Newbie Propane Questions

Unread postAuthor: IWish4A69Camaro » Wed Jul 19, 2006 10:47 am

Hey guys this is my first post here, I have looked all around the site and read several of the how-to's and other stuff but I want to make sure I have this propane deal down before I go sticking it on my gun. so here goes......

I think the flow of things should go like this, if anyone has a diagram of this setup a link would be appreciated.

Should have a throw away propane tank which feeds into hose one of several different ways -> this all goes up to a regulator to maintain some constant pressure in the meter pipe -> then there is a ball valve -> then the meter pipe which the size can be calculated with a calculator I saw -> then another ball valve -> then if feeds into the combustion chamber.

is this the right series of parts, did I leave something out or do I have to many things in there?

Also question #2 I would think with a regulator this would be a fairly quick deal between shots. should be open the tank with #1 ball valve closed and achieve desired pressure, then turn tank off and open ball valve one and acheive pressure again, then close ball valve one and open ball valve 2 then close ball valve 2 and kaboom. is this right or wrong?

Thanks guys for helping me out with these dumb newbie questions.

Note: there are fittings you can't see. This is just a rough drawing.
