natural gas vs. proprane regulator
I AM TRYING TO CONVERT A RADIANT TUBE HEATING SYSTEM TO PROPRANE. IS THERE A DIFFERNENC BETWEEN NATURAL GAS REGULATOR AND A PROPANE REGULATOR. I KNOW THE ORIFICE SIZES ARE DIFFERENT, BUT DO I NEED A DIFFERENT GAS VALVE AND REGULATOR.
I changed the orifices in my natural gas stove, my only gas appliance, to accept propane. The gas company then disconnected their supply, removed the meter AND regulator (you'll notice that theirs is a relatively large regulator). I then fitted a standard propane tank and regulator - same as BBQ type. Works just fine and nobody has told me that I did the wrong thing - yet!
Hope that helps. Alan
