Re: Propane regulator
there are a number of regulators made by RegO section A of the catalog,
I noted one with a 1.25" out A 16, and one a few pages later with a 1" A18
another of there catalogs with the regulators in it,
a service manual a lot of info,
depending on the draw rate out of the tank your tank may need to be larger than average if you have a high draw rate, as the propane evaporates it cools and can cool it self to the point that it will not vaporize adequately for the appliance or the need. so there is a balancing act of the vapor draw and the tank size, (and the cooler the ambient temps are the more the problem is).
many new applications use a two stage system of a
I will call it a medium pressure and then a low pressure regulator at the or near the appliance but outside of the building,
Propane also is usually a higher pressure than NG, and the BTU is different as well, so one will have to have a propane conversion jets and possibly some parts for the valve or internal regulator, also make sure the appliance is rated for use with propane.
