It is appears my acetylene is on the low side. I know you cannot use it all up. When should I stop and exchange cylinders? What would be the gauge reading?
Thanks,
Jack

if my memory serves me, even when the gage sez zero, there is still a bit left.

if i have a job to do, i will get mine filled when it gets close to zero, why wait and run out in the middle of something ?

I think around 100psi is where you should change it.

I would change it at double your regulated pressure setting, ie if you are flowing 8 psi change it out at 16. For industrial purposes I would change at 50.

A full cylinder is measured at 70'F depending on the temp when you last used it/or attempted to use it. It may have more in it then it reads.

Change out when you get close to 50 PSI..

50 PSI sounds like a good number. Thanks to all.
