FT Litro Gas Lanka introduces Premium Hybrid 18-Litre Cylinder

Litro Gas Lanka keeps in step with expanding consumer needs by providing innovative LPG solutions, says Anil Koswatte Chairman and CEO of Litro Gas Lanka.

Introducing a unique LPG solution to meet an increasing consumer demand is a priority for the Company, he says. “Our new and innovative Premium Hybrid 18 Litre Cylinder is expected to revolutionise the LPG industry in Sri Lanka by offering outstanding economic benefit in a size that meets global specifications.”

“We have consistently been able to pass on a great economic benefit to our consumers by  maintaining our LPG prices for over a year, in keeping with the guidance of  President Gotabaya Rajapaksa envisioned in the Government’s ‘Vistas of Prosperity & Splendour’ (Saubhagyaye Dakma). We believe that our new product will add tremendous value to that promise,” Koswatte said.

“Our priority has always been to bring the Sri Lankan LPG industry up to date with the standards of the global energy sector while ensuring safety at all levels of our operations and delivering value for money in energy solutions for our customers,” he said.

The rapid increase in globalisation continues to enhance the need for clean, green energy across the world – the new Litro Premium Hybrid 18 Litre Cylinder will now bring global standards to Sri Lanka with a unique size that allows more energy at a competitive price.

Commenting on the safety aspect of the new cylinder, Jayantha Basnayake, Director – Health, Safety & Environment said the new cylinder comes with an enhanced LPG Vapour Ullage which reduces transportation issues in changing environmental conditions, noting that the Ullage space is increased according to the international standards with the new packaging.

Koswatte said more space in the vapour phase ensures a continuity of saturated vapour flow , resulting in less flame fluctuation or system related pressure drop incidents. “ The EU directive 90/269/EEC on manual handling states that the maximum load of weight handled by a person to be limited to 25 kgs – hence, a reduced weight of the premium package solution minimises manual handling related risks, “ he said.

Kamal Wickramasinghe, Director Operations at Litro Gas Lanka says that the new Premium Hybrid 18 Litre Cylinder has a greater filling efficiency capability. “ It has an optimised propane component in the propane butane LPG mixture, ensuring more vapour space and hence, a more efficient filling which results in a faster supply process and a consistent turn around cycle”, Wickremesinghe said.
