JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR BASIC
Pressure regulator for CO2 aquarium plant fertiliser system

  • The pressure reducer reduces the cylinder pressure from approx. 60 bar to a low 2 bar working pressure, so that the CO2 supply can be easily regulated
  • Screw the pressure reducer onto the pressurised CO2 cylinder and regulate the amount of CO2 added at the fine needle valve
  • The pressure reducer fits disposable CO2 cylinders (U system) and refillable cylinders (M system). By unscrewing the knurled nut (W21.8x1/14) with an Allen key, the pressure reducer fits the M10x1 thread of the disposable cylinders
  • Very high quality design: anodised aluminium, precisely CNC milled in titanium colour. Reliable sealing washer instead of O-ring
  • Package contents: 1 CO2 pressure reducer for refillable cylinders, with unscrewable adapter - then suitable for CO2 disposable cylinders

Product information

Easy to install
Screw the fitting onto the refillable or disposable CO2 cylinder. Connect the pressure reducer through a hose to a bubble counter/check valve and then to the diffuser/reactor in the aquarium. Adjust the number of CO2 bubbles on the fine needle valve. The CO2 permanent test provides feedback as to whether the amount of CO2 added is correct.

Safe to use
The pressure reducer is equipped with a safety relief valve, which provides a safe release of working pressure (in case it has been set too high) without damaging the fitting. The diaphragm control of the pressure reducer guarantees absolute reliability.

Tip: Can be easily converted to a disposable cylinder system by unscrewing the knurled union nut with an Allen key.

Function of the pressure reducer:
To reduce the pressure from the pressurised gas cylinder, a pressure reducer is screwed on. It reduces the 50-60 bar cylinder pressure to a lower working pressure. This is then dosed by a small handwheel (fine needle valve) so precisely that individual CO2 bubbles can be seen and counted in the connected bubble counter. The cylinder pressure and the working pressure are indicated on pressure gauges on some pressure reducers. These displays are not strictly necessary, as - unlike with diving cylinders with compressed air - the cylinder pressure does not slowly drop, and you do not need to be warned when the cylinder is running low. Instead, the pressure remains at its maximum pressure and then drops to zero in a very short time. So, unfortunately, there is no slow decrease of the cylinder filling pressure. The working pressure would only be important if it had to be adjusted, though this is normally not necessary. However a lot of people are happier with two pressure gauges giving them readings.

FAQ
Wie ist der Arbeitsdruck des Druckminderers JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR BASIC voreingestellt?

Der Arbeitsdruck des JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR BASIC ist auf 2,0 bar voreingestellt. Der Arbeitsdruck kann nicht verändert werden. Dadurch, dass der Druckminderer keine Manometer zur Anzeige des Arbeitsdruckes hat, ist die Voreinstellung Auf den höchstmöglichen Druck von 2 bar definiert.

Der Druckminderer lässt sich nicht entfernen

Vermutlich steht Ihr System noch unter Druck. Schließen Sie das Flaschenventil und montieren den CO2-Schlauch von der Druckregelarmatur ab. Öffnen Sie die Regulierschraube und lassen den in der Druckregelarmatur noch vorhandenen Druck ab, bis beide Manometer 0 bar anzeigen. Lösen Sie die Anschlussmutter der Druckregelarmatur vom Flaschenventil.

Pressure reducer for disposable and reusable cylinders at the same time?

Yes, this is possible without any problems with the JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR. If you have the SET U, you can connect reusable cylinders with the JBL PROFLORA CO2 ADAPT U - M adapter. This adapter is already installed in the SET M and can be removed with an Allen key. This makes it possible to install JBL CO2 disposable cylinders in the sizes 500g and 1200g. An ideal option for bridging the gap between bottle filling or during the holiday phase for your substitute carer.

What is the minimum working pressure I need to use the JBL CO2 accessories?

All check valves or backflow protectíons from JBL require a working pressure of at least 0.6 bar for the valve to open. This feature can be found in the JBL PROFLORA CO2 TAIFUN SAFESTOP, COUNTSAFE and INLINE. The JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN diffusers also all already work with this pressure. A higher working pressure is not necessary, which is why all accessories also work with the JBL PROFLORA BIO SETs. Due to installation, a slightly higher working pressure than 0.6 bar may be necessary due to long hoses and other components, which is why the presetting of 1.2 bar is sufficient in any case.

Do the pressure reducers comply with the current standards?

When dealing with compressed gas systems, the safety of the user is paramount. That is why it is a matter of course at JBL to achieve the perfect balance between the highest manufacturing standards and precision. The CNC-milled pressure reducers ensure an exact fit. Internal flat seals mean long service life and robustness. Our internal quality control for each batch ensures that any irregularities are noticed before delivery and that these items can be blocked from further use. Our product is therefore safe to use. Several online marketplaces sell pressure reducers that do not meet the requirements needed for years of safe operation in aquaristics. A short product lifetime and frustration are the results and we choose to spare you this. In addition to direct contact with the JBL team of experts through our Customer Service, you are entitled to the extended 4-year guarantee (JBL GarantiePlus) from JBL.
