MARINE COMPRESSED GAS OXYGEN REGULATOR
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS AND SAFETY GUIDE
BEFORE OPERATING YOUR OXYGEN REGULATOR,
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Mini Regulator has been designed to provide a constant flow of oxygen from
the cylinder, directly to the oxygen diffuser. To increase the oxygen flow,
turn the selector knob from "0" to a desired setting. Each oxygen
regulator is equipped with an internal pressure relief valve that will
prevent over-pressurization of the regulator. The KeepAlive Oxygen Regulator is specifically
designed for industrial oxygen service only. Use of this regulator for
gases other than compressed industrial oxygen up to 2500 PSIG,
is prohibited, and any user must assume all liabilities and
NOT FOR MEDICAL USE!
stand in front of a cylinder outlet or regulator when operating the
cylinder valve. Remove the two protective covers from the 540 Valve Nipple and the Hose Barb before attempting to connect to
a cylinder. DO NOT REMOVE THE 5/8" DIAMETER
DUST COVER FROM THE SIDE OF THE REGULATOR NEXT TO THE HOSE BARB. IT
IS THERE TO HELP PREVENT CONTAMINATION. REFER TO THE
SAFETY TIPS AND WARNINGS BEFORE PROCEEDING FURTHER. Be sure to
properly inspect both the cylinder and regulator for any signs of grease
and oil. If grease or oil is suspected or found, do not use this device.
1. CONNECTING THE CGA 540 NUT AND NIPPLE INLET
Check to be sure that the valve on the cylinder is off.
2. In a clockwise direction, thread the regulator inlet nut onto the
3. Tighten the inlet nut on the regulator by hand to the cylinder.
4. If oxygen is escaping at the regulator inlet after completing STEP
2, proceed to STEP 3 and then re-tighten. Many times the regulator has not
been tightened sufficiently by hand.
2. OPENING THE CYLINDER VALVE
Before turning on the oxygen cylinder valve, check to be sure that the
regulator is in the "0" position.
2. Stand behind the cylinder so that the cylinder is between you and the
regulator. Remember: Never stand in front of a cylinder outlet or regulator
when opening the cylinder valve.
3. Begin turning the cylinder valve counter-clockwise VERY
to open the valve.
4. If you suspect a leak, turn the cylinder valve off and relieve the
pressure by turning the flow selector knob clockwise and wait for the
oxygen flow to stop. Then, turn the regulator off by turning the selector
knob to the "0" position. Remove the regulator from the cylinder.
Call your KeepAlive Dealer.
3. CLOSING THE CYLINDER VALVE
With the regulator still ON, turn the oxygen cylinder valve in a clockwise
direction to OFF.
2. Allow the regulator to bleed off pressure by observing the pressure
3. When the pressure gauge reaches zero, the regulator may be removed from
Your KeepAlive regulator uses a special O-ring to
connect to the oxygen cylinder. It has a thinner width to fit its’ groove
properly. When replacing the O-ring, do not roll the O-ring onto the grove.
Hook the O-ring onto one side of the groove and it over to the other side
of the groove. Extra O-rings may be ordered from KeepAlive.
2. Your KeepAlive regulator will last many
seasons of fishing if maintained properly. Always keeping your equipment in
the KeepAlive STORAGE BAG even during use, will
reduce damaging moisture and spray.
3. Wipe down with a clean, soft cloth. If contaminated, the regulator
should be taken out of service immediately. At a minimum this oxygen
regulator should be inspected and tested to your state's regulations and
guidelines, and more often if required to ensure safety.

SAFETY TIPS AND WARNINGS
1. Never use oil or grease
with this oxygen regulator.
2. Never use oxygen around or near an open flame.
3. Never smoke in an area where oxygen is in use.
4. Never use oxygen near boat bilges or where gasoline fumes may be
5. Never use industrial oxygen from a cylinder without reducing the
pressure through a regulator intended for that specific gas.
6. Never force connections
that do not fit properly.
7. Never permit gases to suddenly enter a regulator.
8. Refill cylinders slowly to prevent excessive heat build-up and
possible damage to cylinders.
9. Keep out of reach of children.
10. Always be sure that all fittings and threads are matched and properly
for the gas intended.
11. Never use oxygen as a pressure source to clear an obstructed line or to
operate pneumatic tools.
12. Always keep the oxygen cylinder secured.
Do not use organic-based thread
sealant on any part of this regulator. This oxygen regulator is equipped
with an internal relief valve designed to relieve excess pressure should the
regulator malfunction. This relief valve is designed to operate only as a
means of a warning signal. Should a malfunction occur, turn off the
cylinder valve immediately and disconnect the regulator. Do not attempt to
operate the oxygen regulator, unless you are properly trained.
CAUTION: Oxygen is a
non-flammable gas, however, the presence of oxygen
will drastically increase the rate of heat and combustion. Inspect for
traces of oil, grease or any other type of contamination, or connection
damage before operating. Failure to comply with these safety precautions
can result in personal injury or property damage. Do not proceed to use
until all equipment and components are correct for safe oxygen use.
