I have salvaged a hydrogen regulator in good condition. I'd like to
use it to set up a home-brew kegging system on the cheap. What would
happen if I were to use this H2 regulator for carbon dioxide (I'd get
all the right fittings, of course)? Can any of y'all gas handling
experts help this novice out?
I'd assume the main differences between an H2 and a CO2 regulator are
in the soft materials used for seals/diaphragms, etc. Perhaps orifice
sizes are smaller, too, because of the lighter, less viscous gas.
What are the other differences I should know about before I attempt
The regulator is a Uniweld RHT 8017, rated for 3000 psi input.
