Gas Management System Provides Continuous Pressure And Flow
Concoa introduces a new integrated gas management system that offers continuous pressure and flow control from liquid can or high-pressure cylinder sources. With control that can be selected with the push of a button or remotely with proprietary I-LINK communication, the fully automatic 642 Series IntelliSwitch IITM features an onboard web server with embedded software for remote diagnostics and real-time process control.
Software logic lowers yearly gas costs by eliminating liquid can vent loss and excess residual return. The IntelliSwitch II handles the metal fabrication industries. Applications include argon, nitrogen and oxygen in the primary steel industry; argon, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen in metal fabrication; nitrogen and oxygen in the chemical and the refining industries; and argon, carbon dioxide, nitrogen or Helium in defense and aerospace.
Series 642’s integral web server enables remote access. In addition, integrated Ethernet connectivity provides for seamless network integration. It also features e-mail notification for 24/7 system monitoring, and Low-Loss technology that reduces residual return. An electronic economizer eliminates liquid can vent loss, a NEMA-4 cabinet allows for easier installation, and an internal-balance stem-line regulator ensures total process control.
Regulator and valve bodies are brass bar stock; valve seats are Neoprene and Viton, seals are PTFE and Viton; and the enclosure is NEMA 4 powder-coated steel. Specifications include a 40-micron filter, maximum inlet pressure of 3,000 PSI (210 BAR), and a 0 to 140-degree temperature range. Weight is 67 pounds, flow capacity is Cv is 1.0, and power requirements are selectable 110 or 220 VAC.
