How do I connect my butane cylinder?

All Flogas butane cylinders have either a 20mm or 21mm valve, so they need be fitted with the correct clip-on regulator. You can double check the size of the regulator by looking on the inside of the regulator.

Different heaters are supplied with different types of regulators, so refer to the heaters instructions if you are using a different regulator.

Make sure the hose coming from the heater is correctly connected to the regulator and they are clean and not damaged.

Make sure the switch on the regulator is in the off position. Turn clockwise into the 3 o’clock position.

Remove the protective cap from the gas cylinder

Place the regulator onto the valve and press down firmly until you hear a metallic click signifying the collar has locked onto the valve.

We recommend connecting your gas bottle outside of the portable heater and only placing it inside when it’s ready to use

To start using your heater, turn the regulator anti-clockwise so it’s in the 12 o’clock position.

The gas is now on. Light your portable heater as advised by the manufacturer’s instructions.

When you’ve finished using your heater, turn the switch on the regulator clockwise to the 3 o’clock position to turn the heater off.

We recommend turning the heater off at the regulator every time, this will burn off any residual gas left in the heater. If your heater has a power switch, you can also turn this off.

If you need to change your empty gas bottle, turn off the regulator and push in the button on the regulator to easily lift it off the bottle. It is now safe to replace your gas bottle.
