About Equilibar

Innovators Serving Innovators

Since 2007, Equilibar has provided innovative fluid control technology for the most challenging applications in the world. Our dome-loaded, multiple orifice valves and back pressure regulators have become known as the gold standard for precision. Our team’s agile approach succeeds where more conventional companies have failed, and our responsiveness is second to none.

Equilibar is proud to design, manufacture and test our patented back pressure regulators, flow control valves and vacuum regulators in the USA. We are equally proud to partner with innovators throughout the world on a daily basis.

Part of the Richards Industrials Family

In May of 2021, Equilibar joined Richards Industrials, the parent company of eight distinct brands of fluid control products including Jordan Valve and Steriflow Valve. Richards is well known for their commitment to quality and their emphasis on customer responsiveness. Like Equilibar, they manufacture the majority of their products in the United States. They also have an established global network of experienced partners ready to tackle complex applications.

Let us hear from you

In addition to our signature technology, Equilibar offers a large selection of electronic regulators, pressure-reducing regulators, specialty valves and regulators, and other pressure control products to provide the optimal solution for the most complex scenario. Each application is reviewed by one of our experienced engineers and each regulator is hand assembled and tested to specific parameters.

Equilibar has a quality management system that meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 certification.

We invite you to contact one of our engineers at inquiry@equilibar.com to discuss a specific application challenge. We look forward to hearing about your pressure or fluid control opportunity.
