The Equilibar back pressure control valve is now available in a sanitary Single Use Design (SD Series) to accommodate the rapidly expanding requirements of BioPharma industry. Single use systems (SUS) require lower cost components that can be sterilized through irradiation and disposed of after use. The patent pending Equilibar® SD series is manufactured using USP Class VI polymers that can be sterilized as an assembly. Only the wetted components and diaphragm are disposable, and are inserted into a permanent stainless steel support housing for quick and easy assembly.

The Equilibar Single Use back pressure regulator features the same dome-loaded multiple orifice technology as all Equilibar patented products, delivering instantaneous control, frictionless operation, superior precision, and exceptionally wide flow rate ranges. Its strengths are particularly well suited to control the transmembrane pressure in tangential flow filtration control applications.

In addition to pressure control applications, the Equilibar sanitary valve can be used in on/off and flow control applications in single use processes. Potential advantages for on/off applications include the simple construction, ease of computer automation and low pressure drop.

dome loaded regulators in water technology

Equilibar’s Jeff Jennings shares his expertise on dome loaded regulators in Water Technology Magazine

The May/June issue of Water Technology Magazine features a six-page article by Equilibar founder Jeff Jennings that provides an overview of dome loaded regulators. The article compares dome-loaded technology to traditional spring-loaded technology. It also explains the differences between a pressure reducing regulator and a back pressure regulator. “Over the years we’ve learned that there Read More
