  • Pressure Regulator Difficulties

    I'm trying to get 25CFH on my new regulator. I can't get it to read any higher than 15CFH, but it sounds like it's really blowing out of the mig gun. Any idea what the problem might be?

        Is this a pressure regulator or a flow meter?

          what is the model number and where are you reading the output..??

          Have you confirmed ACTUAL flow at the nozzle with a nozzle flowmeter..??

          they are inexpensive and handy

              Another thing to check - if your "flow" meter has scales for both LPM and CFH, make sure you're using the right scale - if you set 25 LPM you'll be getting about 55 CFH... Steve
