In Topic: Myth REG

13 January 2009 - 02:29 AM

didn't mean that tone in being high and mighty, but tried to make a point.

I am wondering if the myth reg is somehow designed to a fail safe position which would just shut off all the air to the marker should the regulator fail. I wonder if it might be under the same principal as the fail safe thermostats built for cars to prevent them from overheating from a thermostat failure.

it is not about the compactness, though one thing I have learned is that long regulators are potential fail point the more you stick weight out off the end of your ASA in length the more stress there is on that regulator body..

Lift a 35 lbs weight and hold it straight out from your body it will feel like your shoulder will fall off after a minute or 2. keep it close to your body and you can damn near hold it all day. It is the same principle.

Also they come with Burst discs the same as any other regulator and at the same rupture pressure set for the tank design be it 3000 or 4500.. It is a major safety requirement.

Third thing, there are only about 3 companies in the world that make the monofilament wrapped tanks for everything from O2 tanks for airplanes to our nitrogen tanks. the 68ci tanks short of a customer (DXS, PMI, Crossfire, CP) wanting one that is shorter and fatter(not many order strange dimension due to engineering costs the customer would have to absorb) are all the same dimensions due safety specs for welds, metal stress, and other factors for the thin metal that carbon fiber encapsulates.

I am having only one problem with the myth reg on my new G3 is that the air gauge is hitting the grip and stopping me from bottoming out my reg on the ASA...

knowing that there is only like 3 tank manufactures in the world for carbon wound tank. The better question is which manufacturer makes the most consistent flowing reg. namely the most consistent pressure at any rate of fire or amount of flow needed.

In Topic: tank leaking please help

Trust me it could leak from anywhere brand new. Things get bumped around in shipping. Get it filled again and mix up some dawn and water and pour a little around all threaded joints and even the pin valve and see what bubbles (aircraft mechanic trick). I wish you could out a little DC33 or parker "O" on the main oring for the reg, but 4500 psi would be pushing it for safety.
