Non-adjustable Propane Regulaltors
I finally got my Minor set up again; its like starting all over! But that's a whole 'nother topic....I'm using an oxygen concentrator, which I love, and propane. Once my house is repaired and I move back in (probably 6 months) I plan to use natural gas as fuel, so in an effort to be economical (read "cheap") I purchased a non-adjustable propane valve from Arrowsprings. It seems to be working well, no fuel surges, constant steady supply, but its going to take some experimenting to get the ideal neutral flame under these conditions, especially since I only used it a couple of times with propane and an oxygen tank.. Does anyone else use this type regulator? Should the valve on the propane tank be opened all the way or only 2-3 turns? I've got the oxycon set at 3 LPM with this setup; would 4.5 LPM be better?
Thanks for any input; it sure is good to be torching again!
