Safety presure relief valve !

Post by JSF55 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 4:42 pm

Just having alook through stuff and checking what i got and notice nice big gauge on bottle but no sprv :cry:
I'd rather have the safety aspect than know how much i have, does the sprv fit straight into the same port as the gauge is now?
and who sells them ?


So thats where it went !

So it is...DOH!!!

So you have a generic CO2 style valve.!
Does the gauge show pressure with the valve turned off and the outlet pipe disconnected??

If it does then you need to pull the gauge off and fit a Tee for the SPRV or a bursting disk.

It looks like the gauge is on the live side of the valve so it see's bottle pressure with the valve closed. So its been fitted in the bursting disk port I think. Keep the gauge as its important. Or at least fit the gauge into a Tee on the outlet pipe so you know what pressure you have when the bottle is open. You will need to measure the port size where the gauge is fitted as the Wizards SPRV's come in two thread sizes. Call Anthony at Wizards of Nos and he will be able to help you with the right fittings.

Thanks Perry, i'll have to dump the remainder, it shows about 600psi and about 1 1/2 lb in weight of nitrous and take some measurements to be sure, john
