Each vacuum regulator shall be equipped with a loss-of-gas indicator and a gas flowmeter. A spring-loaded diaphragm actuated pressure relief valve integral to the vacuum regulator shall be provided to relieve gas pressure. The inlet capsule shall be a complete module, installed without the use of any tools.
The vacuum producing device shall be an ejector with a spring-loaded check valve to prevent flooding of the vacuum regulator or a CHLOR-A-VAC® chemical induction unit, Series 1420.
