Portable Propane using 20# Cylinders and Larger
Propane 20# cylinders can be used to operate a generator portably. This is useful for all of the Kits available from our website. We have a hose kit for all kits to allow use of portable propane cylinders.
A common question we are asked is what pressure is my propane tank? Or what kit should I order, high or low pressure? The following should be helpful:
PROPANE CYLINDER LEGEND
BLACK AREA: Represents liquid propane which actually is as perfectly clear as water.
YELLOW AREA: Represents the vapor space and vapor is actually colorless.
YELLOW BUBBLES: Represent the vapor that is created when propane boils.
PROPANE TERMS FOR CYLINDERS AND TANKS*
Other Characteristics of Propane and propane systems
The size of the cylinder, how full it is, and the outside air temperature, all determine what size generator can be operated with any given cylinder.
As a general rule of thumb, a 10 horsepower engine will run fine on a 20# grill type cylinder if the ambient air temperature is above freezing. Larger engines require a larger cylinder. We have a device called a TC-18 that ties two cylinders together if needed which more than double the vaporization rate of two cylinders.
*For simplicity, this article uses the term "tank" to refer to either type of vessel since the terms are synonymous. Statements made about regulators and other industry equipment is not absolute and does not qualify or restrict any device but are used for the sake of a basic discussion.
