Which Gas Regulator , 5 of the most popular

If you've  purchased your new gas stove or cooker and now it's time to choose your gas and regulator we have a few tips to help you through the process.  

Your new gas appliance will usually need butane gas , this can be either Campingaz or Calor Gas they are both Butane  , the pro's and con's of either ... Calor can be a little cheaper to buy and can be a little more accessible here in the UK - Campingaz is great for when space is a consideration , their cylinders are available in 3 sizes and are a little more compact. Campingaz can be a little harder to get hold of here in the UK but much more widely available in Europe. 

Once you have chosen your gas it's time to select your regulator , here at IBEX Camping we have a great range of Gas Regulators for both campers and caravanners. Our main supplier is Contintental  Product Engineering based in Norfolk. Each carries the important EN16129 Approved. 

The most popular gas Regulators are the Continental R716-CG designed for use with Campingaz 901 , 904 and 907 gas cylinders 

The Continental R37SN Screw Fit Propane Regulator designed for use with calor and Flogas 3.9, 6, 11, 13, 15 and 47kg propane gas Cylinders 

The Continental R29b Bolt on Butane regulator designed to fit 4.5kg Calor Butane Cylinders 

For Caravaners we find the following regulators popular 

The Continental RC027P Clip on Propane Regultor designed for use with Calor Patio Gas 5 and 13kg Gas Cylinders and Flogas 10kg Gaslight Cylinders 

The Continental RC021B Clip on 21mm Butane Gas Regulator designed to be used with Calor 7 and 15kg Calor And Flogas 7 and 13kg Butane (Yellow Cylinders Only) 

Alway follow your manufacturers instructions and guidance, the team @ IBEX Camping are always happy to help if you have any questions or need a little advice. 

Can use disposible gas with my gas stove that requires refillable gas? the answer is yes , we now stock a IGT Gas regulatorA500i  that allows the use of screw fit disposible gas with your camping stove or appliance , it's worth remembering though that this isn't the most economical way to run your appliance.  Disposible gas canisters tend to hold around 400g making them a little costly for larger gas appliances. 

The most important thing to remember is that it's your chosen gas cylinder (must be compatible with your appliance) that determines your gas regulator. 

Don't forget your Gas hose and Jubilee Clips ... most camping gas appliances aren't supplied with these but they are readily avilable.  A gas spanner is really handy too for the Butane R29B and Propane R37SN
