Vaporization rate of liquid propane

Vaporization rate of liquid propane

Vaporization rate of liquid propane

We are using a 25,000 gallon tank of liquid propane. Our "worst case" usage will be 12,500,000 BTU/hr. This tank is located in Mexico at the south Texas border. Will we need a vaporizing system, or will we have enough natural evaporation to fulfill our worst case needs? We plan to pressurize our 'in plant' piping to 15 P.S.I..

RE: Vaporization rate of liquid propane

Dear Sir,

Propane is a gas at ambient conditions ,so there is no doubt
you will get propane vapor..

The question is how much which can easily be calculated if you furnish the following:

1. Initial propane pressure at the source storage tank,after the regulating valve.

2.The size and length of pipeline.
