I'm buying the parts for my pressurized CO2 system and am getting confused... maybe someone can help??
I just bought a 5 lb aluminum CO2 tank and a double gauge regulator from beveragefactory.com. I'm shopping around now for the rest of the set-up, which I'm basing mostly on the information from this website: http://www.gpodio.com/co2_setup.asp
I'm considering this needle valve, the Clippard MNV-4K2 (http://www.clippard.com/store/displa...p?sku=MNV-4K2#
) with a 10/32 male inlet. I'd need an adapter to attach it to a regulator, and Giancarlo Podio's site recommends this 1/4” NPT to #10-32 Female Reducer (http://www.clippard.com/store/displa...p?sku=4CQF-PKG
). Buuuut... the regulator I bought (http://www.beveragefactory.com/draft...egulator.shtml
) doesn't have a 1/4" oulet. It has a 3/8" outlet barb.
At first I thought, "$%@#$! I bought the wrong one." However... After calling the company and doing some searching online, it seems like all regulators without built-in needle valves have a 3/8" barb outlet. How are people connecting needle valves to these regulators?
Is there something I'm missing???
