Uses of Propane:
- Home Heating
When sold as fuel, propane is also known as liquified petroleum gas (LPG or LP-gas) and can be a mixture of propane with smaller amounts of propylene, butane and butylene, plus an odorant (ethanethiol) to allow the normally odorless propane to be smelled. In the United States, propane is primarily a pure fuel with only the odorant added.
In many areas of the United States, propane is used in furnaces, stoves, water heaters, laundry dryers, and other heat-producing appliances. 6.5 million American households use propane as their primary heating fuel. Propane also powers some locomotives, buses, forklifts, and taxis and is used for heat and cooking in recreational vehicles and campers.
Other industries in the United States using propane include glass makers, brick kilns, poultry farms, and other industries that need portable heat.
Propane is heavier than air. In its raw state, propane sinks and pools at ground level. Liquid propane will flash to a vapor at atmospheric pressure and appears white due to moisture condensing from the air.
