Biogas fittings and pipes

The AGAMA BiogasPro 6 has been certified by SAPGA.

PIPING - AGAMA Biogas recommends using multilayer Ginde SABS approved gas pipe - 16mm or 25mm. The pipe is flexible, safe and can be connected using special Ginde clamps .

Please watch the short Youtube video on using the DIY clamp and reamer.

This is the 3/4" Male x 16mm Ginde fitting to make the connection from the gas manifold to the gas pipe.

A simple gas line installation from the top of the tank to the kitchen uses: 

a 3/4" male x 1/2" Male reducing nipple, then a

1/2" female NPT x Ginde 16mm Ball valve

16mm Ginde gas line - R19.00 per m ex VAT

16mm Ginde gas * 8mm barbed hose connection -

This links the AGAMA BiogasPro tank to the kitchen by LPG flexible hose.


The only tools needed are :

FITTINGS - In the kitchen is a desulphuriser  to remove the sulphur smell of the gas, a 0-10 kPa pressure gauge  to show the gas level in the tank, a ball valve  to close off the biogas supply, then the cooker   or in multiple installations the water heater .
