portable propane heaters
« on: Feb 10, 2016, 10:52 AM »
I'm sure that everyone that reads this has a portable heater that they use somewhere, I have many, buddy heaters, coleman, some I don't know the name of but they are propane. I recently received 2 sunflower heaters that have a regulator? that allows you to hook it up to a 1lb propane tank. There's no way the tank will hold the weight of this heater, some kind of bracket would have to be bought or made to hold it up. Another thing, do these sunflower heaters need a low pressure regulator like what's on a grill to operate, or are they just plumbed into a propane tank and used that way. I'm attaching a pic of the regulator so you can see what I'm talking about. The sunflower heaters are old, I've never had a use for one so I don't know anything about them although I have seen them on 20lb tanks.

Could the whole heater be mounted on a metal frame like this?

I think LoneWolf had some modification pictures that might show the stand better.  Not sure if sunflower uses the same...

The link is for a Mr. Heater 75318P stand.  On the back of the reflector there is two metal tabs that slide over the vertical upside down "U" on the stand.  Here is how the MH mounts to the stand. Picture stolen from shamelessly from Lonewolf...

catching them is easy, finding them is the hard part.
