Fairview’s EQUALIZER Pressure Gauge combines the benefits of a liquid filled gauge with a dry case resulting in the best of both worlds in one revolutionary new product.
The ability of Liquid Filled Pressure Gauges to absorb vibration and dampen needle movement – resulting in longer gauge life and more accurate readings – has long made them the preferred choice over standard Dry Pressure Gauges. On the other hand, liquid filled pressure gauges may leak and the liquid can gel or become discolored if exposed to extreme temperatures.
THE EQUALIZER SOLUTION
VIDEO SHOWS: DRY GAUGE COMPARED TO LIQUID OR EQUALIZER
Fairview is proud to introduce the new EQUALIZER pressure gauge, a gauge designed to solve leakage, gelling and discoloration problems without sacrificing the vibration and dampening qualities of a liquid filled gauge
The Equalizer gauge contains a small flat paddle covered by a stainless steel cap filled with dampening compound. The shaft is affixed to an extended pointer in the back of the gauge, creating enough resistance to dampen the pointer movement. The result is a “Dry Pressure Gauge” that can withstand vibration and pulsation while providing a precise reading average of 99.5% accuracy. The lightweight Equalizer is reinforced and operates in temperatures as high as +200°F (+93°C) and as low as -58°F(-50°C) without concern.
Fairview’s 5 year warrantied Equalizer technology is ideal for pumps, compressors, hydraulic presses, machinery and motors, and is available in pressure ranges from 60 psi/kPa up to 10,000 psi/kPa with 2.5” or 4” 304 Stainless case options and brass internals. Premium versions in all stainless steel are also available upon request.
R222H is the industry’s highest flow first stage residential regulator that comes in a compact size. It is perfect for underground tanks or limited dome spaces.
Seasonal campers are all familiar with the frustration of having to pack up for another winter. For many of us the Labour Day weekend signifies the beginning of the end; that time when we have to come to grips with the fact that our endless summer is about to end. In desperation, we crank up the humming generator, trying to keep warm through the night into the cold shortened days of October. Soon we admit defeat and long for the promise of spring, with its chilly mornings and northern winds, when our need for fresh air and the open road can once again be satisfied. Those of us familiar with camping in early spring/late fall know the importance of a well performing propane system and the frustration it can cause when temporarily taken out of operation.
Seasons will affect the performance of your Propane system and while you desperately try not to take notice of them changing, outside ambient temperatures will vastly affect the performance of your cooking, heating and even the temperature of water you bathe in. Luckily, Fairview has designed a new X-Series of Gas-Flo regulators that perform noticeably better in cold weather conditions, at high altitudes and when tanks are low in Liquid Propane. Gas-Flo X-Series LP-Gas regulators were originally engineered with the goal of being used by Food Truck Vendors with high BTU/h demand 365 days a year.
The two most important parts of your RV gas system are the Regulator and QCC1 Acme nut. A rubber pigtail and QCC1’s btu/h rating should be slightly higher than that of the Regulator itself, in order to maximize your regulator’s working capacity. Under normal temperatures this should work fine, but as temperature’s drop outside, so does the pressure inside your tanks which will also lower the shut-off capacity of a standard QCC1 nut (nearly 50% or lower). If your appliance rating is lower than the reduced QCC1 capacity, a safety device within the QCC1 nut will close and shut-off the flow of gas. Not fun!
Gas-Flo X-Series Changeovers and Two-Stage Regulators are equipped with a proprietary internal device designed to safely allow for the use of higher BTU/h inlet capacities to assure gas appliances always get the full flow of LP-Gas they require without risk of unwanted gas system shut-downs, especially in colder temperatures. In case of an actual gas system rupture downstream, Gas-Flo X-Series Two-Stage and Changeover Regulators will immediately shut down, giving peace of mind and allowing for greatly improved performance in cold weather and other low pressure conditions.
The bottom line is that Fairview’s new Gas-Flo X-Series RV Automatic Changeovers and two stage LP-Gas regulators can greatly improve the flow of LP-Gas to RV appliances year round. So if, like me, you’re the type of camper that wants to start earlier each year and carry on late into the fall (or just never stop camping all year long), the Gas-Flo X-Series is your new best defense against the elements that conspire to stop us.

Forged brass fittings produced using UNS C37700 forging brass bar are the best, safest choice for Natural gas and LP-gas installations where temperature changes and permeation of gases through a porous fitting body could lead to injury of people or property. Continue reading
The CAN/CSAB149.1 Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code Section 6.2.5 states that, “Flared nuts shall be forged.”
But with so many imitations out there, how do you know if you are buying genuine forged flare nuts?
Unfortunately, the North American market has been flooded with sub-standard imitations of forged brass flare nuts.
