Gas Bottles - LPG Gas Bottles

LPG Gas BottlesLPG gas bottles are typically steel vessels for storing the common LPG gases, propane or butane. Homes and small businesses typically use either 45kg gas bottle (45 kg LPG cylinder) cylinder capacity, the larger 90 kg gas bottle or 210kg LPG gas bottle sizes (LPG gas cylinder sizes).

BBQ LPG gas bottles come in 4kg & 9kg cylinder capacity, gas bottle dimensions & gas bottle sizes (propane bottle sizes). High volume users have the larger LPG gas tank sizes (LPG tank sizes).

LPG gas bottles include a main gas valve for controlling the release of the gas. The Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) is a safety device incorporated into the main gas valve on the LPG gas bottles. If the pressure of the gas inside the LPG gas bottle increases, as the result of a fire or other heat source, the pressure relief valve releases some of the gas to relieve the pressure.

Gas bottles sizes may also be called "gas cylinder sizes", "LPG gas bottle sizes", "LPG bottle sizes", "LPG gas cylinder sizes", "BBQ gas bottle sizes", "LPG tanks sizes", "LPG cylinder sizes", “propane gas bottle sizes”, "propane gas cylinder sizes" or just "propane tank sizes".

Gas bottles sizes (gas cylinder sizes) and cylinder capacity contain liquid and gas, as LPG - Liquefied Petroleum Gas - liquefies under pressure. An LPG gas bottle is considered low pressure versus high pressure gas bottle sizes, as used with CNG.

Gas bottle sizes, cylinder capacity & gas bottle dimensions vary, based on application and demand, as there are no standard LPG gas cylinder sizes (propane bottle sizes) cylinder capacity & gas bottle dimensions. Small LPG gas bottles are portable, as used in camping.

LPG Tanks Sizes - Propane Tank Sizes

LPG tanks also contain liquid and gas, with LPG liquefying under relatively low pressure. LPG tank sizes (propane tank sizes) & dimensions range from 0.5 tonnes all the way up to 50 tonnes and larger.

45kg Gas Bottle (45 kg LPG cylinder)

45kg LPG gas bottle dimensions - LPG Gas Bottle Sizes

45kg gas bottle-cylinder sizes, cylinder capacity & 45kg gas bottle dimensions (45 kg LPG cylinder) include an 45kg gas bottle (45 kg LPG cylinder) height of approximately 1250mm, a width of 375mm and a cylinder capacity of 88 litres. 45kg gas bottle – also called 45 kg gas cylinder – are the most popular domestic LPG gas bottle sizes (gas cylinder sizes).

A  45kg gas bottle (45 kg LPG cylinder) can be exchanged or refilled onsite via LPG refill tanker trucks.

A typical installation is comprised of two 45kg LPG gas bottles, so you can switch LPG gas bottles while awaiting an exchange or LPG refill of the empty.

9kg gas bottle dimensions are approximately 315mm in diameter, 475mm in LPG cylinder height and 17.64L of cylinder capacity.

The largest domestic gas bottle dimensions are for 210kg at about 765mm in diameter, 1460mm in LPG cylinder height and 411L of cylinder capacity.

LPG gas bottler dimensions quoted are approximate. Actual gas bottle-cylinder dimensions may vary by manufacturer, as there are no standard gas cylinder sizes, cylinder capacity & gas bottle dimensions (propane bottle sizes).

Propane Gas Bottle Sizes - Propane Tank Sizes - Propane Gas Cylinder Sizes

Propane Gas Bottle-Cylinder Sizes - Domestic LPG Gas Bottle-Cylinder DimensionsDomestic LPG gas bottle-cylinder sizes, cylinder capacity & gas bottle dimensions are the same for propane gas bottle-cylinder sizes (propane bottle sizes). Propane is also called LPG, as is butane. So, domestic LPG gas bottle sizes are the same as propane gas cylinder sizes. 

Propane gas bottle-cylinder-tank sizes incorporate domestic LPG gas cylinder dimensions including the propane 45kg gas bottle-cylinder (45 kg LPG cylinder) with 45kg gas bottle dimensions of: 1250mm LPG cylinder height, 375mm diameter & 88 Litres cylinder capacity. They also include 90 kg gas bottle sizes and 210 kg gas cylinder sizes.

The various LPG-propane gas cylinder-bottle-tank sizes exist because different people used different amounts of gas and the propane gas bottle sizes are selected accordingly.

9kg Gas Bottle Dimensions-Gas Cylinder Dimensions

9kg gas bottle dimensions vary with an LPG cylinder height of 450-525mm, a diameter of 309-335mm, a tare weight of 7.8-10.4kg and a nominal cylinder capacity of 9kg but a typical actual fill of 8.5kg. 9kg gas bottle dimensions vary because there are many manufacturers.  There are also no standard gas cylinder sizes, cylinder capacity & gas bottle dimensions (propane bottle sizes).

LPG Cylinder Capacity in Litres

LPG cylinder capacity in litres goes from a small volume 7.25 litres (3.7kg) LPG cylinder capacity to a large cylinder capacity of 411 litres (210kg) LPG cylinder. The cylinder capacity of an LPG cylinder in litres can change if sold by the kg, as propane has 1.96L per kg whilst butane has only 1.724L per kg. This is because the two gases have different specific gravity.
