Bottled Gas

Definition - What does Bottled Gas mean?

Bottled Gas refers to gaseous substances that are compressed and stored in special cylinders. A good example of Bottled Gas is LPG, i.e., liquefied petroleum gas, which is compressed and stored in gas cylinders for domestic use. The gases are at a standard temperature and pressure state, during which they can be stored in the large vessels made of aluminum, carbon steel or stainless steel. In many countries, cooking gas is provided through these cylinders instead of pipelines. The cylinders are usually refillable and they are a suitable way to store compressed gas.

Petropedia explains Bottled Gas

Many gases are stored inside pressure vessels rather than pipelines. These vessels are referred to as gas cylinders, which are an ideal option to store compressed gas. Since the gases are at STP, i.e., standard temperature and pressure, they can be either in 4 cases – The material can liquefy, stay as a gas, dissolve or liquefy at reduced temperature with an increase in pressure. The gas stored inside the cylinder or flask is referred to as Bottled Gas. Some of the common examples of Bottled Gas are fluorine, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, helium, propane, butane, and carbon dioxide to name a few.
