Pipe Dope for Deep Fryer Wed, 10/2/13 5:00 PM (permalink)
I recently had a flex hose for LPG made to connect to the gas connection fitting for mt Pitco fryer.  Is there any reason NOT to use pipe dope when I connect them?

    I use Keytite brand compound on Lp and Ng connections , never use thread tape on a gas connection , if a piece of tape breaks loose from the connection it will restrict or block your gas flow. I usually do not use any dope on a quality NPT fitting , but I would use it on pipe.

      Thats exactly what I had read about, dope getting into the gas line, but often these references seem to more towards NG lines that LPG lines.
      Thanks for the input.
