MB Sturgis Propane Fittings

  • Adapter Fittings
  • 1/4 Inch - Male NPT
  • Type 1 - Female
  • MB Sturgis

Type 1 connector lets you attach a propane regulator to your propane tank. Connector hand-tightens onto the tank while the male NPT threads attach to a regulator or supply hose. Safety valves stop flow in case of leaks or high heat.


Features:

  • Cylinder connector lets you hook up a hose to the LP cylinder on your RV
    • High flow rate lets you supply gas to multiple appliances at once
  • Type 1 ACME fitting attaches to your cylinder propane tank
  • 1/4" Male NPT connects to your regulator or hose
  • Built-in safety features shut gas off in potentially hazardous situations
    • Thermal shut-off device turns off gas flow in extreme heat caused by open flame
    • Excess-flow bypass mode stops gas flow in the event of a severe leak
  • Durable brass fittings approved for LP gas only
    • ANSI Z21.81 and CSA certified
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Fitting size: Type 1 cylinder connection x 1/4" male NPT
  • Temperature range: -40 F to 250 F
  • Maximum flow capacity: 450,000 Btu per hour
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Bypass Mode for Safety

This Type 1 connector will go into bypass mode if the flow rate surpasses the maximum flow capacity for this connector, which is 450,000 Btu per hour. A ball inside of the fitting will push an internal spring down, pressing firmly against the bottom of the fitting to shut off the flow of gas.


When choosing a Type 1 connector, consider your overall propane demands and choose a connector with a flow rate that just exceeds it. That way, you won't trigger the bypass mode during normal use, but it will trigger in the event of a leak. If the bypass valve engages, stop using gas and start checking your connections for leaks.

Video Transcript for MB Sturgis Propane 204052-MBS Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the MB Sturgis propane cylinder connector. The dark green type one is used to connect an RV LP cylinder to a high-pressure hose feeding the two stage regulator. This eliminates the need for wrenches and features a thermal shut-off and excess flow device. Maximum output or flow capacity is 200,000 btu's per hour. The unit provides the highest flow rate possible before going into bypass mode, allowing the maximum gas flow to power the coach appliances. The type one has a built in back check to ensure the system does not allow a back-flow gas leak when an automatic changeover regulator is improperly used. The other end features a quarter inch MNPT, which stands for male national pipe thread.

The unit features a temperature range of negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit and this unit is certified for use in the USA and Canada. It's to be used for LP gas only. That's going to do it for today's look at the MB Sturgis propane cylinder connector.
