JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR PROFESSIONAL
Pressure regulator with 2 pressure gauges and solenoid valve for night switch-off for CO2 aquarium plant fertiliser systems

  • The pressure reducer reduces the cylinder pressure from approx. 60 bar (displayed on pressure gauge 1) to a low 1.2 bar working pressure (displayed on pressure gauge 2), so that the CO2 supply can be easily regulated
  • Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 pressurised gas cylinder, connect the solenoid valve to the timer (not included) or CO2 control unit (not included) and regulate the amount of CO2 added using 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, low-noise solenoid valve. Reliable sealing washer instead of O-ring
  • Package contents: 1 CO2 pressure reducer with 2 pressure gauges (for working & cylinder pressure) for refillable cylinders, solenoid valve and unscrewable adapter - then suitable for disposable CO2 cylinders

Product information

Easy to install
Screw the fitting onto the refillable or disposable CO2 cylinder. Use a hose to connect the hose connection from the permanently connected solenoid valve 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.

Night switch-off/CO2 control:
The solenoid valve can either be switched on and off by a timer (not included) so that it switches on the light and the CO2 in the morning (and switches off again in the evening) or the solenoid valve is switched on and off by a CO2 control unit (JBL PROFLORA CO2 CONTROL) to regulate the CO2 supply and thus the pH value automatically.

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 (= pressure regulator): 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 working pressure of approx. 1.2 bar. These 1.2 bar are then dosed by a small handwheel (fine needle valve) so precisely that individual CO2 bubbles can be seen and counted in the bubble counter connected. The cylinder pressure and the working pressure are indicated on pressure gauges on this pressure reducer. 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 needed to be adjusted, though this is normally not necessary.

FAQ
Is a tool needed to adjust the CO2 quantity?

No, a tool should never be used. The use of a tool can lead to damage. There is a thin spike at the tip of the needle valve. If the needle valve is closed clockwise and turned too tightly or with a tool, it may break off and damage the pressure regulator.

Do you need a tool to assemble the pressure reducer?

No, a tool is not required and should not be used under any circumstances. The use of a tool can lead to damage. You can mount the pressure reducer on the CO2 cylinder with your hands. Turn only until you feel resistance and then turn about half a turn more. This way the pressure regulator fitting is hand-tight. A short hissing sound will be heard when attaching the fitting to disposable cylinders.

How is the working pressure set for the JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR ADVANCED and PROFESSIONAL pressure reducers?

When using disposable cylinders, the adjustment knob for the working pressure is also the valve for opening your CO2 cylinder. When using refillable cylinders, you have an additional cylinder valve, open this first. The cylinder pressure now shows you a pressure of approx. 60 bar. This means that the cylinder is sufficiently filled and you can continue with the next steps.
Now turn the adjustment knob for the working pressure, the large screw knob between the two pressure gauges, and observe the right-hand pressure gauge for the working pressure. The green range up to 1.2 bar is marked. Open it so far that the desired working pressure is reached. The adjustment of the screw allows the opening up to approx. 1.2 bar.
If you are using a solenoid valve, now establish the power supply so that the CO2 can pass. As a last step, open the needle valve to adjust the amount of CO2 (bubble count) and set a bubble count of approximately 10 - 15 bubbles on the bubble counter. After the run-in period of 24 hours, set the number of bubbles required for your aquarium.

The working pressure on the pressure gauge does not change

When you adjust the working pressure, the CO2 addition needs to be running actively, otherwise the change will not be immediately visible in the event of a reduction. An increase is also visible without running CO2, but not immediately. That’s why you need to ensure that CO2 is added during the adjustment process for every reduction or increase.

The pressure reducer cannot be removed

Your system is probably still under pressure. Close the cylinder valve and remove the CO2 hose from the pressure regulator fitting. Open the regulating screw and release the pressure still present in the pressure regulator until both pressure gauges show 0 bar. Loosen the connecting nut of the pressure regulator fitting from the cylinder valve.

Hervorragende Qualität! Lässt sich sehr fein einstellen, die Anzeigen lassen sich gut ablegen. Nachtabschaltung möchte ich nicht mehr missen, kostet zwar etwas mehr, aber dafür spart es auch 50% Co2
