    Hi,

    I have an Apeks 232 bar DIN and wondered if such a thing as an adapter exists where it can be converted to fit the longer thread on a 300 bar cylinder?

    Cheers

    If it’s really a 232 bar regulator it will be a 300 bar one. How many thread turns are on the stem? A 300 bar stem has 7, a 200 bar has 5.

    I’ve rarely seen a 200 bar first stage.

    And don’t even think about getting an adaptor. Just change the stem if it’s a short one.

    Surely not. I didn't know they actually made 232 bar DIN (I've only seen 300s).

    Why would you want to do that? Is it not simpler to just sell and replace it?

    Your right. I have checked and my Apeks can be used with a 300 bar cylinder.

    Just for clarity, you've got the 'standard' 300 bar male connector? This will work in 200, 232 and 300 bar female connectors (on the cylinders). It's quite rare to get a reg with the shorter 232 male connector; not aware of Apeks doing one for their modern regulators.
