Propane Regulator

Unread postAuthor: ZealousAlcoholic » Wed Jul 12, 2006 7:05 pm

I am having a hard time finding a propane regulator, and I don't think I know what to look for. Any names or links would be greatly appreciated.

Could I rig up a paintball regulator? Or is there something special about a propane regulator?

Thanks in advance!

Just use any air compressor regulator becuase the propane bottles only have 90psi pressure in them so a usual compressor regulator is what i use.

Or you can use Mr. Heater part #F273719<--I think That's it, not sure though. It is a regulator meant for propane and is very consistent.

On air compressor regulators it specifically states to not be used for bottled gas. This is because there is a small hole that is used in regulation process that will leak a small steady stream of propane. This normally wont be a problem of you becoming a fireball, but is annoying in the fact of the smell. Simply answered, the pneumatic regulator will work.

On a side note I plan on making a homemade regulator of mine when ever I get a lathe...
