Low Pressure Control
The Equilibar® Precision Back Pressure Regulator offers unparalleled performance in the very-low pressure region. The device is capable of matching process gas or liquid pressures to that of a pilot reference signal to within approximately 0.01 psi. The regulator can be used to control back pressure down to approximately 0.02 psi.
This extraordinary precision makes the Equilibar® uniquely qualified for high precision / low-pressure applications in the both laboratory and industrial settings
Both the Equilibar® SC and GS Series back pressure regulators can be configured for very low pressure applications. Inform us of your desired application pressure range, and your product will be automatically configured with the most appropriate trim.
Extremely tight pressure control may be achieved using a delicate polyethylene diaphragm. Note that flow capacity is limited at the 1 inWC set-point.
To achieve this superior sensitivity, a standard body of the Equilibar is outfitted with a highly sensitive diaphragm suitable for the application. Materials available include PTFE, polyolefin, Buna N, EPDM, and others. Standard bodies come in SS316L, with PTFE and polypropylene also available.
