What is the pressure of a Cambodian cooking gas bottle?

Post by prettyvacant » Thu Nov 22, 2018 8:31 pm

I am bringing over a cooking device from abroad. I can choose 3 different "regulators" (or whatever they are called).
Which one would be most suited for a Cambodian LPG cooking gas bottle?
Pressure: 30mbar
Range: 1.5kg/h
or
Pressure: 11WC
Range: 70k BTU
or
Pressure: 2.8Kpa
Range: 2kg/h

Thx

Buy a regulator here in Cambodia.

I'd rather get one for free from the manufacturer, so it would be beneficial to know what the pressure is in a Cambodian LPG bottle

Try this for size:

According to the publication NFPA58, a propane tank with 20 pounds (5 Gal) of gas at 70°F would have a pressure of 145 psi; at 90°F pressure would increase to 180 psi; at 105°F pressure continues to rise to 235 psi, and at 130°F pressures of 315 psi would be reached.Feb 6, 2017

And if you don't believe it, just put your own pressure gauge on a full cylinder and note the ambient temperature.

Far better to ask a cylinder refiller that to take guestimates off forum members.

You can just as easily find the same information for Kg weight cylinders and other pressure systems such as bar or kpa.
