    hiii all

    how to convert LPG from kg to liters? pls suggest.

    Re: convert lpg from kg to liters

    You need the density, which itself can vary depending on conditions.

    Some examples; butane is approximately 0.505 kg/L and propane is about 0.575 kg/L.


    I could be completely off, though.

      I found a page here that lists the density.
      http://www.aegpl.com/htgb/0007.htm

      Liquid density at 15 C is 500 to 510 kg/m3, that would be about 0.505 kg/L

      kilograms of LPG / 0.505 kg/L = liters of LPG

          I could be right this is what I think

          LPG is a mixture of Propane and butane Gas the mixture varies.

          But this is how I worked it out Propane = 1.95 litres per Kilogram Butane 1.74 Litres per Kilogram.

          1.95 + 1.74 = 3.69 / 2 = 1.85

          6 kilo bottle of propane from calor gas costs 15.49

          6 Kilos x 1.85 litres = 11.1 litres x 40.9 LPG price at filling station = 453.99

          453.99 / 100 = 4.54

          15.49 - 4.54 = Ripped off by 10.95

          Solution buy a refillable bottle problem very expensive do not try to fill calor gas bottles the bottle needs special pressure and blow off valves which standard bottle don't have.

          A standard bottle is filled by weight and The ones that you can refill yourself is filled by pressure and thats my answer.

            is useful in suggesting 1 litre of LPG accounts for 1.8 kilo's of CO2-e and 1 Kilo of LPG accounts for 3.3 kg's of CO2-e - so, approx 1.82 litres of LPG to a kilo

              In trying to tie up solar water collector calculations I have this problem as well - so now the question is are you guys talking about about LPG in the gaseous or the liquid form when you mention litres?

              I have it from Calor Gas
              calor.co.uk/faq/general.htm
              that their LPG is equivalent to
              13.62 kwh/kg propane or
              13.83 kwh/kg butane.

              From elsewhere: it may be that
              1 kg of liquid = 95L of gas or
              1L liquid = 250 L of gas
              and
              95 kj/L
              or
              24,700kj/L but is this liquid or gas litres?

              It is confusing.

              I know Calor charge me per liquid litre - and charge too much, but that's a different story.

              I am trying to use heat captured by solar collector to give kwh heat equivalent (got that OK) and litres LPG saved from burning hence cost saved (still working on that).

                I ckecked the site. Your figures per kg are reversed, butance has the lower energy content per kg. Since commercial gas is not 100% pure, an analysis from your source is probably the best number. For comparison with other figures note that 1 kWh = 3600 kJ = 3.6 MJ

                The kilogram of gas will supply the same energy as a liquid or a gas; you just have to know how big it is in those states if you wish to work by volume.

                Liquid propane is about. 0.507 kg/L, and liquid butane -.585 kg/L. Thus, 7.01 kWh/L for liquid propane, 7.97 kWh/L for liquid butane.

                As a gas, propane has a molecular weight of 44 g/mol, and ideal gas has a molar volume of 22.414 L at 0 degrees C, 1 atm (the conditions for Nm^3). Thus gas density is about 1.963 kg/nm^3. 1 kg should occupy 509 L as a gas. Note that is at 0 C and varies with absolute temperature.

                  These figures appear reversed, compared to other sources. Butane is heavier.

                    1KG LPG = 1.82 LTR (DEPENDS ON TEMP.)

                              1 kg of LPg is 1.8 litres. This is a rough estimation
