Pressure regulator with 2 pressure gauges and solenoid valve for night switch-off for CO2 aquarium plant fertiliser systemsThe pressure reducer reduces the cylinder pressure from approx. 60 bar (displayed on pressure gauge 1) to a low 1.2 bar working pressure (displayed on pressure gauge 2), so that the CO2 supply can be easily regulated
Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 pressurised gas cylinder, connect the solenoid valve to the timer (not included) or CO2 control unit (not included) and regulate the amount of CO2 added using the fine needle valve
The pressure reducer fits disposable CO2 cylinders (U system) and refillable cylinders (M system). By unscrewing the knurled nut (W21.8x1/14) with an Allen key, the pressure reducer fits the M10x1 thread of the disposable cylinders
Very high-quality design: anodised aluminium, precisely CNC-milled in titanium colour, low-noise solenoid valve. Reliable sealing washer instead of O-ring
Package contents: 1 CO2 pressure reducer with 2 pressure gauges (for working & cylinder pressure) for refillable cylinders, solenoid valve and unscrewable adapter - then suitable for disposable CO2 cylinders
Easy to installScrew the fitting onto the refillable or disposable CO2 cylinder. Connect the pressure reducer through a hose to a bubble counter/check valve and then to the diffuser/reactor in the aquarium. Adjust the number of CO2 bubbles on the fine needle valve. The CO2 permanent test provides feedback as to whether the amount of CO2 added is correct.
Safe to useThe pressure reducer is equipped with a safety relief valve, which provides a safe release of working pressure (in case it has been set too high) without damaging the fitting. The diaphragm control of the pressure reducer guarantees absolute reliability.
Night switch-off/CO2 control:The solenoid valve can either be switched on and off by a timer (not included) so that it switches on the light and the CO2 in the morning (and switches off again in the evening) or the solenoid valve is switched on and off by a CO2 control unit (JBL PROFLORA CO2 CONTROL) to regulate the CO2 supply and thus the pH value automatically.
Tip: Can be easily converted to a disposable cylinder system by unscrewing the knurled union nut with an Allen key.
Function of the pressure reducer (= pressure regulator): To reduce the pressure from the pressurised gas cylinder, a pressure reducer is screwed on. It reduces the 50-60 bar cylinder pressure to a working pressure of approx. 1.2 bar. These 1.2 bar are then dosed by a small handwheel (fine needle valve) so precisely that individual CO2 bubbles can be seen and counted in the bubble counter connected. The cylinder pressure and the working pressure are indicated on pressure gauges on this pressure reducer. These displays are not strictly necessary, as - unlike with diving cylinders with compressed air - the cylinder pressure does not slowly drop, and you do not need to be warned when the cylinder is running low. Instead, the pressure remains at its maximum pressure and then drops to zero in a very short time. So, unfortunately, there is no slow decrease of the cylinder filling pressure. The working pressure would only be important if it needed to be adjusted, though this is normally not necessary.
