Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a colourless odourless liquid which readily evaporates into a gas. Normally an odourant has been added to it to help detect leaks. LPG (either Butane or Propane), is generally stored and distributed as a liquid and it is widely used for process and space heating, cooking and automotive propulsion. Objectives State the action to take with a ruptured LPG pipe or appliance and the action to take if involved in fire. State why LPG cylinders must be kept upright. Name the 2 types of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) used in domestic appliances. Describe the common causes of fire or explosion involving .
