Spunding Valve Build: Using Primefit CR1401G Replacement Air Regulator
A Spunding Valve allows you to maintain a set pressure. If pressure in the vessel exceeds the set point, it is expelled. It generally consists of an adjustable PRV valve, a tee, a gauge and a way to connect to your keg.

Most of our builds consist of a PRV Valve + tee + gauge + connection option. Generally four parts in total. The build detailed in this post utilizes Primefit’s CR1401G Replacement Air Regulator. That one piece replaces the tee and gauge.
