What can it do?
- Mix propane (LPG) with air to provide similar burning values to NG and similar on the Wobbe Index (Gas Composition Match Example 12A)
- Restore lifelines to disaster areas
- Allow normal life to continue during emergency or maintenance
- Provide backup to cogeneration systems
What makes the PA a unique innovation?
- Does not use electricity or external power source
- Using pressure of propane and air
- Easily portable / transportable
- Available in a range of sizes for different projects
- No need to change jets etc. in cookers, heaters…….
- Without any complicated adjustments it produces a stable calorific value.
- The resource is LP gas which is easy to obtain so that we can use PA easily.
- It is convenient to carry and move because it is small and light.
- PA is safe because it automatically stops the resource gas supply if any problems should occur.
- It is easy to control the residual gas in cylinders because PA has a counter for this specific purpose.
Imagine an earthquake, an act of terrorism, general gas mains maintenance – the gas main to a number of houses, or a hospital, or emergency kitchen has been cut, broken, or just removed for replacement. You can’t use LPG as the jets in the appliances will need changing and you don’t have time for that.
The PA System takes LPG (propane) and mixes it with air producing at the outlet a synthetic gas with the equivalent burning properties and wobbe index as Natural Gas. This system was a key lifeline throughout recent disasters in Japan, but the PA is not just for disaster relief.
General maintenance work can cut-off gas supplies for minutes, hours, days. Disruption to family life, work environments, hospitals and schools can all be kept to a minimum with the temporary replacement of supply using the Ito Corporation PA System.
Cogeneration using Natural Gas to supply both heat and power requires a backup – the PA Systemcan provide this and again uses no electricity.
This world is full of variety and these diversities include gas. There are wide country differences in mix within LPG and also the blend of Natural Gas in use. The PA requires exact matching of both source and target gas to ensure correct, most efficient, safe and highest quality burning.

There is no European Norme for this type of product we therefore contacted BSI Laboratories who designed a testing regime for the system based upon the individual products conforming to the appropriate EN Standards and also performance and safety testing of the whole system. This testing process has been carried out rigorously throughout this year (2012) and we now have full approval for it’s sale throughout Europe. The individual component regulators have also been certified to EN13785.

The LPG Opportunity
The World LPG Association recently undertook to produce a report on the opportunities afforded by Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) Generators, the ITO Europe was asked to contribute and gladly offered the benefit of the Corporations knowledge. Download your copy here
