The Chell valve, VCR Ultra Line, new Matheson..... you're one brave custom builder Dead2fall.

That Matheson looking real good, I like that 45 degree fitting, it levels everything out. And I'm almost positive Matheson is changing their regulator line. The 3120, 3810 on their site are longer-barstock bodies. If Matheson falls under the Harris group, who else does Harris owns?

It's rated for like 260psi it should be able to handle the working pressure no? I mean what's in the valve should equalize out to whatever my working pressure is shouldn't it?

Finished the Matheson ultra line today! Currently marinating it to check for any pressure loss due to leaks. Don't feel like making a soapy water mess so I'll just leave it overnight. Played around with it some and it's like a hair trigger. I think I'm going to love it! Hey do you guys get nylon ferrules for the airline, or just use the metal ones?
Finished the Matheson 3813 as well, I'm happy with it!

Which metering valve is on the Matheson?

So I'm afraid to close it anymore, but I can get this chell valve down to one bubble per minute @ 60 psi. It was set to 60 psi for testing purposes, that's not my usual working pressure. I didn't count how many full turns it was to get to 3 bubbles per second, but I had to turn it quite a bit. Have to say I'm happy with it!

Really no getting around it. It's not so much the elbow but the valve itself. The chell valve is HUGE especially in vcr. I changed the way this post body was put together anyhow.

Incase you're building one with female vcr ports. Here's how you get around without using vcr gauges and eliminate the extension on the cga320 inlet.
