Can you print this?eiginh;43600 said:It was the fittings from the co2 tank to regulator to solenoid then from solenoid to metering valve. The pimp thread works, just the pm's you sent that links to certain posts do not.
I haven't heard of any problems with these Parker solenoids.jonny_ftm;43602 said:Are those Solenoid valves that overheat? Some generations, called electronic, are stated to be very economical on electricity as they don't heat quiet at all
Are you still wanting to use SS parts?eiginh;43600 said:It was the fittings from the co2 tank to regulator to solenoid then from solenoid to metering valve. The pimp thread works, just the pm's you sent that links to certain posts do not.
Notice that you have 4 parts listed here and 6 below.eiginh;43606 said:... Please correct me if I'm wrong. *Numbers relate to the order connected to regulator
2. 1/4" MPT x 1/8" MPT hex nipple
3. 1/8" FPT x 1/8" MPT elbow
4. Clippard solenoid
5. 1/8" MPT x 1/8" mpt hex nipple
6. Needle/Meter Valve
7. 1/8" MPT x 1/8" MPT hex nipple
8. JBJ bubble counter
The non-hardening pipe joint compound is a better choice. Teflon tape can splinter and send small pieces into the solenoid.eiginh;43606 said:Sealant should be teflon pape or non hardening pipe joint compound
What needle/metering valve are you using? Angle or Straight Through??eiginh;43606 said:Swagelok SS part # (relation to the steps above)
I think I'm missing a step...
Your link is to one of your PM's. I can't view it.eiginh;43606 said:Anyways in order to do this set up (zip tieing)
or jonny_ftm's set up...What steps do I skip?
It's fine. I hope that my info makes sense too.eiginh;43606 said:I hope this make sense...
eiginh;43631 said:I'm thinking of going that route b/c it seems easier to find the metering valve. I looked on ebay for swagelok 1/8" metering valve but all I can find is 1/4". How much cheaper would it be rather than going s/s?
