Pressure Regulators

Pneumatic pressure regulators prevent damage to system components caused by over pressurisation; often they are used where there is a constant demand for precise pressure control, for example, small dentistry air tools or medical breathing apparatus.

Pressure regulators are either relieving or non-relieving; it is essential to understand each type when using them in an application. So what is the difference?

  • Relieving type regulators allow the excess build-up of pressure on the secondary side of the regulator to escape immediately to the atmosphere through a venting port in the device, for use with air and neutral gasses.
  • Non-relieving types do not have a venting port; instead, relief occurs through the operation of other pneumatic equipment downstream, used where the controlled release of gas outside of an area is required.

NBR seals are standard, EPDM and Viton (FKM) seals, used with many other non-listed media including oxygen, are available on request.

A setting lock nut is provided on all models to prevent tampering once the desired pressures set.

Pressure regulators, constructed of either nickel-plated brass or a moulded plastic material, pressure ranges from 0 to 8 bar available as manifold or panel mount with M5 or G1/8 threaded ports.
