LPG fires are fuelled by liquefied petroleum gas, also referred to as simply propane of butane, are flammable mixtures of hydrocarbon gases used as fuel in heating appliance, cooking equipment, and vehicles. LPG fires are ideal for homes without a mains gas supply as LPG models run just as efficiently and effectively. Most models are now available as LPG versions so you can operate them from either bottled gas or from a larger tank in the garden, in most rural areas LPG is readily available. Our wide range of LPG fires ensures that you’ll find something suitable for you and your home.
LPG vapours escaping from a container to the atmosphere, unless burning is not readily visible but under certain circumstances can be detected:
1) In much or the same way as heat waves can be seen rising from a hot object or,
2) By the sound of the escaping gas if the leak is large enough.
Small leaks may be found by applying soapy water, never look for a leak using a naked flame. In an emergency situation it is of paramount importance to avoid endangering human life, always ensure to approach a fire or leak from upwind. Keep all persons, except those necessary to deal with the emergency at least 60 meters away from the area. If escaping gas is not on fire, close any valve which will stop of reduce the flow of gas. Small lines such as copper tubing may be flattened to stop the flow. Where LPG vapour or liquid is escaping and has not been ignited, it is not, except under certain conditions, a good policy to ignite it. There is no way of telling how far or exactly where the gas vapour has travelled to.
