LPG Cylinder Sizes

On a regular basis, I’m building flame effects that are fueled with propane. Invariably for the larger effects, I’m scrambling around looking for specifications and details on propane cylinders to just how long an effect will run given a certain amount of fuel, or how long before this effect freezed the cylinder, or what are the basic dimensions to know how to build the mounting mechanism(s) for the cylinders. So here’s the first table showing basic dimensions and weights associated with propane cylinders. For the curious, the 20# cylinder is what you would typically next to a BBQ.
