Who Handles The Replacement Of My Electric And Gas Meter Box?

Who Handles The Replacement Of My Electric And Gas Meter Box?

I need a gas meter box replacement/my meter box is broken. What do I do?


Unless your meter box is still covered under the warranty, it is ultimately down to you to replace your meter box or meter box door at your own expense.

If your meter box is damaged in any way, it is advised to get this sorted straight away because the longer the gas meter is exposed to the elements, the higher the risk of permanent damage to the meter.

Here at Gas Equipment Direct, we offer a range of electric meter boxes, gas meter boxes and replacement meter box doors, covers and lids. If you cannot find the replacement door for your meter box on our website, please give us a call and we will be happy to help.

Which gas regulator do I need?

Which gas regulator do I need?

There are a number of questions that always come up when searching for a gas regulator; which regulator for calor gas, which gas regulator for BBQ, which regulator for propane tank etc.

Here at Gas Equipment Direct, our aim is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to find the exact regulator they require.

We offer several low-pressure regulators including Propane regulators, Butane regulators, Handwheel Propane regulators and Camping Gas regulators. We also offer high pressure regulators for certain appliances and pheasant rearing, both of which require a larger operating pressure and capacity.

All our regulators are colour coded to match the corresponding cylinder colours. Our butane regulators are blue in colour to match butane gas cylinders and our propane regulators are red in colour to match the red propane gas cylinders.

The first thing you will need to do is decide which gas cylinder you will be using. Although we can offer advise on this depending on your appliance and set-up, we would suggest speaking to a gas cylinder supplier or a gas registered engineer first if you are unsure. If you are purchasing a BBQ, you can also seek advice from the store. Once you know whether you require a Butane or a Propane regulator, the next step is deciding which regulator to purchase in this range.

CALOR:

Patio Gas:
5kg Propane 27mm clip on Propane Regulator
13kg Propane 27mm clip on Propane Regulator

Butane:
4.5kg 28-30Mbar Butane Regulator
7kg Butane 21mm clip on Butane Regulator
15kg Butane - 21mm clip on Butane Regulator

Propane:
3.9kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
6kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
13kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
19kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
47kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator

FLOGAS:

Propane:
3.9kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
6kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
11kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
19kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator
47kg 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator

Butane:

7kg (Yellow) - 21mm clip on Butane Regulator
13kg 21mm clip on Butane Regulator
13kg (Yellow) - 21mm clip on Butane Regulator

If you require a high-pressure regulator for example 50mbar or 16bar, or a regulator for pheasant rearing, please contact us for further advice. Please also contact us for advice on specific caravan regulators and non-regulating adaptors.

Please note that Propane gas cylinders contain considerably greater pressure than Butane cylinders and as a result, regulators are designed for use with either Propane or Butane and are not interchangeable because of their different design pressures and the different connections on the cylinder itself.

To find the correct regulator for an existing appliance, please check the appliance data sheet or examine the appliance itself. There should be a data plate or instruction manual stating the required output and inlet pressure. If you have this information, then please feel free to contact us and we will point you in the right direction.

How exactly do Automatic Changeovers work?

How exactly do Automatic Changeovers work? Gas Equipment Direct - Automatic Changeovers

Why are Automatic Changeovers beneficial?

Posted by: Jess Speed

Gas Equipment Direct offer a vast range of both manual and automatic changeover regulators. Whether you are looking for a 2 cylinder changeover or a 4 cylinder changeover, we offer everything you will need to connect your gas cylinder/s to your appliance. Automatic changeover systems can be found in static homes, domestic installations, boats and holiday homes.

Why should you purchase an automatic changeover over a manual changeover? The simple answer is, automatic changeovers ensure a continuous gas supply to the installation, and automatically switch to the reserve cylinder/s when the pressure falls in the supply cylinder.

Once the system has been fully set-up by a registered gas technician and is ready to go, the black lever will be pointing to the supply cylinder/s and the window on the changeover regulator will be clear in colour. Once the supply cylinder/s are empty, the automatic changeover will automatically switch to the reserve cylinder/s and the window will turn red. When you see that the window is red in colour, you will need to turn the black lever so it is now pointing to the cylinder/s where the gas is being supplied from. You should then disconnect the empty cylinder/s and replace them with full cylinders, so they are in place and ready to use when the reserve cylinder/s have run out of gas. This cycle will keep repeating itself, and you will need to make sure that you keep changing the lever position when required so you always know which side the gas is coming from.

Please note that in some cases, when the gas cylinder/s are delivered, the driver will turn the black lever for you, so if you have already done this, please let them know.

Having an automatic changeover is extremely beneficial as you will always have a constant gas supply and you will not need to worry about constantly changing your cylinder/s or running out of gas.

All our regulators have been tested and meet the latest European and British Standards.
