 Hi  Guys
 am  using  a  ESAB  single  stage  regulator  on  a  4.5  KG  pressurised  setup
 
 Am  having  the  output  guage  set  at  5  ltr  /  min  and  a  BPS  of  3-4  connect  to  a  NRV  and  then  a  ISTA  MAX  MIX  reactor  connected  to  EHEI  2217  Output
 
 below  are  my  queries
 
 1.  What  should  be  the  ideal  output  guage  reading  to  have  enough  pressure  for  CO2  to  pass  thro  the  NRV  and  beat  the  EHEIM  Flow  and  enter  the  reactor
 
 2.  I  do  not  see  any  tiny  bubbles  also  comming  out  of  the  EHEIM  Outlet  into  the  tank  --  there  by  i  am  getting  a  feeling  that  the  CO2  even  at  3-4BPS  is  not  entering  the  reactor  at  all  due  to  EHEIM  pressure
 
 3.  when  i  switch  off  the  EHEIM  am  seeing  the  CO2  build  up  in  the  reactor  --  this  clarifies  that  NRV  is  not  at  fault  here  
 
 my  setup  is  ESAB  -  NEEDLVE  VALVE  SOLENOID  combo  (  2  in  1  brass  model)  NRV  -  Rector  -  tank
 
 kindly  help  
 
 all  these  efforts  cause  my  plants  are  suffering  on  BBA
 
 I  was  earlier  on  a  yamato  regulator  and  using  a  power  head  to  diffuse  the  CO2
 
 Regards
 BBA  Fighter

 This  most  probably  means  a  leak  in  your  CO2  equipment.  Try  doing  a  soap  water  test  from  cylinder  valve  till  the  CO2  enters  water.  EHEIM  pressure  is  nothing,  it  should  easily  work.
 
 Is  your  reactor  outside  the  tank?
 
 It  could  also  mean  that  the  reactor  is  dissolving  so  quickly  when  your  filter  is  ON  that  you  hardly  are  able  to  see  it.  But  I  would  check  with  above  concerns  first.

 Thanks  Saikumar
 All  the  leak  tests  were  done  and  nothing  found.
 
 The  key  is  to  have  the  output  pressure  set  at  10Ltr/hr  in  the  ESAB  and  things  work  like  a  charm.

 That  is  great  to  know!
 
 How  are  you  setting  10ltr/hr,  are  you  saying  off  the  bubble  count?

 The  ESAB  output  guage  is  calibrated  as  ltrs  /  hr  
 
 my  BPS  is  at  3-4
