Default A Question on CO2 Regulation

If I was looking to put separate regulators inline on my CO2 manifold (inside my kegerator), do I have to use one that SPECIFICALLY says "CO2" or can I use one that just says "Air Pressure Regulator" like the one in this link:

IIT Air Regulator With Gauge — 1/4in. Fitting, 160 PSI | Air Chucks + Gauges | Northern Tool + Equipment

Thanks in advance guys.

Deacon

That looks more like a flow regulator than a pressure regulator. The gauge will just tell the downstream pressure if you are at full flow, otherwise it will read line pressure.

So maybe something more along these lines?

You might want to do a search on secondary regulators.
