converting NG toLP Fri, 12/6/13 11:43 AM (permalink)
Hey, I have a griddle and a deep fryer that I bought used from a restaurant, so I'm assuming they are natural gas. Do I just need a regulator? or is there more to it.

      Don't 'assume' any thing.  Look up the manufacture and model number of the equipment and follow their instructions.    You need to know the type of burners and the orifice size before good or correct advice can be given here.

          I recently converted a fryer that I bought used and was assured that it ran on LPG, It did not. I had to purchase the pilot orifice and 3 burner orifices, I also had to purchase a new safety/combo valve. It was not inexpensive. The valve was bad. If I didn't have to replace the valve it would have been roughly 90$ to convert. It does indeed depend on the brand, some valves can be converted with a spring change, some cannot.
