GAS CONNECTORS 


Flexible gas appliance connectors play a key role in commercial kitchens but rarely receive the attention they deserve. If installed and maintained properly, gas connectors will provide years of service supplying castered kitchen appliances with natural gas, water, or steam. If not, they can throw a kink in your kitchen’s operations.


In most traditional foodservice kitchen installations, there are six to nine inches of dead space behind appliances. Space that is blocked from cleaning can fill with debris and grease. Flexible connectors allow castered equipment to be rolled away from the wall and cleaned from behind or from the side. This routine maintenance helps improve kitchen sanitation and safety.


When service or maintenance work is required, flexible gas connectors let you quickly disconnect the piece of equipment and move it out of the busy central cooking area.


A commercial grade flexible gas connector with a quick disconnect coupling is not only convenient, it is required by ANSI Z21.69/CSA 6.16 for the installation of all commercial equipment on casters. A restraining cable and manual shut-off are also required.


To install gas connectors properly: • Be sure that the fittings are tight and connected properly.


• Ensure the utility supply port at the wall is offset from the intake port on the appliance. If they are not offset, the connector could end up being forced against itself, increasing the chance for kinking as well as pushing the appliance away from the wall. Compromised connectors can cause loss of performance or destruction of property.


• Make certain the connector is not too long for the application which may allow it to be run over by the appliance.


With Dormont’s Safety System Kit including Safety-Set, your equipment set-up will also meet the requirements of the NFPA 96 & 17A pertaining to the hood ventilation systems.
