Fuel 90° Gas Regulator Adaptor – LH (Left handed thread)

The 90° Fuel Regulator adaptor with LH thread, functions to allow bottom-inlet regulators to fit into side outlet Acetylene / Propane cylinders, with gauges in the vertical position.

 

Some cylinder manufacturers now produce bottles that require the regulator to be connected to the bottle from the side. The 90° adaptors allow this to happen by keeping the regulator the right way up. This is so that the pressure control knob and gauges are always in view.

The adaptor is a cost-effective alternative to purchasing a specialised back or side-inlet regulator, which can be more expensive. Turning a bottom-inlet regulator on its back to connect it to a side-outlet cylinder is not advisable as this can put unnecessary strain on the inlet stem, preventing the user from seeing the gauge readings. The use of a 90° adaptor helps to avoid such difficulties.

 

The adaptor is available with a RH thread for oxygen and argon cylinders or with a LH thread for fuel gas cylinders.
