The following is an outline for setting up a Titan Controls CO2 Regulator (part # 702710). This unit comes with 12 feet of dispensing tubing, plastic washers, six feet of power cord and instructions on flow ratings. These instructions include flow meter settings and a timing chart for the proper PPM reading relative to your gardens size. The Titan Controls CO2 Regulator uses a precision pinwheel adjuster to regulate CO2 flow through the dispensing tube and into your garden. The Setup: Attach the regulator to the tank by installing the plastic washer and then securely fastening the CO2 regulator to the tank outlet. After verifying that the regulator is secure, you are now ready to move the assembly into your garden.
Remember to keep those instructions handy so you can dial in the proper settings. The included CO2 dispensing tube is best placed high in your grow area. Locating it at or near the bottom of your reflector is an optimal place. Attach the CO2 regulator to 24-hour timer like the Titan Apollo 8 or a CO2 monitor controller like the Titan Controls Hyperion 1. Once your timer or monitor is setup properly you are ready to supplement your grow area.
In nature CO2 levels typically range between 300 and 500 ppm but your plants have the ability to handle much more. For flowering gardens it is recommend CO2 settings to be between 1200 ppm and 1500 ppm during daylight hours. By running these enhanced levels of CO2 it has been scientifically proven to improve growth and provide much higher yields.
For larger rooms a higher flow of CO2 will be needed. For these larger applications the use of an Titan Controls in-line CO2 heater (part #702715) is recommended. This inline heater will help you avoid future problems when flowing large amounts of CO2. When running these large amounts of CO2 the gas becomes very frigid, leading to frozen equipment and damage. Installing this heater between your CO2 regulator and tank will greatly reduce the risk of damaging the internal components of the regulator. .
