Gas tanks


Our raku kilns are fired with, and the burner assembly is only suitable for propane gas. In the Netherlands the grey Shell tanks which contain 10,5 Kg of liquified propane gas are commonly use. However the colour and available size of gas tanks may vary from country to country.

The pressure regulator of the burner assembly suits both a Shell as well as a DIN tank connection.
Please make sure that,at all times, the gasket is in place.

For camping and caravan usage there are also smaller gas tanks (5Kg). Those tanks cannot keep up with the gas demand during the firing of the kiln and are not suitable.
