LPG is gaining popularity as a fuel source due to the abundant supply, low-cost and eco-friendly alternative. However, implementing LPG in industrial, commercial or residential applications requires a deeper understanding of the systems and related variables. These include the boil-off rate, size and fill level of the storage vessel, storage tank’s pressure, ambient storage temperature, safety issues, failure rates, fuel consumption rate, and more. If you’re looking for a vapourizer for your application’s continuous and steady operation, we bring you a comprehensive guide to help you make the right choice.

Heat Source:

Vapourizers are often distinguished based on the heating source for the fluid. Here are a few common vapourizers with different heat sources:

Ambient Vapourizers – They channel heat from the surrounding air in order to vapourize cryogenic and other low-temperature liquids.

Hot Water Vapourizers – Also known as water bath vapourizers, they use pre-heated water or any other hot liquid as a heat source for vapourization. As a result, there’s better precision in temperature control.

Radiant Heat Vapourizers – They use radiant energy from a combustible or any other heat source to vapourize and offer an alternative to conduction heating.

Steam Vapourizers – They use pre-heated steam or any other hot gas for vapourization and offer precise temperature control and efficient heat transfer.

Electric Vapourizers – These use electrically powered resistance heating coils to transfer heat for optimum vapourization.

Performance Criteria:

Some key specifications define the performance of vapourizers.

Capacity – It is the rate at which the liquid is vapourized in the device and it is specified by kilograms per hour. For instance, customers who have a requirement of up to 1000 kg per hour can choose a classic vapourizer and those with a requirement of up to 50 kg per hour can opt for a mini vapourizer like MX Pro.

Maximum Temperature – This is the maximum operating temperature of the vapourizer or the highest temperature that the device is designed to reach. Depending on the requirements, you can choose one that best suits your highest temperature needs.

Power Requirements – If the vapourizer uses electric heat or any other electric power, the requirement is usually specified in kilowatts (kW).

Operating Pressure – This specifies the maximum pressure conditions under the operations at the maximum temperature.

Based on your individual requirements, you can find a vapourizer that aligns with your needs and fulfils all the criteria for your operations.
