Why does a gas cylinder freeze?

The gas vapour that forms in the gas bottle moves downstream to the point at which it is used. The faster the gas is used, the colder the regulator will get. This is why, under normal operation in warm and humid climates, the outside of a gas regulator will feel cold to the touch and may also be wet, frozen or frosted.

Most instances of “freezing” occur on pressure regulators – where the propane’s pressure is reduced to a level usable by appliances and equipment. As the liquid propane expands to a gas form and reaches its boiling point, it commonly freezes the available humidity around the regulator.
