This is indicated as kg/h (kilograms per hour) as required by EN standards. This equates to the mass of liquid used per hour in a gas cylinder or bulk tank and can be easily converted to kilowatts (kW) by multiplying by 13.9 or dividing the kW on the appliance data plate by 13.9 in reverse, these figures are for propane gas.
Clesse declares the flow rate at the lowest inlet pressure (worst case) to the regulator to ensure that consumers are covered in most climatic conditions. Be careful when comparing with other manufacturers or suppliers whom declare higher flow rates but omit the inlet pressure or outlet pressure drop to achieve this result.
Installation must be carried out in accordance with the Instruction leaflet that accompanies the regulator.
Where applicable, all installations, adjustments and maintenance work must be carried out by persons who have the ne cessary skills to do so and are qualified according to the regulations in force for that particular installation.
Maintenance and Durability
Normally the regulators do not require any maintenance. Functionality of the product and of the gas installation must be checked periodically and according to any maintenance schedule or rules governed by the regulations in force for that particular installation. The recommended replacement period of a regulator by Clesse UK Limited is normally 10 years.

Rubber material and Gas quality
All the regulators are built to withstand the use of LPG (liqueﬁed petroleum gas) in vapour phase, NG (natural gas), air and nitrogen. In order to ensure correct operation and a long life expectancy, the LPG gases be sufﬁciently pure, and should contain no aggressive components. It is important that a bulk head mounted regulator is fitted with short hoses and such that the regulator inlet is above the cylinder valves to ensure any LPG condensate (vapour gas reliquifying in the hoses) returns back into the cylinders and not the regulator. Always purchase your gas from reputable gas distributors.
