Strange sound from CO2 system

657 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  asif
I have recently setup a CO2 system, it is up and running but I am facing a rather strange issue.

I am getting a 'tink' sound every few minutes when the solenoid is on. The duration between the sounds are related to the bubble per second. So initially I was getting the sound every 2 minutes. Then once I reduced the bubble/second, I am now getting the sound every six minutes.

I have no idea where this sound would be coming from and whether it is a cause for concern. This is the first time I am using a CO2 system so I have no idea if this is normal.

Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks in advance.

To narrow down the issue, I took off the top of the bubble counter as I had a check valve in the pipe, but the sound was still coming. It seemed the sound was coming when the gas was coming from cylinder to regulator.

So I took off the regulator and reconnected it firmly. Fortunately the sound is gone now!

I am using WYIN Pro CO2 regulator with Solenoid.

Thanks for your responses, appreciate it.
