Propane (C3H8) Gas

We, Axcel Gases along with our associated companies are a renowned Propane Gas manufacturer, supplier, dealers and exporters in India. Propane 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 -42.1°C (-43.8°F). Propane is basically a byproduct of Oil and natural gas Industry, available under earth and under sea bed. Propane is a gas at standard temperature and pressure. For ease of storage and transport, it is converted in to liquid. This liquefied gas is stored in Propane Gas Cylinders and supplied to diverse industries / laboratories for their respective use. We also supply Propane Gas Cartridges.

Propane is available in different purity grades and concentrations to meet the specific requirement of diverse industries. We have in house laboratory equipments to check the level of purity as well as concentrations. Propane is basically a fuel gas used to give heat to any requirement. It is majorly used as a source of energy for various applications. Some industrial applications use pure Propane for flammability test application as per there specific requirement.
