New Precision Air Pressure Regulator for Applications That Require High Flow Capacity
ControlAir Inc., a leading manufacturer of precision pneumatic and electro-pneumatic control products,today announced the introduction of the new Type 7100 Precision Air Pressure Regulator. The Type 7100 is designed for applications that require the highest level of regulation accuracy and repeatability with high forward and reverse flow capacity. Relief capacity up to 80 scfm combined with dynamic sensitivity make the Type 7100 superior for pneumatic counter balance applications.
This regulator is a high precision, multi-stage pressure regulator offering low droop, fine adjustment and maximum stability under variable operating conditions. The Type 7100 utilizes an isolated control chamber to minimize output variation and vibration/honking during flow conditions. An integral aspirator tube helps maintain downstream pressure by compensating for pressure droop during flow conditions. The balanced supply valve and rolling diaphragm design make this regulator almost impervious to fluctuating supply pressures. Soft supply and exhaust valves minimize air consumption.
The Type 7100 is ideal for any process requiring high flow capacity and precise regulation of air pressure. It is suitable for a wide range of applications which include air gauging, gas analyzers, diagnostic equipment, tool balancers, articulating arms, medical ventilating, calibration equipment, pneumatic counter balancers, and web tensioning.
- 1/4”, 1/2", or 3/4" NPT porting
- High Flow Forward - allows flows up to 250 scfm.
- High Exhaust Capacity – allows relief flow up to 80 scfm
- Balanced Supply Valve - virtually eliminates changes to supply pressure variation
- Sensitive - control sensitivity to within 1/4" water column pressure
- Stable Output – Isolated control chamber prevents output variation under varying conditions of flow, supply pressure, and temperature.
- Two 1/4" NPT gauge ports
The Type 7100 Precision Air Pressure Regulator is available in 1/4", 1/2" or 3/4" NPT porting. Output ranges include 2-40 psig (0.14-2.7 bar), 2-60 psig (0.14-4.1 bar) and 2-120 psig (0.14-8.2 bar). Maximum supply pressure is 250 psig (17 bar). A wide temperature range of -20º to 160º F (-29º to 71º C). Flow capacity up to 250 scfm (7,075 Nl/min) depending on port size and supply pressure. Exhaust capacity allows relief up to 80 scfm (2,264 Nl/min). Effect of Supply Variation is less than 0.05 psig (3.4m bar) for 100 psig (6.7 bar) change. The Type 7100 Precision Air Pressure Regulator weighs 2.5 lbs. (1.13 kg). Standard options include tamper-proof cover, tapped exhaust, and ATEX approvals.
