Default nitrogen regulators

ok, so i'm looking at my new nitrogen regulators and the gauges and wondering some things. first, the rated outlet is 5-200PSIG the gauge starts pretty much at 20 PSI, is this too high for draught equipment? i'm hoping not, this was a good score and i hate to not be able to use it. can i just change the operating pressure gauge on it to get the lower spectrum of pressure?

Maybe contact the manufacturer and ask them?? They may have a model better suited, or a replacement guage with lower calibration.

You should be able to change the pressure gauge with no problems. Just remember that the new one's max will probably be way lower than what the max pressure of the system is. This shouldn't really cause any problems because you won't be using that high of a pressure anyway.

It is my understanding that the serving pressure for nitro taps is much higher than with plain CO2. A buddy of mine with a nitro tap usually serves at around 32 psi.
