I don't usually document regulator builds but this one deserves it's own thread. It might also be helpful to those of you out there thinking about building something nicer that what's currently available in the aquarium trade. I'm also not much for documentation so bare with me.
This build will use a new Airgas Y12-215B
Removed the factory fittings.
Prepping a stainless steel cga-320 nipple.
Pile of various parts and pieces.
All the pipe fittings are prepped for assembly.
Starting the post body.
Attaching the metering valve and check valve.
Moving along, here's inside the din connecter for the Burkert solenoid where I needed to connect the power cable.
Power cable wired up.
Plugged it in to make sure it works. lol
That's it for now. Someone in China sent me the wrong bubble counter. I'll post a completed photo after the right parts arrive.
Parts list (used above) :
- Airgas Y12-215B
- SS Smith cga-320 nut/nipple
- SS Burkert 6011 w/varistor and LED
- Ideal V54-1-12
- Swagelok SS-4-HRN-2
- Swagelok SS-2-SE (2)
- Swagelok SS-2-HN
- Parker 2M-C4L-1/3-SS
- Stolen computer power cable
I hope you enjoyed the build as much as I did! It's driving me nuts not testing it out yet...
