Hi Joe

The 2GF flow meter settings for oxygen/acetylene are:
Aluminium 1/8 - 43/40
Aluminium 3/16 - 48/48
Bronze and copper 1/8 - 44/40
Bronze and copper 3/16 - 48/48

The new 3GF flow meter measures in conventional litres per minute or cubic feet per hour instead of the old Metco unit used in earlier flow meters (as a above).
I am told a conversion chart is available in the 3GF manual for converting old Metco units to the new ones. This is also true for the 3AF air flow meter.

If you don't have access to the manual I will try to give you correct settings later today.

Regards Gordon
