Re: [SPAM] [AGA-Member] pH shock - how to support recovery?

It's Mike. You have been batting a thousand with over filled tanks recently blowing out your equipment. I think its getting to the time where you are going to ask for them to connect a pressure gauge to the tank before you leave. It will take only a few seconds for them to do this. I think it will save you some equipment and heartaches in the future.

  Now that I'm deep in the regulator replacement, with the welding gas 
  supply shop and the Victor Company and the Airgas distributor all closed 
  for a holiay weekend, I'm finding that the regulator won't shut off 
  completely when I've barely cracked open the main tank valve.
  I can't turn on the main tank valve any further without chilling the 
  regulator and running amazing amounts of gas out.
  I think I've got a bad regulator, although it's brand new.
  It's a Victor Medalist SR5B-320 0780-2544 for carbon dioxide, to be precise.
  The last one got killed by an overfilled CO2 tank.  That blew the 
  overpressure valve on the Milwaukee regulator/needle valve/bubble 
  counter setup, and the regulator couldn't be fixed from that.
  My family is pushing me back toward yeast bottles, and this isn't helping.
  Any suggestions from any experts in the house?
