The Taprite is our favorite dual-gauge regulator on the market. We've used them all and this unit represents the best quality at a great price. Key features are the easy hand adjusted pressure adjustment dial, barbed outlet, one way on/off valve, and built in tank connection gasket. Best of all is the consistent pressure regulation. With many regulators the pressure can 'creep' up over time. This unit is a rock. This is the T742HP model where the HP stands for high performance. Won't freeze up when multiple taps are running at once. 

The built-in gasket where the regulator connects to the CO2 tank, eliminates the constant replacement of fiber washers every time you change out your tank. The one way valve keeps beer from flowing back into the regulator when a keg happens to have more pressure than your regulator is pushing. Grey hand dial is easily turned to adjust pressure without the need for a screw driver. Optional available gauge cage is the best on the market. Low Pressure gauge reads from 0 to 60 psi. Built by Taprite, an American company.

General Regulator Information
A regulator controls the flow of CO2 gas that is under pressure. To ensure proper operation, please make sure that when in use your CO2 tank and regulator remain in an upright position. Do not physically modify the regulator in any way.

Regulators work best at room temperature. If you use your regulator in the cold it will take up to 4 hours for the adjustment to register. For example: If you are at 10 PSI and you change the pressure to 12 PSI the regulator will move to 14 or 15 PSI over the next 4 hours. Once you have found the correct pressure the regulator will work perfectly fine but it will take some trial and error to get it adjusted.

More Tips & Tricks:

1. Are you out of CO2? When the needle reads half way in the red you are about 10% full. You should be able to push another 2-3gallons of beer when your at this amount of remaining gas.
2. What is an ideal serving pressure? For most beers a pressure set at 10-12PSI is the sweet spot. Your beer has to be stored cold from 34-40F for this pressure to work properly.
3. Is your beer serving a lot of foam? Don't panic this is not hard to fix. Your beer line must be 5-8 feet in length for this to work. Turn the black check valve to the close position (as pictured). Release the pressure from your keg's relief valve. Lower the pressure to 6-8psi by turning the flat head screw on the front of the regulator counter clock wise. Open the black check valve releasing CO2 to your keg. Try serving your beer.
4. Is my beer over carbonated? Any beer that is stored under pressure above 12psi will become overcarbonated. If you're trying to speed up the process to carbonate your beer by raising your pressure anywhere from 15-20psi make sure you don't leave your beer at this pressure for more than 2-3 days. If you did this you will need to release all the pressure from the keg before serving and set your serving pressure at 4-6psi depending the carbonation of your beer. After a week you will have to raise your pressure back to the optimum 10-12psi serving pressure.

Can I remove the barb and install the DUO103 1/4" BSP to convert to EvaBarrier 8mm?
Nathan Koeppel on Oct 20, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The barb and the valve appear to be two pieces on my regulator so it seems possible. If you contact Taprite directly they could give you a definitive answer as to whether the other barb would thread on properly.
I want to hook this up to my Blichmann QuickCarb 1/4" flare fitting. What exact fitting to do I need to get this connected properly?
James Cruz on Nov 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Morebeer part number D1121 would replace the barbed fitting that comes on the regulator in question.
What size gas line can I attach to it?
Simone Stowe on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The barb is 5/16" OD so we recommend a 5/16" hose. You can use a smaller tube if you heat it up, or a larger tube if you clamp it down. It is also possible to remove the barb and install your own fitting. The regular has 1/4" FPT threading which is pretty standard and available.
How do I get the front knob unstuck? I think I over-tightened the red knob to the off position. Now it seems to slip so I cannot release gas.
Michael Hoffman on May 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have this regulator. The regulator has a pull/push feature. Pull out on knob to adjust pressure. Push knob in to lock it in position. When in the OUT position, there should be ~1/4" gap between knob and regulator body. When pushed in, knob will almost, if not, contact regulator body. Other than that, I have not had any issue with regulator performance. I hope this information is useful for you.- Dave
I have this regulator but really wish it had a manual pressure relief valve. Is there any way to add something inline
that would do the trick?
Kirk Peterson on Jun 26, 2022
BEST ANSWER: one way to add an inline PRV:
1. Cut the 5/16” outlet tube an inch or two from the regulator.
2. insert a 1/4” fpt Tee with two 1/4” mpt hose barbs (for 5/16” tube)
3. fasten PressureReliefValve into one leg of the Tee
Adjustable Stainless Gas Pressure Relief - 1/4 in. MPT
Adjustable Stainless Gas Pressure Relief - 1/4 in. MPT
Brass Tee - 1/4 in. FPT

What size barb does it have? Not looking for guesses but an actual size.
Adam Keele on Jul 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The barb is 5/16''.
How do I convert my Taprite duel gauge to a triple in order to have full control of two kegs?
Andy Smith on Nov 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The best way is to get a secondary regulator (D1067A). This is designed to attach to a tube from the first regulator's splitter or manifold. Unfortunately, that secondary regulator is not deigned to be directly threaded into the first regulator.
I'd like to use Duotight fittings and "EVABarrier Double Wall Draft Tubing - 6 mm ID x 9.5 mm OD" for my gas line. What is the best way to adapt the fitting on this regulator to Duotight?
Richard Rollins on Oct 11, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The 6mm tubing is approximately 1/4" which will be tough to fit over the barb fitting on this regulator. You might be able to stretch it if you heat up the tubing in hot water before pushing it on the barb. Hopefully that helps.
can this fit 1/4" barb? and does it come with 1/4" barb?
Yuri on Aug 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It comes with a 5/16" barb, which is the standard CO2 size tubing.
Hello, I have this regulator, and the built-in gasket where the regulator connects to the CO2 tank has gotten damaged and fell out, is it possible to replace this gasket? Where might I find one?
Matthew Gubitosa on Jul 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew - If the dimensions for the gasket can be provided, we can certainly help out. Please contact us at info@moreflavor.com or give us a call. Thank you.
Do you sell replacement o rings? It looks like there was one in my regulator where it attaches to the CO2 tank but has fallen out. It's only brass metal in there now.
Ben Piazza on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This regulator doesn't require the use of the classic orings. instead there are gaskets built into the connection to the CO2 supply.

Brewing with gas
My new taprite dual guage CO2 regulator works great. I couldn't be more pleased. My beers are once again charged with CO2 and flowing out of the taps.

Great gauge for the money
Works well after taking apart to loosen the pressure knob. One thing I wish it had is a pressure relief valve

Its just ok
The low pressure side guage is way off. when force carbing a unitank, it would read about 5# lower than unitank does. Other than that, it does what it is supposed to do

Work great
Had a learning curve on how to adjust the psi, need to pull the red nob out first to adjust. other than that looks and works great. also make sure to check for leaks in hoses and connection point.

Excellent control yet need relief ring
Excellent control using the large red knob. The unit did not come with a means to drain pressure from the regulator if the hoses are connected. For example, in case pressure dialed too high and you want to lower the setting before connecting fitting to a keg. Regulators I've had in the past came with a ring to pull to actuate the PRV.

Works, But....
Works like it's supposed to, but the ring at the CO2 connection started leaking after the 3rd use. Never disconnected the regulator from the tank either. Hopefully this is a standard size that I can find at my local weld shop
