What type of regulator is this? Is it a Cornelius type? I want to expand it but read somewhere to expand with a Cornelius regulator you have to have the same type? Is this correct?

I can't say who manufactured that particular regulator, but there's nothing magical about adding a second primary body to a single body reg. All you need is to remove the high pressure gauge from the original primary body and check the threads whether they're righty or lefty.

When you order a second primary the thread for the passthrough port (where you'll install your high pressure gauge) has to match the gauge, and you'll need to get a nipple that has the correct threads for both ends. Both should be easily obtainable, folks expand primary regulators with mismatched bodies all the time...

Cheers!

It's a taprite...i was not aware that regulators varied between commercial kegs and cornelius. I am using the same regulator that i used on commercial kegs with no problems.

You could put a Y in the fitting if you want to expand to two kegs

Or look at distributors to go to multiple without having to buy multiple regulators. The only catch is that all kegs will be at the same pressure.
