Propane Regulator Uses

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Wed Oct 04, 2006 8:34 pm

I recently scavenged a propane regulator off a grill we threw away, I was wonder if it could serve any purpose other than to regulate propane. What is the setting on a standar regulator, what pressure does it bring it down to? I'm just wondering if I could use this for something pneumatic.

im pretty sure those regulators are sealed and set to deliver somewhere between 5-15 psi for gas grill uses. Most of them cant be adjusted as far as i know and really dont serve much of a purpose for spud guns unless you have a very large volume meter pipe.

I think they would work good for a pilot light on a flamethrower though :)

I also have several regulators of the same and was wondering if they could be used. I am going to experiment with them over the next few days and I will let you know my results. They are so easy to get and with the fittings and hose, I hope someone can find a way to use them on a pneumatic.
