I think I found where I need to be! So I have been out of the game for a long while and need a new co2 regulator to get my 125g tank up and running. All offerings on amazon ect. were not to my liking and i had a super basic single stage back in the day. With that being said i want to buy once and I am looking at dual stage reg's but of course im on a budget lol but been reading so much my heads spinning hahaha.

so what i have been looking for is a concoa 400 series am i on the right track here? (352918733522)
Also like the flow meters and was looking in your other thread Bettatail and am totally confused lol mabe you guys could point me in the right direction?

thanks in advance guys!

This regulator looks good, it is concoa 412 and really good quality, it will shine if give it a good polish.

It's beautiful, but I may be a little biased on this one since it is heading my way....

two independent outputs with parker and swagelok metering valves, and numatics stainless steel miniature solenoids.

Tested and ready! That flowmeter valve is a pain though. Even though it's a 10 turn valve, the float either drops or flies at the slightest touch. The solenoid o-ring was lost for awhile too

@Smellydeli
nice co2 system!
need to find the co2 calibration data for the flowmeter, and I've been looking but don't have any luck so far, I will probably measure the co2 flow rate to get the calibration chart for this particular flow meter.

This reg from Bettatail and protocol station was installed above a utility sink in fish room and works perfectly! Iím glad this will be fixed in place, easily adjusted, and out of harmís way!
