Fill nipple position?
« on: August 19, 2018, 01:08:31 PM »
Hi guys,

I want to order one of your standard 3000psi regulators, but most pictures on vendor sites show the fill nipple at 90 to the pressure gauge, and I need one with the nipple at 180 from the gauge, like in the picture below.



Is there a specific part number I should order?

Also, I'm going to be using this on a 3000psi bottle, so should I only use the 3000psi version or can I use a 4500psi reg?

Thanks for any info!

all the regulators now are 180 apart and the pics you are seeing of the gauge and fill nipple that are at 90 are very old- we changed in 2012

only use a 3000 psi reg on a 3k bottle and a 4500 reg on a 4500 bottle. the markings are different and the safety bottle burst disk are different.
