cylinder adaptors

Some cylinder manufacturers now produce bottles which require the regulator to be connected to the bottle from the side. The 90° adaptors allow this to happen by keeping the regulator the right way up so that the pressure control knob and gauges are always in view. These adaptors are available in RH and LH versions.

Cylinder extensions provide an additional distance above the bottle outlet, terminating in a 5/8 BSP female fitting to receive the male bullnose of the regulator. Available in LH (fuel gas) & RH (oxy/are) versions.

The CO2 To Argon Adaptor is used to connect a CO2 regulator to an argon cylinder outlet. The double-threaded brass adaptor has a CO2 bottle fitting at the top, which connects to the nut on the regulator inlet, and a fitting at the bottom, which screws in to an argon bottle.

Some sites choose to service several operators from a single pair of oxygen and fuel gas cylinders. In these circumstances, 3-way adaptors are often used to provide 2 or 3 regulator connections. Third output can be blanked off with the threaded plug.

Argon cylinders have a 5/8 BSP, RH thread female outlet connection and the regulator has a matching male bullnose, whereas CO2 cylinders have a 5/8 BSP, RH thread male outlet connection and the regulator has a matching female nut. This adaptor allows an argon regulator to connect to a CO2 cylinder.

The 90° adaptors allow this to happen by keeping the regulator the right way up so that the pressure control knob and gauges are always in view. These adaptors are available in RH and LH versions. The EXT version is 30mm longer.
