Post Subject: Gas valve installation

Hi, im currently installing the LPG gas supply to the oven and hob in my NB rebuild and want to fit a 12v gas valve inline , so basically would like to find out the normal gas line pressure to make sure i purchase the correct valve. the valve im looking at is an Elekrogas 1/4 in BSP with a pressure range of 0-0.1 bar?

Unfortunately you put me in a very difficult position. The Boat Safety Scheme demands that gas work is undertaken by "a competent person" and if the boat is to be for hire or a livaboard even stricter qualifications may be required. If you are building to comply with the RCD you will need access to and to understand a whole sheath of ISO/BS standards. Now your question shows that you are unlikely to be competent so if I give you any information that might be construed in encouraging you I could be held libel if there is an accident. I am unwilling to take that risk. In any case the pressure is different for butane and propane. Remember the regulator is what controls the pressure and its documents might give the basic pressure setting. Sorry.

hi Tony, sorry to put you in an awkward position, whilst i realize the installation has to be carried out by a competent person, and not a complete numpty, i was trying to achieve a double safe outcome by installing the 12v valve in conjuntion with the other safety devices already being thought about, ie bubble tester and low pressure switch. I have found out myself the LPG line pressure from the particular regulator im using and the valve ill be using is more than adequate. thanks nigel
