Regulator Acetylene – Single Stage
A single staged Acetylene regulator is a light to medium duty regulator for use with welding, heating and cutting of up to around 100mm. These flowmeters have to be watched and the pressure needs to be manually set by the operator as the output pressure of the cylinder changes.
It consists of encapsulated valves as well as sintered metal cup filters and can operate at moderate flow capacities. There are 2 gauges, usually the gauge closest to the bottle indicates bottle content and the far gauge indicated outlet pressure. (But can vary on different models.)
