CHARACTERISTICS & PURPOSE
Butane is a gaseous component of natural gas, much like gasoline is a component of crude oil. While petroleum products like gasoline are refined, natural gas products like butane are extracted. Butane can also be produced from crude oil, but in much smaller quantities. Butane is often added to regular gasoline to boost performance without creating a highly volatile product. Other common uses for butane include refrigeration for brazing purposes, heating/process food in the Hotel Industry, widely used in Banquet Halls/Farm Houses in stove as food warmer.
