One main LP regulator?

Why can't I have seperate small reagulators at each appliance? My fryer came with a small regulator attached. The guy was using it next to a hot dog cart. Outside in the open. Just ask'n
Thanks John

    Not sure what you are asking???   
     
    If you want 'ONE' regulator, you can IF All your appliance operate at the same line pressure.
    If you want 2-stage regulator system, you can.   The first stage regulator reduces tank pressure to 10 psi line pressure and the 2nd regulator reduces 10 psi to 11" wc or less.   This has two benefits:   smaller line size between 1st & 2nd regulators;  steadier feed pressure to 2nd regulator (10 psi to 11"wc or lower) & appliance ( no surges).  Note, one could use one 2nd stage regulator for several appliances by reducing the pressure at a manifold; then connections to each appliance.
     
    Search for and down load the "Fisher Controls LP-Gas Serviceman’s Handbook" for more info and pipe line & regulator sizing.
