    The part number I have seen is 0700017193 but when searching the Esab website for that code it doesn't come up and the Esab literature that I downloaded stops at 0700017192

    You might(?) need to fit non-return valves as well depending on how you are using it.
    Otherwise unless both regs are set to exactly the same output pressure one reg will try and bleed down the higher pressure side.
    I have had this problem with co2, not sure if an o2 reg will have a vent to atmospheric though? Might work fine if you shut the empty cylinder off?

    I think xxx193 is for inert gas.

    Is that not what Argon is?

    Yea, matt wants o2 though. Or is this for you? Have I missed something in the thread? :)

    Aye, for me, Matt is going for an Oxygen specific one.
    I have been looking for a two stage for a while but Nevoc ones seem to be thin on the ground and usually very expensive.

    I've gone ahead and ordered 2 of the ESAB series 4 two stage 4 bar reg and some associated bits.

    Thanks for the input chaps.

    That's what gets used down here by my 'bulk oxygen using buddy' ... they seem to hold up to the rigours of a thermal spray shop.

    Just a thought but could you just manifold the tanks and run a single regulator?
    Or is that not allowed?

    Opens up a world of paperwork involving o2 clean high pressure manifolds etc. Easier to do it on the lp side

    Any problems ESAB will swap them right out. They’re really nice regulators.

    Regs showed up today. They seem extremely well made, very heavy.

    Hope the Y piece is oil-free! Just a thought.

    I don't know but does it matter on the LP side?

    Umm.... probably. Give it a wash in hot soapy water and rinse it with the kettle would be my advice.

    *not a gas engineer, don't sue me etc, lol

    Yes it does... I'm not sure if Y peices are sold as specifically oil-free or not, but even LP oxygen will cause an explosion... it doesn't take much pressure at all, and it doesn't take much oil.

    Having said that, I like Hugh's advice :D

    Anyone have a link to an 02 handling safety resource.

    I don't have any Oxygen in yet and I've only handled inert gases so far.

    Would be good to be fully clued up on safety around these cylinders.
