Indane is today one of the largest packed-LPG brands in
the world and has been conferred the coveted ‘Consumer Superbrand’ status by the
Superbrands Council of India.
Having launched LPG marketing in the mid-60s, IndianOil has been credited with bringing
about a ‘kitchen revolution,’ spreading warmth and cheer in millions of households
with the introduction of the clean and efficient cooking fuel. It has led to a substantial
improvement in the health of women, especially in rural areas by replacing smoky
and unhealthy chulha. Indane is today an ideal
fuel for modern kitchens, synonymous with safety, reliability and convenience.
With the status of an exclusive business vertical within the Corporation, the Indane
network delivers 1.2 million cylinders a day to the doorsteps of over 53 million
households, making IndianOil the second largest marketer of LPG globally, after
SHV Gas of The Netherlands. Indane is available in compact 5 kg cylinders for rural,
hilly and inaccessible areas, 14.2 kg cylinders for domestic use, and 19 kg and
47.5 kg for commercial and industrial use.
LPG is a blend of Butane and Propane readily liquefied under moderate pressure.
LPG vapour is heavier than air; thus it normally settles down in low-lying places.
Since LPG has only a faint scent, a mercaptan odorant is added to help in its detection.
In the event of an LPG leak, the vapourisation of liquid cools the atmosphere and
condenses the water vapour contained in it to form a whitish fog, which is easy
to observe. LPG in fairly large concentrations displaces oxygen leading to a nauseous
or suffocating feeling.
Suraksha LPG hose, flame retardant aprons and energy efficient Green Label stoves
are recommended to enhance safety measures while using LPG as cooking fuel.
