We are pleased to announce the release of a new CSA certified heating option for our heated pressure regulators. The heating option consists of an electrical cartridge heater base with proportional temperature controller, digital temperature read-out, and backup thermal cutoff. The controller will be factory set for 300°F (148.9°F) and is easily adjustable in the field.
We anticipate these will be useful in natural gas and petrochemical applications requiring precise temperature control or higher wattage than our heater block versions are capable of supplying.
Heated Pressure Regulators
Single stage heated pressure regulator designed specifically for use in gas analytical systems. It prevents condensation of the sample gas from occurring as a result of Joule-Thomson cooling during the pressure reduction process of high pressure and high dew point gases or due to low operating or ambient temperature conditions.
Designed with a long, spiral flow path including pre and post regulation heat exchangers , it provides efficient heat transfer which preserves sample integrity. The first heat exchanger preheats the gas sample above its dew point temperature preventing condensation during pressure reduction. The second heat exchanger warms the gas sample after pressure reduction preventing condensation as the gas enters the sample transport system.
A revolutionary product containing four stages of heated pressure regulation in one 316 stainless steel housing. The design of this heated regulator separates it from current multi-stage heated regulators typically limited to two stages. Specifically designed for gas analytical systems, it prevents condensation of the sample gas from occurring as a result of Joule-Thomson (JT) cooling during the pressure reduction process of high pressure and high dew point gases or due to low operating or ambient temperatures.
The first three stages reduce pressure by a set ratio and the fourth stage is user adjustable. This ensures that all stages remain functional and give the regulator the ability to auto correct and maintain its outlet pressure during inlet pressure swings up to 5700 PSI. Inlet pressure swings commonly occur at natural gas storage facilities, making this four stage the regulator of choice for these applications.
