Abstract:
    We have made LPG(Liquified Petroleum Gas) to Natural Gas pressure regulator. It will be connected to main gas line and in case of Gas load shedding we can easily convert to LPG cylinder and vice versa
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Whenever we make a new house, it takes 6 months for Gas connection and also during Gas load shedding, we need alternative fuel source. The most common alternative is LPG cylinder but it cannot run geysers,ovens and heaters. It can only run stove and that also after changing nozzles.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Gas load shedding is problem of every resident in Pakistan. Also there are 300,000 new houses every year. So, all of them need this regulator.
How will the solution works
    As, the working Pressure of LPG cylinder is 350 psi while all our appliances at home run at 0.5 psi - 1 psi. So, we cannot directly connect LPG cylinder directly to our appliances. For stoves we need to change the nozzles while for heater,geyser and ovens we need to change whole burner. So, our regulator will connect on one end to LPG cylinder and then to main gas pipe line. So, it will regulate reduce pressure from 350 psi to 0.5 psi and also we regulate pressure will load changes.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There is no other device in market used for this specific purpose.
