Propane Tank Parts
The visible parts of the propane tank as shown in the picture above play a vital role in the usability and serviceability of the gas tank. All of these parts are attached to the tank at the manufacturer with threaded fittings. These specialized propane tank parts consist of the following replaceable fittings and connections.
Filler Valve - Point at which hose from delivery truck is attached to the tank for re-fueling
Relief Valve - Safety relief mechanism designed to vent propane in an over-pressure situation
Service (Shut Off) Valve - Point at which propane is converted to vapor for use with appliance(s)
Fixed Liquid Level % Gauge - Indicates the level of propane is at or above 80% capacity
Float Gauge- Presents a visible indication of the propane volume in the tank. Also called a dial gauge
Vapor Return Valve - Connection used during propane delivery to remove excess tank pressure
Liquid Withdrawal Valve - Used to withdraw liquid propane from the tank
Things to Keep in Mind with Propane Repairs or Modifications
Only propane companies and professionals have access to tools and equipment that can properly diagnose and identify problems within a propane gas system. They also have the experience.
Buying tools, parts and supplies from the local hardware store to make household repairs is something we're all accustomed to because of the availability and convenience of large stores like Home Depot, Lowe's and others. Books about hazardous and dangerous household subjects such as electricity are readily available but finding a book on propane repairs or LP Gas troubleshooting is quite difficult. The reason being is that trying to repair your own propane system isn't advisable, nor is it safe. Some tools and parts that appear to be similar to the parts on your propane system can be readily found but if they aren't designed for LP Gas use, they can place your family in a potentially dangerous situation.
