I was supposed to have "minor surgery" with a stay of 1-2 days.

Due to complications I ended up spending 16 days total in the hospital.

I really really hate hospitals.

If you don't have a check valve you could end up with a cylinder full of water and a damaged regulator. Water and regulators is not a good mix.

Quick answer is they last till they are empty. If you have a leak that could be a day or two.

Beyond that there are a lot of variables. Figure on your tank anywhere from 6-12 months.

I hope you used some kind of seal between the regulator and the cylinder. Other wise it's going to leak no matter how tight it is.

I've used a 501 and it was not sufficient for a 10 gallon tank.

A in-line manifold will work just fine. You will need two needle valves to use it in-line however.

All the Clippard solenoids in the series I use are rated for 6.3 watts of power no matter what the voltage.

So they are going to pretty much have the same temperature rise.

That is a Clippard hose barb. And you can't remove it.

If you wanted it without a barb you should have ordered a MNV-4.

Did Clippard hit you with the $10 handling fee and shipping?

Actually my whole reactor is solvent welded. Anytime you are working with PVC it must be welded. Otherwise it will leak from the start and never get better.

Bit of a difference there. If the ambient temperature is 20C then the Clippard could get as hot as 80C.

The Ideal valve is a better valve than the Fabco. But many people find the cost/benefit ratio doesn't justify the Ideal valve.
