Advantages


LPG shows certain basic advantages against the liquid fuels that it is called to substitute them mainly. As the most important though comparative advantages of LPG are those mentioned below:

  • Bigger degree of energy efficiency. The increased energy efficiency of LPG has as result the energy saving, which from a financial benefit results of course that is so bigger as bigger is the cost participation of a fuel to the formation of a total cost of an activity. The below table indicates the energy ratio of LPG with the other fuels.

11.000 Kcal/Kg 95% 10.450 Kcal/Kg

PETROLEUM 8.200 Kcal/Lt 80% 6.560 Kcal/Lt
MAZUT 1500 9.350 Kcal/Kg 80% 7.480 Kcal/Kg
MAZUT 3500 9.250 Kcal/Kg 80% 7.400 Kcal/Kg

LPG QUANTITY     

OTHER FUEL QUANTITY    
1 Kg OF LPG 1,60 Lt of petroleum
1,39 Kg of mazut 1500
1,40 Kg of mazut 3500

The reasons that lead to the above increased energy output of LPG and energy saving from its utility, are the following:

  • The high heat energy, 50% bigger that that of petroleum.
  • The lack of sulphur from LPG and consequently the non-existence of sulphur oxides in exhaust-gases, permits the use of waste heat recovery without the danger of corrosions.
