Frequently asked questions

How do I connect my butane cylinder?

These are supplied with either 20 or 21mm connections. It is important to check both cylinder and regulator to ensure compatibility. An instruction disc fixed over the cylinder valve will show this information and the regulator also has the size recorded on the specification disc.

Connection: First ensure that the cylinder is placed on a firm base. If for use within a cabinet heater, for example, it is advisable to connect the regulator with the cylinder outside the cabinet. When this is done, the cylinder can then be placed within the cabinet.

Pick up the regulator, having first ensured the control lever is in the horizontal position, and place over the cylinder valve. With a firm downward action, push the regulator onto the valve until a metallic click signifies it is locked on. This may require one or two attempts before the connection is achieved.
