Propane is stored in a specially designed vessel. Each tank is designed to withstand the liquid pressure of propane that is stored in the tank. You can choose to buy, lease or rent a propane tank, depending on the gas distributor that you choose. You have the choice between two types of tank: the underground gas tank or the above-ground gas tank. Each type of tank has different capacities to meet your personal energy needs.
The Above-Ground Tank
The choice of your gas tank depends on your energy consumption. Most people in anticipation of natural gas opt for the the a above-ground gas tank. This tank is usually a light green color. One conduit connects the propane tank with all the gas devices in your home. A gas tank with a capacity of 1,000 to 1,600 liters is recommended for household use. For larger energy consumers, for example for industrial or agricultural use, there are tanks with a capacity of up to 3,000 liters.
The Underground Gas Tank
This type of gas tank is chosen often because it is unnoticable in your garden. The capacities range from 2,500 to 4,500 liters. The underground gas tank is completely buried underground, only the monitoring 'room' where the measuring instruments and distribution pipe are located remains visible.
Gas cylinders are the ideal solution for mobile gas devices. A gas cylinder is easy to transport and install. They are very practical at home or when travelling. Also professional companies use propane gas cylinders, for example market vendors, caterers and restaurateurs. An ideal garden party includes a gas barbecue running on propane gas cylinders.
