil refining, where it is separated via either refrigeration or distillation before being pressurised, liquefied and stored in cylinders under pressure so that it remains in its liquid form, and can be subsequently used as a gas or liquid. ...
