What is the calorific value for LPG?
The calorific value of LPG can be worked out using the following calculations:
- 1 Tonne = 1000kg or 1969 litres, therefore 1kg = 1.969 litres
- 1 Litre of propane = 7.08 kWh (kilowatt hours) or 24000 BTU/h
- 1kg of propane = 14.019 kWh (kilowatt hours) or 47300 BTU/h
To convert from m3 or ft3 into litres use the following calculations:
- To convert m³ of vapour to litres of liquid; multiply by 3.85
- to convert ft³ of vapour to litres; multiply by 0.1034
