Re" CO2 Regulation, Bombast and Shame
<<The amount of misinformation in the paragraph above is shameful......While,
as I point out, a dual stage (not gauge) regulator will avoid the problem,
they are not $65. A $20 needle valve is totally inadequate to the task of
providing the ultra-low flow rates we want, the valves suitable for this
function are quite a bit more expensive. But the writer is correct that a
valve helps...... Most economically priced regulators dump gas at
end-of-tank, including ones made by the honorable Germans, Cornelius......
If you want to get the total skinny on what is going on, reread my diatribe.
I'm really coming to the point of believing this CO2 stuff is Rocket Science.
Look Beer Taps, soda machines, welding tanks, gas tanks in hospitals don't
explode in use. well most don't anyway. Perhaps none do. I rather suspect
that if a beer tap exploded at Ye Olde Pub cum Sports Bar we would all have
heard about it, well most of us anyway. And I am sure that the regulators
used pretty much span the spectrum regarding price.
It seems that if a poster does not craft a perfect paragraph, providing ALL
and I mean all suitable qualifications, and account for all conceivable
conditions and circumstance regardless how unlikely, some *expert* here is
going to pop up and slam the poster.
This is unworthy of the list, is immature behavior, is certainly not helpful
to anyone, and should stop. I feel like an ass posting to this list because I
KNOW that, if someone responds, it will likely be with the tone that *You
don't know what the hell you are saying, so shut the F up -- implied rather
than explicit. I did not know that aquatic plants could generate such
hostility ... bring out the worst in people. Frankly when someone who is
involved in marketing a particular type of system starts slamming others who
do not happen to agree with him........well I think his comments need to be
placed in perspective and given due weight regarding vested interests. I'm
not saying he's right. I'm not saying he's wrong.
I'm expecting some expert to respond to my previous post **Well just because
the gauge is calibrated 0 - 250 Bars (0- 3000 plus PSI) does not mean that
it is a high pressure gauge. I mean it may be but, it could be a scam. **
True. But if so then logic could also state, regardless of the opinions
stated as fact by the self-proclaimed, non professionally qualified in
welding or medical gasses, that a *two gauge rather than a *two phase*
regulator will dump a tank whereas the two phases will not.
People here have suggested rather obliquely that this welding professional I
consulted does not know what the hell he's talking about. I guess that's
because he has grease under his fingernails. He certainly is qualified though
regarding regulators, whether they be one, two or ten stage. The bottom
line? But a regulator on the rancor please, and try to live up to the spirit
of the list by genuinely trying to assist others with a stuck regulator
stuck in some unseemly body part!
It seems that a few here, really enjoys talking to each other. It's a real
mutual admiration society. No one knows as much as they, and should someone
post an alternate view they get trashed. Someone said earlier and I
paraphrase ** well you have to understand, they have been here from the
outset. They are sort of plank owners. It's their right. ** Wrong.
What reaction will this post generate? *Well you don't have to subscribe to
this list if that's the way you feel. * Heh. Anyone wanna buy a 120 gallon
tank, Eheim 2228, a CO2 system that does not dump and three PC strip lights
that, because I did not buy retro kits from AH Supply are obviously
inadequate? I'll throw in the home made cabinet free. I'm in Annapolis
