Step 1: Liquid LPG enters the vaporizer via an inlet control valve.

Step 2: The control valve’s inverted, metal to metal seat provides durability while preventing debris from collecting on the valve seat.

Step 3: Liquid LPG enters the steel heat exchanger tubes cast into the aluminum body. The steel tubes provide a secure pressure boundary and enhance heat transfer.

Step 4: Self-regulating heaters replenish energy extracted during the vaporization process. The unique design prevents overheating and uses NO temperature sensors, relays, or similar control devices.

Step 5: Accepts AC power.

Step 6: The temperature of the LPG vapor exiting the vaporizer is monitored by a temperature sensitive bulb. This bulb provides feedback to the inlet control valve.

Step 7: The inlet control valve modulates the flow of liquid LPG into the vaporizer relative to the vapor exit temperature to ensure complete vaporization occurs.
