Which gas regulator do I need?

Thereare a number of questions that always come up when searching for a gasregulator; which regulator for Calor gas, which gas regulator for BBQ, whichregulator for propane tank etc. Here at Gas Equipment Direct, our aim is to make it as easy aspossible for our customers to find the exact regulator they require.

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

All our regulators are colour coded to match the correspondingcylinder colours. Our butane regulators are blue in colour to match butane gascylinders and our propane regulators are red in colour to match the red propanegas cylinders.

The first thing you will need to do is decide which gas cylinderyou 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 aButane or a Propane regulator, the next step is deciding which regulator topurchase in this range.

Standard Propane

Bottles3.9kg Propane: 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator

Calor - Patio Gas

5kg Propane: 27mm clip on Propane Regulator

Flogas3.9kg Propane: 37Mbar Standard Propane Regulator

7kg Butane (Yellow Bottle): 21mm clip on Butane Regulator

13kg Butane(Yellow Bottle): 21mm clip on Butane Regulator

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.
