Developing A New Site?

Elgas’ Technical Team Can Help!

At Elgas, our specialist LP Gas engineers can help you work through the necessary Australian Standards and Industry Codes to ensure your site is compliant, sized correctly to suit your needs, and can be safely supplied.

Our Elgas engineers are highly regarded industry professionals and we sit on many industry regulatory boards and advisory committees. We can assist you with LPG installation technical drawings that reference AS1596 – Storage and Handling of LPG, and relevant state energy safety organisation requirements.

Dangerous Goods requirements for all sites are forever changing. Contact one of our New Business Managers to coordinate your specific site requirements from initial design and layout, to site installation and commissioning.

Elgas can provide Local, Safe, Reliable Technical Support

Site Engineering Support

Elgas' technical engineers are across all the relevant LPG Australian Standards and State Safety Codes. Our New Business Managers can connect you with the right local engineer to assist in the early design and layout phase and then coordinate everything to do with the site installation and commissioning, including site training.


LP Gas Tools

GasToolsTM is an app designed specifically for Australian gas fitters. It provides information on vaporisation, pipe sizing, exclusion zones, LPG conversion factors and much more.


Gas Bottle and Tank Sizes

The most common LP Gas bottle sizes are 45kg, followed by 90kg and 210kg LP Gas cylinders. LP Gas tank sizes range from 0.5 tonnes, all the way up to 50 tonnes. The most common tank size is a 3 tonne or 7.5kl tank. Tank sizes are determined by the expected LPG demand required, and consideration is given to ambient conditions and subsequent vaporisation rates required for the LPG load requirements.
