How does the LPG Regulator Work?
Can anyone please explain how the LPG regulator works – or link to a site which does?
The problem I have is that every few seconds, a small burst of gas seems to be expelled from one of the two small holes in the side of the regulator body and I would like to understand the purpose of these holes before buying a new regulator.
If the operation is similar to a diving regulator then the small holes are to admit ambient pressure air to the non-LPG gas side of the diaphragms. Is this the same on the LPG regulator?
I could understand that if a diaphragm had a hole in it then gas would escape but I can’t understand why the escape seems to be intermittent.
The regulator is the one that came with the motorhome – 30mb fixed to the bulkhead. All the gas appliances still work OK.
