Solutions for Industries

Bulls Gas is used to power industrial ovens, furnaces and machinery, in food production, for shrink-wrapping and in a diverse range of other industrial processes. LPG from Bulls Gas is an ideal fuel source for many industrial processes. Our quality products combined with our expert approach means we can provide energy solutions to meet your specific requirements.

Bitumen

LPG is popular for heating bitumen on site as it needs no pumping and is easily controlled. It can be burned under a hood that concentrates the heat on the road surface and it’s easy to monitor the precise temperatures required.

Metals

LPG can provide the high intensity, high temperature flame needed to melt and fuse alloys and metals with precision.

Ceramics

LPG is an ideal fuel for use in firing pottery and ceramics, which can be adversely affected by soot produced by other fuels. In addition, LPG provides good heat control.

Glass

Melting glass is an energy intensive process that requires precise temperature control and fuel purity. LPG can provide easily controllable small flames for specialist processes such as melting optical glass.

  

AGRICULTURE

Bulls gas is used for many farming applications.

Crop drying

LPG is a cleaner burning fuel that burns completely, so there is less chance of grain combustion, water ingress or fuel sediment. It can safely power a direct fired burner and can help reduce costs by prolonging the life of your equipment. It can also help to reduce maintenance, as there is no soot build-up.

Pig rearing

Fast-responding LPG radiant heaters are particularly suitable for weaning accommodation, where smaller pigs can get the warmth they need. They can also be used to provide background heating for dry sow and fattening houses, as well as powering mobile pig rearing units.

Horticulture & garden centres

An LPG system using radiant heat tubes, allows heat to be directed precisely at plant level, saving on heating costs. For even greater savings, specific ‘zone control’ can be achieved without the need to maintain the entire floor area at the same temperature. The system requires little space hence more floor area can be devoted to sales.

Flame weeding

Flaming has become a common weed and pest control technique. Propane fired torches produce a high temperature with a clean controllable flame just right for the purpose.

Poultry

Unlike with coal or electricity, the heat produced by LPG is moist – which helps towards providing a more stress free environment for chicks. The correct ambient temperature can be maintained, helping to promote faster growth and more even feathering. With LPG, there is also less risk of a power cut or voltage reduction, no fuel residue and no need to replace heat lamps.

Regulators: Bullnose & Swivel

This guide below is a step-by-step procedure on how to correctly and safely connect gas bottles to your appliances, with details of how to remove and replace regulators.

How to connect a LP gas bottle

  • Check that the valve hand wheel is off by turning it to off position.
  • Check the valve connection on the regulator and on the gas bottle for any damage before connecting the regulator.
  • Make sure the gas bottle connection is tight upon fitting it.
  • When you need gas, turn the valve hand wheel

How to disconnect a LP gas bottle

  • Turn the valve hand wheel off.
  • Except for multi-bottle installations with a changeover valve, turn off the gas tap if it’s fitted to the appliance. Wait until the burner and pilot lights have gone out.
  • Never remove the regulator (or connecting nut) with the bottle valve open.
  • Use your hands to untighten/unscrew the regulator.

Like all forms of gas, LPG can be hazardous if not handled correctly. Safety is of paramount importance at Bulls Gas, we therefore want to help you to understand our recommended safety procedures and how to reduce the risk of accidents that may arise due to mishandling this precious product.

Handling gas bottles

As with any heavy object, moving gas bottles can be a tricky business if you’re unsure of what to do. If the bottles are not handled properly, it could result in accidents, injuries or damage to the gas bottles themselves. We have put together some easy-to-follow tips for you to bear in mind when handling gas bottles:

  • Always use and store gas bottles in an upright position.
  • Gas bottles may be wet and slippery. Use gloves to ensure you have a firm grip.
  • Never roll gas bottles on their side, throw them or drop them.
  • Always use the proper lifting technique when moving gas bottles.
  • Empty bottles may still contain gas. Test them by rocking the cylinder to feel the movement of the liquid.
  • Never open the valve of an unconnected gas bottle as there is still likely to be some gas left inside.
  • Ask for help whenever in doubt in moving gas bottles.

For more information on LP Gas we are available to answer any questions you might have, so please call our technical helpline on any of our available numbers if you have any further queries regarding connecting or disconnecting gas regulators.

  • LPG is a gas mixture made up of short formed hydrocarbons Propane & Butane.
  • LPG burns more complete than most other fuels due to its high octane rating. By burning at a higher efficiency it emits less carbon, which makes it greener for the environment and is healthier and safer than other fuels. LPG also vaporizes immediately and is not water soluble, therefore does not affect groundwater sources.

Calorific Value

LPG burns better, due to a calorific value that is 3 times that of firewood. This is LPG’s most important characteristic; a higher calorific value means that it heats and cooks quicker than its alternative fuel comparatives.

Why switch to gas?

  • LPG is an economical fuel source.
  • It burns readily and gives off instant heat. The flame is visible and its size is easily controllable to meet your heating needs.
  • LPG burns very efficiently, with very low combustion emissions and does not create black smoke. It does not leave messy soot so your cooking vessels can be cleaned easily.
  • It is easy to store an LPG cylinder. It is clean and takes up very little space in the kitchen. Bigger cylinders are stored outside the house.
