New Regulator Is Suited For High-Flow Applications
Ross Controls' new high-relief pilot-operated regulator for high-flow applications can assist systems requiring high-relief capability such as welding, blow molding operations, steel, aluminum, and glass production.
In cylinder applications, this regulator can maintain optimal system pressure for consistent operating conditions. For instance, in an application where 100 psi is sent to the regulator, the regulator can be set to maintain a certain pressure (say 60 psi) regardless of any downstream resistance. Though the cylinder process may create increased backpressure downstream, the regulator senses the disparity and adjusts the pressure accordingly.
This consistent pressure helps provide favorable system conditions for high-quality production. Additionally, this high-relief regulator can be installed in a difficult-to-reach location while its control regulator is mounted in a more easily accessible location. Available in ¼" through 1 ¼" port sizes, the regulator is inline mounted and utilizes a diaphragm design. It handles a maximum inlet pressure of 400 psig, outlet pressure of up to 250 psig and has flow rates exceeding 400 scfm.
With its full-size relief port, the regulator offers high-pressure relief of up to 200 scfm. For flexibility, the regulator is available with an optional pressure gauge and can also be ordered in a non-relieving configuration.
