When using a Carlisle burner, in any industry, you should be sure that the burner is connected using the correct hosing for the application.
Hosing, like all piping systems, must be designed and installed with proper specifications and understanding of the dynamics related to pressure, flow, proper sizing, static pressure losses, temperature, materials, specific gravity of gases for use, and safety issues, among others.
Carlisle offers many configurations of hose assemblies in both twin and single pre- fabricated or custom length hoses.Carlisle always recommends the use of threaded connections for our products.
Tygon hose is a very flexible light duty hose available with blank ends only. It should always be used with hose clamps and properly sized matching hose adapters. It is manufactured with color-coded "tracing" for use with natural gas, propane, mixed gases, and oxygen or air.

Frequently supplied with JIC (37 degree flare) female swivel connectors or adapted to male pipe thread. It can also be used with natural gas, propane, mixed gases, and oxygen or air.
