Low Pressure Gas Regulators

 Six ounces is the normal working gas pressure of most residential barbecue grills.  Check your instruction manual to see the btu/hr rating of your grill.   If it does not exceed 100,000 btu/hr then a preset low pressure propane regulator is probably what you should be using.  Consult the manufacturer's product manual. 

How are the GasHosesandRegulators.com low pressure gas regulators any different than what is customarily sold at Home Depot, Lowe's, or from those included as original equipment with most gas grills?    GasHosesandRegulators.com  sells the M.B. Sturgis brand of low pressure regulators designed with 3/8" ID gas regulator outlets and 3/8" ID grey, AGA-approved gas hoses rather than the customary regulators with 1/4" ID gas outlets and with 1/4" ID black hoses.  The 1/4" ID type are usually found on most backyard gas grills or are offered for sale at the Depots as replacement equipment.  A larger gas regulator outlet ID of 3/8", going all the way from the regulator to the appliance permits an amazing increase in delivery of 2.25 times the VOLUME of gas to your appliance!  These are preset regulators so you can't change the pressure, but you can change the volume of gas available to your appliance if it needs it.  So, if you think your low pressure gas appliance is just not getting enough gas, the problem could be the diameter size of the regulator output and the hose delivering the gas.  A regulator with a 3/8" ID diameter gas regulator outlet and a 3/8" ID grey hose is going to it make a lot more gas available to the appliance.  Upgrade.  Don't starve your grill of fuel!   You still control the amount of gas used in the same manner, i.e., with the gas control knob on your appliance.

Manual Tank Changeover Valve with Stainless Steel Over Braid Hoses

 

 MANCSS Manual Tank Changeover Valve with Stainless Steel Over Braid Hoses  67.95

 Compact Low Pressure Propane Twin Stage Regulator  This compact regulator combines first and second stage regulators into a single unit.  Designed to reduce tank pressure down to a preset 11" WC delivery pressure.  Manually adjustable from 9" to 13" WC. The compact design makes it the ideal choice for small domestic applications requiring slightly higher gas volumes than available from normal low pressure checks.  The gas inlet is a standard Full Flow tank connector with a soft nose POL (model 204051).  The outlet connection is 1/2" FNPT.  Flexible 1/2" ID low pressure outlet gas hoses may be found on our Natural Gas Hose webpage.  Optional GR-905 Mounting Bracket is shown below.  Dimensions: 7.5"L x 4.25"W x 3.25"H.  Weight 1# 13.4 oz. Free shipping.

 Why use a twin stage regulator?  The first stage of a twin stage low pressure regulator brings the unregulated tank pressure down to a constant 10 PSI.  This helps the second stage maintain a neat constant 11" WC gas delivery to your appliances.  (these dual stage type regulators are required by Federal code on all RV's.  They compensate for the varying tank pressures inside the propane tank and insure an even pressure on the delivery side regardless of the varying demand for gas.)  This method of low pressure regulation has an added benefit of greatly reducing the possibilities of freeze-ups, which would otherwise likely occur more frequently as the btu/hr demand increases.

 First Stage and Second Stage Low Pressure Custom Assembly  For situations where you intend to have a portable propane tank close to the house or very near a propane fueled generator, a First Stage and Second Stage Custom Assembly which is already plumbed together may be very convenient. Also, for stand alone emergency generators which rely on portable tanks, this pre-mounted assembly is ideal. The large capacity first stage regulator (RED) pictured at right is factory set at 10 psig. It is equipped with an integral relief valve and built-in 1/8" FNPT pressure gauge tap. The adjustment range, (normally not necessary), is 5-10 psig. Output capacity is 2,500,000 btu/hr. The second stage regulator (GREY) pictured at right is factory set at 11" WC. The adjustment range is 9 to 13" WC. It is also equipped with an integral relief valve and a built-in 1/8" FNPT pressure gauge tap. Tejas Smokers has fabricated a complete assembly including a 60" x 1/4"ID high pressure thermoplastic rubber hose outfitted with a 204051 Full Flow POL tank connector. The two regulators are pre-mounted on a 12" x 12" aluminum panel. The panel has 1/4" diameter holes in each corner for easy installation. Everything is already plumbed together and all you have to do is mount it on a vertical surface with the two relief valves facing down. (The black relief valves are in black at bottom in the picture at the right.) The outlet threads on the Grey second stage regulator are 3/4" FNPT so either use 3/4"ID pipe or you can use flexible 3/4"ID low pressure gas hose at the outlet. Low pressure outlet gas hose may be found on our Natural Gas Hose webpage. Dimensions: 12"L x 12"W x 5"H. Weight 10 # 9.6 oz. Free shipping.

950,000 btu/hr maximum output  For almost any size house using portable tanks.

 

GR9189212  First Stage and Second Stage Low Pressure Custom Assembly  275.00

 First Stage (high pressure) Regulator When the supply tank must be installed a long distance from the point of use of the gas then installation of the First Stage (high pressure) Regulator separately from the Second Stage (low pressure) Regulator may be advantageous in order to avoid noticeable pressure drops in the gas delivery downstream. The large capacity first stage regulator (RED) pictured at right is factory set at 10 psig. The adjustment range, (normally not necessary), is 5-10 psig. It is equipped with an integral relief valve and built-in 1/8" FNPT pressure gauge tap. Outfitted with a #204051 Full Flow POL tank connector which has 1/4" MNPT inlet. Gas outlet is 1/2" FNPT.
