VOT stands for “Vapor Off Take”.
In a VOT system, the LPG is naturally converted into vapor inside the cylinder. Due to heat in the environment surrounding the cylinder, the liquid LPG inside the cylinder is converted to gas. Factors like liquid level in the cylinder, the composition of LPG and the temperature outside the cylinder play a role in the natural vaporization rate. The vaporized LPG then passes via a PRS (Pressure Reducing Station).
The off take rate in VOT is 400 – 700 grams per hour, per cylinder. This makes it best suited for applications requiring low consumption of LPG per hour.
