Propane Tank Regulators - Size Matters!

Propane Tank Regulators - Size Matters

It does not matter whether you have a large propane tank or a small 5 gallon propane cylinder, almost all applications require a pressure regulator.   A word of caution - one size does not fit all applications.  One regulator may work well on a gas grill but may be too small for a home heating system. Always seek the assistance of a certified gas technician.  

What propane facts are considered by a certified gas technician?  

  • Total BTUs requirement of all gas burning appliances connected to the propane tank.
  • Distance of travel from the propane tank or propane cylinder to each appliance.
  • Diameter of the propane gas line.
  • Manufacturer recommended pressure requirements.

Propane regulators guidelines you need to know.

  • Propane regulators are manufactured for a variety of applications.
  • Some deliver 10 psi while others deliver 11 inchs of water column (approxiamated 1/2 psi)
  • Some are single stage and others are two stage.

Propane Safety Lesson:  Don't try to install your own propane gas line and/or appliances.  Get help from a professional.
