Propane Two Stage Regulators
Two stage regulators
The pressure of propane gas in a system reacts to temperature changes, rising and falling with temperature. A pressure regulator is needed to maintain a constant delivery pressure to your gas appliances at all times.
The propane regulator is the heart of the propane system. Take care to protect it from the elements which could cause it to malfunction. Regulators need to be installed and protected so as to prevent the vent's clogging due to rain, snow, sleet, ice, condensation or road spray. To prevent the regulator from being exposed to these conditions, special shielding protection must be provided.
CAUTION - ALWAYS BE SURE THAT THE REGULATOR VENT IS POINTING DOWN WITHIN 45 DEGREES OF VERTICAL.
A blocked regulator vent could result in excessive gas pressure to appliances, or regulator failure, which could result in injury or property damage.
NOTE: Do not attempt to repair a regulator – call your propane gas dealer if service is required.
Preventing regulator freeze-ups
The propane system should be kept free of moisture which could cause regulator freeze-up. A good regulator enclosure will protect your regulator.
Moisture in the fuel can cause the regulator to freeze up. When storing portable cylinders, keep the cylinder valve closed and POL plug in place to help keep moisture out of the tank. If you suspect the presence of moisture, have your propane dealer inject methyl alcohol into your cylinder or tank before refilling.
