Applications of LPG

Totalgaz is a very versatile fuel which is widely used for varied applications, some of which are shown below :

FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRY

FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRY – Drying, Baking & Frying

Totalgaz is widely used in the Food Industry like Hotels, Restaurants, Bakeries, Canteens, Resorts, etc. Low sulphur content and controllable temperature makes TOTALGAZ the most preferred fuel in the food industry.

PETROCHEMICAL PRODUCTION

PETROCHEMICAL PRODUCTION – as a competitive feedstock

IRON & STEEL INDUSTRY

IRON & STEEL INDUSTRY – Profile Cutting

The metal industry is indeed one of the most important consumers of energy.  TOTALGAZ being a far superior fuel as compared to the other heavy fuels helps improve the cost of operation and strikes an economic balance between fuel price and quality of the end product. The application is basically for cutting, heating and melting. 

Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals are frequently cast into shapes by melting and injection or pouring into suitable patterns and moulds. TOTALGAZ in the instant case is an ideal fuel for meeting the requirement of temperature regulation and desired quality.

TEXTILE INDUSTRY

TEXTILE INDUSTRY – Singeing & Drying

TOTALGAZ can be used for singeing of cotton yarn, silk yarn, cloth and infrared drying of cloth.

Steam can be generated using TOTALGAZ fired Boilers

FERROUS METALS

FERROUS METALS – Heat Treatment

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY – Paint Baking & Components

Automotive LPG is a clean fuel with high octane aptly suited for vehicles both in terms of emissions and cost of the fuel. The main advantage of using automotive LPG : it is free of lead, very low in sulphur, other metals, aromatics and other contaminants. Unlike Natural Gas, LPG is not a Green House Gas. 

GLASS & CERAMIC INDUSTRY

GLASS & CERAMIC INDUSTRY – Melting & Tile Baking

The manufacture of glass / ceramic products is complicated by a numerous chemical reactions which occur during the process. The use of a clean fuel like TOTALGAZ enhances the product quality thereby reducing technical problems related to the manufacturing activity. TOTALGAZ being a gaseous fuel gets easily regulated and compliments the heating process. 

Glass melting is a huge operation and involves massive supply of heat. Usage of cheaper fuels may lead to technical problems resulting into poor quality of products. TOTALGAZ being a far superior fuel, helps in eliminating such hurdles during the melting process.

FARMING ACTIVITIES

FARMING ACTIVITIES – Seed Drying

TOTALGAZ is the ideal fuel for production of food by Agriculture and Animal Husbandry. Drying of crops and Other Farm products requires clean and sulphur free fuel for drying activity to avoid any transfer of bad taste or smell to the dried crops. TOTALGAZ in the farming industry can be used for the following :

1. Drying of Crops
2. Cereal Drying
3. Curing of Tobacco and Rubber
4. Flame Cultivation
5. Horticulture
6. Soil Conditioning
7. Livestock Farming

AEROSOL INDUSTRY

AEROSOL INDUSTRY – As a propellant

An aerosol formulation is a blend of an active ingredient with propellant, emulsifiers, perfumes, etc. TOTALGAZ, being environment friendly, has replaced the Ozone depleting CFC gases which were earlier used by the aerosol Industry.

BUILDING INDUSTRY

BUILDING INDUSTRY

TOTALGAZ being a premium gaseous fuel makes it ideal for usage in the Cement manufacturing process. 

The ease in regulation and soft quality of the TOTALGAZ flame and low sulphur content are the key advantages both with regard to cement quality and kiln operability.

STEAM RAISING INDUSTRY

STEAM RAISING INDUSTRY

Coals, Furnace Oil & Natural Gas are the most economical fuel for this application. Though economical, it is undesirable for reasons of environmental pollution. Natural gas being a gaseous fuel requires pipelines to cater to such requirements. Hence TOTALGAZ becomes the most preferred fuel.
