Not the elite, just the pro series. I have tried closing the needle valve and opening the working pressure completely. If I do this it goes straight to 60 psi.
I have tried every variation and none allow for a steady bubble rate under 60 psi.
Put simply, as soon as I reduce the bubble rate the working pressure climbs. Can’t explain it more simpler than that.
The working pressure knob is always completely released (no pressure).
If I want to have 30 psi pressure I have to have a rapid amount of co2 being released.
first off.. IF you set the pressure at say 30psi.. Solenoid off so no gas gets out .
Then open the solenoid
If your gauge ever rises your regulator is faulty..
sounds like 60psi is the maximum out pressure your regulator can do and should never need to be set that high..
(2) I have release the working pressure knob as far as it can go, but it has no effect.
Turning thet knob counter clockwise should make your outlet pressure lower to zero (fully loosened).
Turning it clockwise will enable and increase your outlet pressure.
The "Milwaukee" way of adj. states to set outlet pressure at zero and open up the metering valve to full.
Then increase outlet pressure (turning knob clockwise) until you get good flow (lots of bubbles) then close the metering valve till you get your target bubble rate.
Sort of opposite of what most people do, thus your confusion.
Set outlet pressure, then open valve till you get what you want.
Either way and if using an atomizer , your outlet pressure should not need to exceed 35psi-ish.
If it does it generally points to a leak somewhere.
