propane or butane - what's the difference?

LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a hydrocarbon gas that exists in a liquefied form. LPG is a colourless, low carbon and highly efficient fuel. Supplied in two main forms, propane and butane, LPG has a range of uses – from vehicles to BBQs, heating homes and much more.
LPG boils at a low temperature and to avoid it evaporating due to its low boiling point, it is typically stored in pressurised steel vessels such as gas bottles or bulk LPG tanks.
Propane has a boiling temperature of -42°C, whilst butane has a higher boiling point at -2°C. As propane functions well in lower temperatures, it is usually used for outdoor use. Conversely, butane is typically used indoors due to its higher boiling point. Butane is perfect for any of your portable gas heaters and single-burner cooking appliances.  Also, butane produces more energy per cubic metre than propane. Propane is the favoured choice for commercial use. It’s also well suited for providing heat and cooking fuel for caravans. If you're unsure whether you need a propane or butane gas bottle, contact us for information.

PORTABLE LPG BOTTLES REQUIRE LITTLE SPACE

what is LPG?

LPG STORAGE OPTIONS

You can pop your portable gas bottle almost anywhere. Propane, because of its low boiling point, should be stored and used outdoors. On the flip side, butane doesn’t function as effectively in colder climates – so is best used and stored indoors.
As no two homes or businesses are the same, it’s important to us to give our customers choice – especially when it comes to gas storage solutions. For the most cost-effective and practical storage option for your business, please contact us.
