Why do I have to connect my Heat-Flo™ Blow heater to a 45kg cylinder?

Can I use a hose extension for gas outlets?

We do not recommend using hose extensions as adding an extra hose on the line will increase the chance of a leak and/or breakage. Instead, replace the hose with a longer hose. At Bromic, we supply gas hoses up to 3000mm in length.

What is the Type 27 (LCC27) thread connection and how does this affect Type 21 (POL)?

In Australia, the Type 21 (POL) connection has been superseded by the LCC27 (Type 27) connection. LCC27 is now the standard connection used for leisure gas cylinder valves. Over a 10-year period, LCC27 will be phased in as old gas cylinders get re-tested and changed over. Read more

What hose can be used to connect my Bromic Lido Cooker to an LPG gas bottle?

Bromic Lido Junior Cookers must be used with a hose and regulator assembly (Part No. HJR hose + RPOL4W regulator not included)

Can portable cookers be used indoors or in a Caravan or RV?

In most cases, portable LPG barbeques and cookers cannot be used indoors – unless they are designed to do so.

The Bromic Lido Junior Cooker (2020068) is specifically designed for indoor and outdoor use in caravans, recreational vehicles and weekenders. This portable cooker includes a flame failure shut-off feature for extra safety. We also have a Lido Junior Cooker suitable for boats and marine craft. This handy cooker is supplied with searail and gimbal for stability.

How will the new LCC27 (Type 27) connection affect old gas appliances such as a BBQ or camping cooker?

If a customer purchases a new appliance with a new LCC27 hose connection, they will need to replace or swap their old LPG cylinder to a new one with an LCC27 (Type 27) valve. If a customer purchases a new cylinder with an LCC27 valve, they can still connect it with an LPG appliance (or hose assembly) that has the old POL connection as it is backwards compatible.

What are test point gas adaptors used for?

When gas is supplied for the first time or by a new supplier, the gas supplier must ensure that a test point is located on or immediately downstream from the regulator. This should be used to test for leaks and to pressure test the system.

Can adaptors be used to connect cylinders with a POL connection to appliances with an LCC27 (Type 27) connection and vice versa?

Gas adaptors must NOT be used to connect an appliance with a new connection to a cylinder with an old POL valve as they give an additional leakage risk. The change between threads means that when tightening one side of the adaptor, the other end is at risk of creating a new leak.

If a customer purchases a new gas appliance with the LCC27 connection, they must replace or swap out their old LPG cylinder (with a POL valve) to one with a LCC27 connection.
