How Reliable are Oxygen Regulators?
Because oxygen regulators are such an important part of the oxygen supply process, you will want to make sure that it stays safe and sound. If it's damaged at all, it might not give you an accurate reading when you need it the most. Thankfully, more regulators these days are made out of brass cores, which will last a long time without rusting or wearing down. In addition, many of the writings on the outside are now etched with lasers, making the print legible for years, no matter how banged up the regular might become. Other regulators are made out of anodized aluminum which will not rust or corrode, even if dipped in water. As with any piece of equipment, your oxygen regulator is as reliable as the company who made it. Take some time to check out the reviews of the regulator companies and ask medical professionals if there are any companies they trust more than others. In addition, make sure to have your oxygen tank serviced regularly to ensure that everything's still working. If at any time, you feel like the oxygen flow is not consistent with the reading, take a fresh tank of oxygen and attach it to the regulator. This reading should be perfect, and if not, you need to get a new regulator or get the one you have serviced. Oxygen regulators are used in conjunction with other oxygen supplies:
