Nitro System
« on: December 28, 2017, 10:34:35 PM »
I set up a new nitro tap and I'm pushing a 75/25 mix with a 20# tank. I believe when I got it filled the regulator read 1800. My problem is that I'm blowing through gas faster than I should be. One week and the regulator says to order gas. I've checked for leaks and none were found. I am perplexed. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

If there are no leaks then maybe the regulator gauge is bad.  I have a bad gauge on the tank side of my normal CO2 regulator so I ignore it; the one on the keg side tells me what I want to know.

It's gotta be a leak. There is no other possible reason.

Could it be that nitrogen isn’t liquified in those tanks and the amount of gas is much lower compared to liquified CO2 only?
