A propane gas regulator is an important part of the propane gas system. It helps control the flow and distribution of propane gas from the tank to the appliance. This safety valve separates the appliance from the high pressure of the tank.
There are different types of propane gas regulators because each is designed for the specific type of appliance to which the gas tank is connected. The demand downstream of the regulator determines the type and position of the regulator in a propane gas system. Propane gas regulators are available in different types such as high pressure regulators, first stage regulators and integral two-stage regulators.
