Scuba Regulator for Oxygen Analyzer                

 

 


Regulator for Nitrox/Oxygen Analyzer

Nitrox Oxygen Analyzer

The above short hose regulator configuration works great.  This compact regulator makes it easy to quickly and painlessly analyze the contents of your Nitrox Tanks or Fill System.  We don't sell these, but we will tell you how to make them.   Most likely, you already have all the pieces you need.  Rummaging through the box of old regulators and associated parts most Dive shops have should yield the required items.  If you don't work for (or own) a dive shop, drop by your LDS (local dive shop) and offer them some money for what's in the parts box.  You should be able to put one of these together for next to nothing.  

Scuba LP Short Hose

This is a short LP hose commonly used to connect first and second stages together in display cases.

  2nd Stage with housing removed

This is a 2nd stage regulator with the housing removed.  You will use this to release the pressure in the 1st Stage  so that you can disconnect it from a tank or your fill station.

     

BC Power Inflator adapter

This is a BC adapter that will thread onto the short LP hose.  These are less common than the style that are integrated into the LP hose.  You may have to search through a bunch of BC inflator hoses to find this item.

  Old 1st stage regulator

An old 1st Stage Scuba regulator.  Old regulators that have limited part support (i.e Dacor) make great candidates as you can't use them for much else.

 

The short hose regulator, ready for final assembly.

Add a short high-pressure hose and pressure gage and you have a complete tank checker.

To Plumb your regulator into your fill station, you will need some way to mount the regulator.  The following adapters are available from either Global Manufacturing Corp. or North Easy Scuba Supply.   Hook these into your fill station with a tee and an isolation valve such that they are upstream of the fill whips and air/nitrox banks so that you get a representative sample of the gas as it goes by on its way to its final destination (i.e. nitrox tank or bank).
