What Is a Commercial LPG Cylinder?

LPG cylinders that are used for profit-making or business purposes, such as electricity generation, transportation, poultry, industries, and restaurants, are commercial LPG cylinders. The prices of these LPG cylinders are determined by oil marketing companies run by the state.

What Are Domestic LPG Cylinders?

Domestic LPG cylinders are used for household purposes, such as cooking at home, and not for profit-making.

The basic difference between commercial and domestic cylinders is in the amount of gas used and the quantity of gas present in the cylinder. That is why industrial facilities are provided with larger LPG vessels. Moreover, many industries use multiple LPG cylinders simultaneously.
