LPG detection in industrial environments

LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a mixture of hydrocarbons derived from the process of refining crude oil and producing natural gas. Mainly composed of propane and butane, when cooled or compressed it changes from gaseous to liquid form, facilitating transportation and storage, making it a very versatile fuel suitable for use in many applications. Compared with other energy sources, it is cheaper and more efficient, and also emits fewer harmful emissions during combustion than coal or oil.


LPG: where it is used

Due to its properties, LPG is considered an excellent fuel; during combustion it produces fewer emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, helping to reduce air pollution and mitigate climate change impacts. Within the industrial context, the use of LPG can help reduce downtime in production processes, and being easily storable, companies can safely and securely accumulate LPG reserves.

LPG is used in several applications, including: GPL, LPG

  • Heating
  • Industrial and domestic kitchens
  • Power generation
  • LPG vehicles
  • Agricolture
  • Chemical industry

LPG detection: why it is important

Although LPG is a safe fuel when used properly, it is important to treat it with caution because of its high flammable potential. LPG leaks can cause fires or explosions, making continuous monitoring necessary both in the processes where it is used and within storage areas. Gas detectors employ different types of technologies to detect specific combustible gases, including those contained in LPG. Within a gas detection system, detectors are typically connected to control units that, if LPG gas is detected above a certain safety threshold, activate alarms and safety systems to prevent accidents. To this end, gas detection systems must undergo regular maintenance and calibration to ensure their effectiveness and reliability.

Our certifications

Depending on the applications in which LPG is used, the gas detection systems used to keep track of its use may require different safety specifications, including a certain level of intrinsic safety or protection from contaminants.

ATEX, sicurezza


The Directive establishes the requirements and evaluation of equipment intended for potentially explosive atmospheres.

sicurezza, certificazione


The IECEx system is an international certification system. It is developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission.

sicurezza, certificazione

SIL2 (3)

The Safety Integrity Level (SIL) is the ability to reduce the assessed risk while ensuring the reliability of the safety systems.
