I have propane and oxygen regulators made by Uniweld in 1995 sitting
unused in my studio. I stopped using them because the pressure in
the propane tank would pulse and drop when used at lower PSIs. I use
a Meco midget, and a Smith little torch, depending on the job. I
have several questions for Orchid members:
Has anyone else experienced the pulsing with their regulators? (It
happens when I make chain, and I make a lot of chain.) Does this
pulsing have anything to do with my check valves? (tanks are outside
and protected, pulsing is the same regardless of temperatures, or
fullness of tanks.) Is it worth having them repaired, or should I buy
new ones? (I have checked my area for repair shops, and I would have
to send them to Uniweld in Florida.) If I need new ones, does anyone
have favorite brands for quality and reliability?
I truly appreciate any and all suggestions.
