Reliable and Efficient Gas Solutions for Aerosol Propellant Production

LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) is commonly used as a propellant in aerosol products. Aerosols are products that are packaged in pressurised containers and release their contents in a fine mist or spray when a valve is activated. LPG is used in aerosols because it is a clean-burning fuel that is readily available, has a low boiling point, and can be easily compressed into a liquid.

LPG is used in aerosols despite having a distinct odour because the odour is actually added to the gas for safety reasons. LPG is a colourless, odourless gas, which makes it difficult to detect if there is a leak. However, a distinct odorant, such as ethanethiol or mercaptan, is added to LPG so that any gas leaks can be easily detected by smell.

For the usage in aerosols, the odorant needs to be removed from LPG, as it cannot be added in the product with the odorant present. Hence, de-odorizing systems or de-odorizing columns are used to remove the odorant such as mercaptan from the LPG.

In aerosols, LPG is stored in a pressurised container along with the product being dispensed. When the valve is opened, the LPG vaporises and expands rapidly, propelling the product out of the container in a fine mist or spray. LPG is used as a propellant in a wide range of aerosol products, including personal care products, household cleaners, insecticides, and automotive products.

LPG is a popular propellant used in the aerosols industry.
Here is a description of how LPG is used in this industry and what advantages it offers


LPG is commonly used as a propellant in aerosol products such as hairspray, air freshener, and insecticide. When the valve on an aerosol can is opened, the pressure from the LPG propellant forces the product out of the can and into the air.


LPG offers a consistent and reliable source of pressure, which is important for ensuring that the product is dispensed evenly and accurately. This is particularly important in the aerosol industry, where the correct amount of product must be dispensed to achieve the desired effect.


LPG is a safe propellant choice for the aerosols industry. It is non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-flammable under normal atmospheric conditions. Additionally, LPG is lighter than air, which reduces the risk of explosions or fires if the can is accidentally punctured.


LPG is a highly efficient propellant, which means that it requires less propellant per unit of product compared to other propellants such as compressed air or hydrocarbons. This makes LPG a cost-effective choice for the aerosols industry.

Environmental Benefits

LPG is considered to be a relatively clean-burning fuel, producing lower levels of emissions compared to other fossil fuels. This makes it an environmentally friendly option for the aerosols industry, particularly in today’s climate-conscious world.


LPG is readily available and easy to transport and store, making it a convenient choice for the aerosols industry. It can be stored in portable tanks or delivered via pipelines, and it doesn’t require a dedicated power source like electricity.

In summary, LPG is a popular and reliable propellant choice for the aerosols industry. It offers advantages such as consistency, safety, efficiency, environmental benefits, and convenience, making it an ideal choice for many aerosol products.

Pune Gas provides turn-key solutions for setting up LPG storage facilities and LPG de-odourizing columns and de-odourizing systems for the efficient use of LPG for aerosols production.
