Re: Pressure regulators-Victors
Douglas Guynn wrote aboutr Victor gas pressure regulators
He seemed to be considering ways to convert non-CO2 Victor regulators
to CO2 ones. But Victor makes single and 2-stage CO2 regulators, so
why try to convert an O2 regulator to a CO2 fitting.
The 2-stage is model Vts253b-320
The 1-stage is model Sr253b-320
The 2-stage costs about $60 more than the single -- both have dual
Victors are well known as Cadillacs (Merecedes? -- Eheims?) in the
realm of gas pressure regulators. They are very good if you can afford
Probably overkill for planted tanks -- especially 2-stage reguators. A
second stage helps to keep the output pressure stable when the CO2 tank
pressure gets low. But CO2 gas is so cheap, especially compared to the
price of 2-stage regulators, why not jsut refill the cyclinder when the
CO2 tank pressure starts to drops way down?
