Additional Information

  • The size of your propane tank DOES MATTER! It is VERY important. It is important for the following reason: The larger the tank the higher the VAPORIZATION rate of the liquid propane.
  • The liquid propane uses the temperature difference between it s boiling point (-44 degree F) and the outside temperature to create vaporization. When the tank is initially filled with liquid propane (80%-85% maximum) some of the liquid vaporizes into propane gas until an equilibrium is reached. The gas is withdrawn from the tank, the pressure is lowered below that of equilibrium, lowering the boiling point of the liquid. This causes more vaporization of the liquid into gas.
  • Other things are factors too, such as ambient air temperature, and how full the tank is. The higher the temperature, the higher the pressure in the tank is, which translates to higher BTU output. Same goes for how full the tank is. Below is a good chart showing you BTU/hour based on size and outside temperatures.
  • Bottom line, it s very important that you have proper gas flow, to make sure your equipment runs correctly. You will not get the performance from your equipment that you would like. Connecting 2 propane tanks will fix your issue caused by a lack of BTU s to your cooking equipment.
  • 100lb tank
  • 0 degrees = 113,000 btu
  • 20 degrees = 167,000 btu
  • 40 degrees = 214,000 btu
  • 60 degrees = 277,000 btu
  • 70 degrees = 300,000 btu max btu rating at 70 degrees
  • What is the vaporization rate of the tank? Vaporization rate is the rate at which the propane liquid is boiled off to propane gas. The small the tank and the colder the temperature the lower the vaporization rate. Vaporization rate is the MOST IMPORTANT of these factors.
  • The 100 lb propane tank is mainly used for temporary heat. Many construction companies use the 100 lb tank for high-output construction heaters. The 100 lb propane tank can also be used for small residential applications such as a cottage, garage or small building. The 100 lb propane tank holds 23.4 gallons of propane and weighs 180 lbs full.
