Low Pressure Regulator Question
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi All-

I am in the works of building a new brew system/stand. I am going the low pressure route with Honeywell VR8200's for BK, MT & HLT. I am planning on having a common low pressure header and then splitting off for the 3 burners w/ individual isolation valves, VR8200's, flex hose and orifice/control valve.

The drawing I attached is similar but slightly different than what I am thinking now:

To feed the header, I was thinking about using this:
http://www.brewershardware.com/LPG-r...th-5-hose.html

Has anybody had experience with it? Will it supply enough gas for 2 burners at once? Anybody know the BTU rating on it?

Do you think this is a good route to go or should I use a standard high pressure regulator and feed that to a Marshall 299-00?

Opionions on the matter would be much appreciated.
THANKS!

I decided to feed my Honeywell valves with individual low pressure regulators,
no worries about any fluctuations and how many burners are on.

Contact the vendor and compare the BTU requirements for all your burners to the supplied data.

Thanks. I was looking at those GOSS single stage regulators... How are those working out for you?

More than 14 years of service without a failure.

Cool. Do you know which GOSS you ordered? Was it the EP-60-0 (bottom of page)? Did you order it w/ a flare or not?

The regulators I use are all made by Precimex with the Goss sticker on it.
Part # 3001 http://www.propaneproducts.com/index...uct_detail&p=8

No fittings came with the regulators.
