Which gas regulator do I need?

Background SVG

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 advice on this depending on your appliance and set-up, we would suggest speaking to a gas cylinder supplier or agas 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.

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.
