He writes in Choosing the Proper Regulator for Applications with Corrosive Fluids or Aggressive Environments that, "regulators are highly technical, highly specialized fluid handling components. So, the next time you need one please do not just grab one out of the supply cabinet and install it with the vague sense that it will work. Even if it seems like it the regulator was properly selected, it may not be doing what you think. Contamination of your gas stream or inaccurate pressure are possible results that can lead to off-spec product."
