This study was commissioned and financed by The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB). The tests were performed in collaboration with Energigas Sverige, which provided equipment and liquified petroleum gas, and with south Älvsborgs rescue service association (SÄRF) which provided the testing site and supported in safety of the project.

Heat fluxs from burning liquified petroleum gas (LPG) leaking from hoses and pipes are measured via different leakage scenarios to provide data for safety distances when loading LPG from tanker to cistern. Three scenarios are divided into big and small leakages from a pipe and a large leakage from a textile reinforced rubber hose.
