We are regularly asked about propane generators and their compatibility with GasStop. The majority of generators are too demanding for GasStop – often triggering it into shut-off mode. Our FAQ says:
“Will GasStop work with my propane generator?
Many propane fuelled generators consume a large volume of propane, meaning they draw a high rate of flow. GasStop is designed to shut-off when that rate of flow exceeds 70 SCFH/75,000 BTU/hr (this is what happens during a major leak). Larger generators may ‘mimic’ this high flow rate scenario, thus effectively tripping GasStop into ‘major leak mode’. It is therefore advised that, if you have a propane fuelled generator, you check it’s propane rating (rated no higher than 70 SCFH/75,000 BTU/hr) before purchasing or using your GasStop.”
We hope that the community will share their experiences here – we will also offer advice and ideas to every question we receive.
