Methane (CH4) Gas

We, Axcel gases along with our associated companies are a renowned Methane Gas manufacturer, supplier and exporters in India. Methane is a chemical compound which is highly flammable, non toxic, non corrosive, colorless and odorless gas in its pure form. It has got a boiling point of -161.4°C (-258.6&degF). Methane is mainly a natural gas which is available under earth and under sea bed. Major source of Methane are coal fields and natural gas fields under the earth. In Atmosphere also, it is available but in very less concentration level. Methane can also be produced or collected from biogas plant or waste water sludge treatment plants. It is highly unstable in nature when available in gas form at standard pressure and temperature. To store and to transport it, it is liquefied for ease and safety of handling. This liquefied gas is then transferred in Methane Gas Cylinders and supplied to diverse industries / laboratories for their respective use.
