Keeping the gas flowing

Recommended Posts

How do you guys keep gas going to your heater. It seems like either i dont have good pressure or I'm sucking too much gas off my 20lb tank. I have a garage heater Procom for the wall. If it flames out and you let it sit for a while then it will run agian. Is it simple as to get a bigger tank?

Sounds like you may be pulling too much gas and the bottle is freezing up. Is it that big of a heater? You may need a bigger bottle if that's the case.

I agree with waterbeater . The problem is usually amplified with colder weather. Try a 100 pounder.

Something that is a wall mount that you feel is sufficient enough to heat your garage can not run on a 20lb'er. It might run for a bit, but is flowing at too high a rate and it ends up freezing as the liquid is vaporizing to a gas.

You need somethign with a much larger capacity and probably a better regulator.

You're pulling too much material out too fast. You're using up too much of the total volume at once. The small tank can't keep up.

I have a 28000 procom. It is proably the tank. Thing is it ran fairly well when it was 30 35 degrees. It must make a big differance at 20 degrees or less. I do have a 40lb tank I ran it with when I had it at our old place and it ran good BUT I had it in a box outside the garage not sure if that kept it just warm enough? It even [PoorWordUsage]s out on the low setting after a while I thought it would run on low. It has a Low Med High.
