Gas Ring Regulator

I recently purchased a single ring gas burner and it came with a short hose, a regulator and what appears to be a 3/4 inch screw-in connector.

My problem is that I want to connect this burner to a gas bottle mounted on the roof of my cruiser. which will require at least a two metre hose and I am having trouble sourcing such a hose.

I do have a smaller diameter hose (I think it is a primus brand) but it has no regulator, nor does the 2kg bottle it fits.

Does the gas ring need a regulator or is a regulator only required on bottles 4kg and greater?

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Peter F.

Hi Peter
Any BBQ regulator will do, not too sure if a 2m hose is legal Bar-B-Que's Galore have a range of hoses but don't remember if they went that long
I have been told its illegal to join two hoses together not sure why?
Check with your local BBQ store
Hope this helps Kev

G'day, I just had a gas hose made to enable the gas bottle to stay in the holder. I used a Hydraulic & Pneumatic hose place in Gippsland, they used the existing fittings, attached the new hose and crimped them together. Maybe find same sort of business around your area. Good luck.

Thanks John, hadn't thought of that - what size cylinder do you have on the roof and do you use a regulator?

i can't see a 2 mtr long hose being illegal, as our camper trailer (well known Australian made brand) comes standard with one about that length which allows the gas bottle on the drivers side to be used for the kitchen on the passenger side.

Peter,

BCF stock a 2.4 M hose, just checked their website. They also have 1200, 1500 & 1800 mm length hoses. Didn't check if all these would suit your fittings, but they also have heaps of different fittings.

Peter, I use a 4.5 kg bottle and small regulator built into one of the fittings.

And, Yes, it will need a regulator. A burner ring has jets designed for low pressure gas. Running it without a regulator will have flames 3 foot high.

Hello Peter

There was a thread nine years ago that provides an answer to your question regarding regulators - Gas Bottle Regulators what are they for?

I think you will need one - nothing to do with gas bottle size but jet size in your appliance. Very small jets dont need regulators (e.g. some Primus gear) as despite the high pressure, release of gas is restricted. Gas rings typically have large jets so regulation required or they won't work properly. No doubt some more knowledgeable people will provide addition, more detailed advice.

Cheers
Greg
