Preset 50 PSI EMS Regulator FAQs
How long will my cylinder last?
Please go to O2 To Go Cylinder Duration Calculator.
What’s the difference between a regulator and a conserver?
Oxygen regulators deliver oxygen on continuous flow only.
Oxygen conservers deliver oxygen on inhalation only and do not provide oxygen during exhalation, thus allowing the cylinder contents to last 3 to 5 times longer than a regulator.
