The gas regulator on our Argon cylinder for our ICP-OES system regularly produces a high pitched noise due to resonance from the flow of the gas.  Is there a certain type of regulator or setup that eliminates this noise?

We can sometimes reduce the noise by adjusting the main cylinder valve and the exiting needle valve, but it would be great to eliminate the noise.   Should there be a needle valve after the regulator?
