Typical Business Applications Include:
Nearly 60% of U.S. commercial and industrial buildings depend on gas heat. Heating units include boilers (especially for large buildings), infrared heaters for large open spaces (such as transit stations and garage bays), make-up air systems that pass incoming air through heat exchangers, and unit heaters for retail stores, garages and other spaces that require large volumes of hot air.
Temporary Portable Heat:
Infrared and forced-air heaters at construction and other sites keep workers warm and can be used to dry concrete and other materials.
Propane-powered engines perform better and cost less to fuel than diesel or electric models. The initial purchase price is usually lower, too.
There are well-over more than 140,000 on-road propane vehicles in the United States. Many are in fleet applications, such as police cars, shuttles, and school buses. Propane vehicles have a high octane rating and low carbon and oil contamination that can help lead longer engine life.
Propane in Agriculture:
Half of all farms in the United States (about 1.5 million) rely on propane for a wide range of uses. These include flame weeding, pest control, crop drying, poultry and pig brooding, stock tank heating, space heating in greenhouses, and frost protection in fields and orchards.
