Gas Cooker Hoses from Cooker Spare Parts
There are a number of different gas hoses on the market today, so when it comes to replacing your gas cooker hose, it can all seem rather overwhelming! In this blog post, we will aim to explain to you the different types of gas hose and what they are used for; hopefully, when you come to purchase your replacement gas cooker hose, you will be relatively confident that you have purchased the correct one.
What is a gas cooker hose?
a gas hose is a cylindrical tube that has been designed specifically for carrying gas from one location to another, with as little leakage as possible. Because gas is a very small particle it can leak out of the smallest gaps, so many gas cooker hoses have to be specifically constructed in such away they prevent gas leaks for many years. Many gas hoses are constructed from rubber and different kinds of plastic because these materials have been constructed in such away they are leak resistant.
Over time gas pipes can become worn and start showing signs of wear and tear, it is then you will have to start thinking about purchasing and fitting a new gas cooker hose.
Different Types of Gas Hoses:
There are 5 types of gas cooker hoses, standard gas hose – natural gas, Standard gas hose – LPG, Microline or micropoint hoses – natural gas, Microline or micropoint hoses – LPG, and catering hoses in LPG and Natural gas.
There are 2 types of gas oven, a gas oven that runs off Natural gas (methane and ethane) and an oven that runs off LPG gas (propane and butane), and each oven requires different gas piping. Natural gas is lighter than LPG gas, so the gas hose has to be manufactured to different standards. Therefore it is important that when you are purchasing a new gas hose you are confident you have the correct one for your appliance.
Standard Hoses - Natural Gas
If you have a natural gas oven, you will find that there are two different types of hose we stock. A straight bayonet hose, or an angled bayonet hose. These both have a plug-in bayonet socket and a 1/2” BSP tapered male threaded fitting at the other. If you are unsure which hose you need, simply look at the connection of your current Gas Cooker Hose to determine which would be most suitable.
The standard hoses that we supply are suitable for all cooker brands and models, and have been manufactured to BS 669-1:1989.
