1/3rd of a gallon per hour on high. It will not run on high all the time. .3X24=7.2 gallons worst case.

Dear sir i have a empire/corcho 1500 btu heater and i have a 70 gallon tank of propane tank but the heater says natural gas can i do this or do i have to use a conversion kit and do i do that and where do...


First off, yes you can convert it to propane. The difference is that the orifice, which should be in the conversion kit, has a smaller hole for the gas to pass through and needs to be changed. Secondly, the air consumption on propane is greater than that of natural gas and for that reason you need to open the air venturi, usually to the max to allow the largest amount of air to enter. Don't overlook the pilot light as well, it also needs to have a different orifice installed. You can find new orifices and/or conversion kits at the store where you buy your propane, assuming it's not a big box retailer. Go to a local propane supply location for the parts. Another option is to go directly to the manufacturers home page and order the propane orifices.

What size propane tank do i need with a Mr. Heater 45,000?


Rule of thumb is that you have 100,000 btu's per gallon of propane. This only translates into the length of time you have available in a tank of gas. The problem arises when you consume too much too fast. The gas can't produce enough vapor to continuously run and becomes dormant which is commonly known as "freezing up". You can use a typical (20 lb.)5 gallon propane tank (barbacue size), but it will more than likely freeze up in 2 - 3 hours of continous use. I'd suggest going to the next larger size a 30 lb. or 7.5 gallon size. The best way to work this system is to have two 5 gal. tanks so you can switch one out when it freezes and let it thaw while your using the spare.

How long will one pound propane tank last


The 16.4 oz propane bottle contains 1.02 pounds of propane.
1.02 lbs propane equals 16.320 oz
16.320 oz equals 22.032 BTU’s.
The RMC-8001SS has two settings, maximum and minimum
The Max setting is rated at 8,000 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 8,000 equals 2.754 or 2-3/4 hours
The Min setting is rated at 4,500 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 4,500 equals 4.896 or 4.8 hours

One 16.4 ounce bottle will burn 22.032 BTU’s @8,000 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 2-3/4 hours and @ 4,500 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 4.8 hours.

Procom ML300TBA Heater: Liquid or Gas


Propane exist in a liquid state when it is under pressure in a propane cylinder. When the valve on the propane cylinder the pressure on the liquid is reduced and the propane reverts back to gas state.

Also, regarding the tank you need....
the owners manual probably states what size you will need but, with most heater like the one you have it will require a 100 lb tank (approximately 25 gallons). You will also need an inline regulator set to 11" to 14" of water column between the tank and the heater.

The info sheet from Northern Tool says this item is not approved for California. There is no mention about massachusetts but if you go to the procom site and do a search for specifications I'm sure you'll find something. For your information, propane heaters consume oxygen to operate but propane produces one gas, carbon dioxide NOT carbon monoxide [which is poisonous] and water vapor - about one ounce of water in a 24 hr heating period. Also be asvised that co-2 will not support life alone but the concentrations produced are very low. I'm in NY state and I use a MrHeat infrared heater in my house in the winter. My co-2 detector has NEVER tripped on.
