What Is the Heating Value of Propane?

Answer

The heating value of propane is 46.357 Kj/Mol. The high heating value makes it ideal for use in barbecues, portable stoves, engines and residential central heating. An odorant is always added so that people can easily smell the gas in case there is a leak.

Propane is predominantly stored in red Calor LPG cylinders / bottles and bulk storage tanks. Like butane, propane is an LPG , existing as a vapour at ambient temperature and pressure conditions, yet easily liquefied by cooling or applying moderate pressure. Propane mixed with correct proportions of air produces a highly flammable mixture, with a flammability range of between 2% and 10%, by volume of gas in air.
