A vaporizer is installed after the main supply. From there you plumb to whatever needs fuel. The Flaming Lotus Girls used two vaporizers for the Serpent Mother in 06'. They had two 150 gallon (not pound) ball tanks and one 250 gallon ball tank to feed the hungry beast.

Question for yall, I have some scuba tanks I'd like to use for accumulators, is that kosher!? Some have current hydro, some not, but I could get them hydro'd to 3000 as they are spec'd for. I know it will work and be safe, but how to get them aroved for the playa?

Scuba tanks are rated for much higher pressures than propane can achieve. As long as the tanks are not modified, IE: welded on or new openings drilled, the tanks will make fine accumulators.
