re: high presure vs low pressure regulators


Is the pressure really fixed or merely not adjustable? If it is the latter
then the internals are still the diaphragm/spring oscillating regulator
without an adjustment knob to get screwed up. If so these are still subject
to the mechanical oscillator formed not having enough input pressure and
consequent oscillation failure which is the cause of the "dumps."

I'm moving right now and don't have a charged tank to test on but I have one
of the regulators in question and it does seem to be a nice one if not a

It has a fixed working pressure
that ajusts itself automatically as soon as you open the valve on your C02
tank. Some people may not like this for some reason,  but it makes the
dreaded tank end dump virtually impossible.
