Swagelok regulator - not sure if this can be used

Hello all, just got my hands on this regulator. The model is KLF1 I am new to building my own regulators so I would like to check with more experienced individuals. If someone can shed some light on whether this can be used for co2 injection on one of my tanks it would be appreciated.

it is a single stage regulator, and the input pressure gauge is only 600 psi, this model is 3600psi max input though.
output gauge is only 15 psi, not sure about the actual max output, you can find it on the body of the regulator.

Don't use it, it is single stage regulator.

I would also advise against using it, unless you are willing to retrofit it (gauges, at the bare minimum).
