LPG – propelling industries beyond the household

In today’s industrial landscape, the demand for versatile, efficient, and environmentally responsible energy sources is more significant than ever. SimsGas, a leading LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) solutions provider, is at the forefront of powering various industries beyond household needs. Our goal is to ensure the widespread adoption of this cost-effective and sustainable fuel source by highlighting its incredible versatility.

Let’s explore how LPG is transforming key sectors.

Ceramic industry

LPG is the ideal choice in the ceramic industry, where precise heating is paramount. From pottery to ceramic tiles, LPG’s clean combustion and controllable heat ensure efficient production processes. Burners and kilns require less maintenance, increasing productivity and cost savings.

Food processing

LPG plays a vital role in ensuring food processing safety and quality. Its clean burning properties make it preferred for bakeries, biscuit manufacturers, and slaughterhouses where contamination risks must be minimised. From sterilisation to pasteurisation, LPG enables efficient and hygienic operations.

Metal processing

Metallurgy demands precise heating treatments for specialised metal production. LPG’s controlled atmospheric environment in furnaces ensures high-quality output. Its flexibility and low maintenance costs make it indispensable for surface treatment applications like paint drying and galvanisation.

Textile industry

In the textile industry, where energy-intensive processes abound, LPG shines. Whether heating baths, drying threads, or polymerisation, LPG offers clean, flexible, and high thermal yield solutions. Its reliability and ease of maintenance make it a preferred choice across natural, artificial, and synthetic textile production.

Printing and packaging

The printing and packaging sector relies heavily on energy-intensive processes. LPG finds applications in decentralised heating solutions for paper and cardboard manufacturing. Modular heating and easy regulation ensure fast ink drying and efficient production while prioritising environmental care.

Chemicals production

Chemical engineering processes, spanning polymers, paints, varnishes, and more, benefit from SimsGas LPG’s attributes. Whether in steam boilers or heat exchangers, LPG enhances temperature regulation, energy yield, and maintenance efficiency. Its role extends to supporting critical chemical processes in various industries, including food and pharmaceuticals.


LPG-powered forklifts offer a winning combination of efficiency, safety, and environmental responsibility in warehouse operations. With low carbon monoxide emissions and lead-free operation, LPG forklifts meet air quality regulations while delivering rapid, powerful, and flexible handling solutions. Investing in LPG models ensures a pollution-free workplace environment without compromising on performance.

LPG is a household staple and a driving force behind industrial innovation. From ceramics to chemicals, food processing to textiles, and beyond, LPG’s versatility, safety, and efficiency make it the fuel for powering diverse industries. 

SimsGas remains committed to providing sustainable energy solutions that propel businesses forward as industries continue to evolve.
