Hopefully this weekend I'll get them put together.

All Stainless steel. Need to add wires to the solenoids, likely will use a 6 ft cord.

I have 2 Swagelok Dual stage SS. Those are sweet.

I have a smaller tank I'm doing Paint ball tanks, I might use a 2.5lb tank also.
I think I'll do a full brass mini style regulator for that one.

I still need another unit for an upcoming tank install this Fall.

I'll add photo's here.

Tom,

Looks like a really nice/clean build! ;)
Check your PMs. I noticed something that should be corrected. Could cause a leak if not corrected.

Yes, I am aware the solenoid is backwards in the pic, but, you can clearly see the unit is not put together yet, it's for pic purposes only.

You can also see that the needle valve is also backwards.

10-4. Just making sure. I found out the hard way (I always do). What are you going to use to seal the components?

Nice rig you there Tom!

Also will you add a parts list?

General stuff is listed above.
Swagelok equivalents can be found on the threads.

I'll finish one or both tomorrow.

I'll switch the 120 Gallon CO2 reg out and add this one.
I'll match the volume of mls per 5 minutes of the existing CO2 system to the flow rate on the new one, this eliminates 99% of tweaking requirements when switch from one well established CO2 system to another.
Far more accurate than any other method for switching over from one Needle valve/regulator psi setting to a new one.
