Domestic LPG gas cylinder dimensions and domestic gas cylinder weight shown are approximate. Actual LPG gas cylinder sizes (propane gas cylinder sizes), cylinder capacity & gas cylinder dimensions may vary by manufacturer, as there are no standard gas cylinder sizes (propane bottle sizes).

Gas Cylinders - LPG Cylinder

Gas Cylinders - LPG CylinderGas cylinders are pressure vessels for storing the common LPG gases, propane or butane.

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

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

Gas cylinder sizes, cylinder capacity & gas cylinder dimensions vary, based on application and demand. Small propane gas cylinder sizes are portable, as used in camping.

Propane Gas Cylinder Sizes - Propane Cylinder Sizes

Propane gas cylinder sizes (propane cylinder sizes) are the same as LPG gas cylinder sizes because LPG in Australia is propane. This includes small propane cylinder sizes for BBQ. In addition to the propane gas cylinder sizes, propane cylinder capacity, propane gas cylinder weight and all of the propane gas cylinder dimensions are the same as the standard gas cylinder sizes in Australia.

Domestic LPG Gas Cylinder Dimensions - Domestic LPG Gas Cylinder Sizes

Gas Cylinder Sizes & Domestic LPG Cylinder Dimensions

Domestic LPG gas cylinder dimensions and domestic gas cylinder sizes (propane gas cylinder sizes) are the same as LPG gas cylinder sizes because domestic and home gas cylinders are the same as those for small business. This includes small domestic gas cylinder sizes for BBQ.

Domestic LPG gas cylinder dimensions include domestic gas cylinder height, domestic gas cylinder weight and domestic cylinder capacity and are the same as the standard gas cylinder sizes in Australia.

Gas Cylinder Weight - How Much Does a Gas Cylinder Weight - Empty Gas Cylinder Weight - Full Gas Cylinder Weight

Tare weight "T.W." stamp on neck ringEmpty gas cylinder weight (weight of lpg cylinder without gas) is commonly called the tare weight.  The weight of empty lpg cylinder is stamped into the neck ring next to the word "Tare", "Tare Weight" or just "TW". You can see the "T.W." stamped into the neck ring in the adjacent picture.

Full gas cylinder weight (weight of filled gas cylinder) is a combination of the empty gas cylinder weight plus the gas cylinder weight of the contents equaling the total weight of gas cylinder.

Cooking gas cylinder weight and domestic gas cylinder weight are both calculated the same way.

14.2kg Domestic Cooking Cylinder

Domestic LPG Cylinder Dimensions - Indane Gas Cylinder Size

In India, 14.2kg domestic LPG cylinder dimensions are approximately 315mm in diameter and 825mm in height, with 33.3L water volume capacity and a 15.3kg tare weight (empty gas cylinder weight). Indane gas cylinder size 14.2kg is the gas cylinder weight of the gas contents and the total weight of LPG gas cylinder in India (cooking gas cylinder weight) is 29.5kg, which is the gross full gas cylinder weight (gas bottle weight).

Water Capacity of Gas Cylinder Sizes

The water capacity of gas cylinder sizes is a figure that is mostly irrelevant for consumers. Engineers use it. As it suggests, the water capacity of gas cylinder sizes is the cylinder capacity of the LPG gas cylinder sizes as if they were filled with water. You can see the "W.C." stamped into the neck ring in the image above.

Water Capacity of Gas Cylinder Chart

The following chart shows the water capacity of gas cylinder in common sizes:

9 21.6kg
15 36kg
18 43kg
45 108kg
90 215kg
210 499kg

However, the specific gravity of propane is different and gas cylinders are also designed with expansion space, for the gas. This makes the water cylinder capacity completely different from the propane fill cylinder capacity of the same LPG gas cylinder size.

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. A good conversion rate to remember for cylinder capacity is that 1 kilogram is approximately equal to 1.96 litre of LPG.
