Default Propane Quick Disconnect?

I'm starting a 3 tier sculpture build. It'll be horizontal in nature (i.e. not the tree style 3 tier), but I plan on making the 3rd tier removable to save on storage space.

That said, since the 3rd tier will have a burner for the HLT, I'm curious if there's a propane quick-disconnect that can handle the psi of the banjo burner?

Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

are you planning to run everything from a single propane tank and just need a disconnect for the line?

The quick disconnect used for natural gas on barbecues will also work for propane.

I'm a propane service tech, I've seen disconnects at trade shows but I'm not sure where you can get one retail. I guess google is ur friend

I had a QD on a ducane gas grill I used to have. I'd assume that anywhere that sells ducane would have something like that. Actually, I think ducane was bought by weber, so just try a grill store?

You can use normal air compressor quick disconnects. The seals in them are almost always buna-n, which is compatible with propane.

Any reason a standard airline disconnect won't work for propane if it's after the regulator? 30psi is 30psi right? I regularly use mine above 100psi on my air compressor without problem. Just a thought, I don't know if it would be appropriate due to it being propane though?
