Commonly known for its consumer use in gas grills, propane (C3H8) is a colorless and highly flammable liquified gas – although it has the lowest flammability range of any of the commonly available fuel gases. As a constituent of natural gas, it is obtained by refining and processing natural gas. Propane is heavier than air, with both a primary and secondary flash temperature. It is one of the main components in liquid petroleum gas (LPG) along with butane. As the ratios of these LPG gases vary from one supplier to another, the flame properties can also differ. Propane is available in liquid and gaseous forms.
Propane (C3H8) is used to produce materials such as aerosol propellants, solvents and synthetic vulcanized rubber.
Propane (C3H8) can be used by builders on-site to power heaters when electricity is not available. It is also used as a fuel to drive forklifts
Propane (C3H8) is used on hundreds of thousands of farms across the United States. This includes the use of this gas in various forms of farm equipment. Beyond the equipment, it is applied by food producers to help dry crops, warm chicken coops and to sterilize milk equipment.
Propane (C3H8) is utilized in oxy-propane cutting and brazing, soldering, preheating and heat treatment. It is not a good welding gas as it does not have a reducing zone such as acetylene gas. It is also used to forge steel and in brass and aluminum processing. It is also used as a fuel to drive forklifts
