Swagelok Company has introduced three new lines of pressure regulators - pressure-reducing, back-pressure and vaporising - which are designed for use in a variety of applications within the power industry.
Swagelok’s ten new models of pressure-reducing regulators have been developed to provide accurate, consistent delivery pressures to processes and equipment to reduce the likelihood of process variability and to protect sensitive equipment.
The new range of back-pressure regulators includes five new models, designed to provide consistent back-pressure control in a variety of analytical and process instrumentation applications.
Both pressure-reducing and back-pressure regulators are available in a variety of piston-type and diaphragm-type designs and all models feature a captured inlet gauze-type filter and fine pitch stem threads for precise control.
Swagelok piston-type pressure regulators are commonly used in analyser zero/span gas control, sample handling systems, manufacturing processes, laboratories, and other systems. Low internal volume allows rapid purging and limits the amount of surface area exposed to contamination. The design mechanically restricts the piston when the regulator is exposed to excess pressure.
Swagelok diaphragm-type pressure regulators feature an alloy X-750 diaphragm and a leak-tight, metal-to-metal diaphragm seal. This mechanically robust design also helps maintain purity of the process media. Diaphragm-type pressure regulators are used in analyser zero/span gas control, sampling systems, pilot plants, hydraulic and pneumatic test benches, research laboratories, and other systems.
New Swagelok vaporising pressure regulators vaporise liquid samples or preheat gas samples. Two models featuring 316 stainless steel construction are available (material traceability is also available).
The KEV series electrically heated vaporising pressure regulator is ATEX (CENELEC) and CSA certified for critical/hazardous environments. The regulator is used to heat incoming gas samples or vaporise liquid samples and operates with inlet pressures up to 3600 psig (248 bar).
The KSV series steam-heated, vaporising, pressure-reducing regulator has low internal volume and vaporises liquid samples or preheats gas samples.
