Industrial Back Pressure Regulators for High Flow from Equilibar

Back Pressure Valve for High Flow

Larger sizes - from 1.5" to 4" - Low to Medium Pressure

Equilibar offers a unique back pressure valve that offers lightning fast response. By using a friction-less diaphragm and dome-loaded design, precision can be maintained across a very wide range of flow rate.

How it Works

Equilibar’s back pressure valves function by use of a compressible gas set-point on their top pilot port. For example, if you want to control 100 psig / 69 bar(g) on the inlet port of the valve, simply apply a 100 psig / 6.9 bar(g) set-point of air or other gas to the dome.

The frictionless diaphragm blocks flow in the lower position until the inlet pressure rises to raise the diaphragm.

Unlike traditional back pressure valve designs, the unique Equilibar can respond to severe system fluctuations within milliseconds.



The HV Series Back Pressure Control Valve controls pressure directly by matching the inlet pressure to the pilot pressure level.

Equilibar’s unique back pressure valve uses multiple orifices that serve as distributed valve seats. The flexible diaphragm lifts to allow flow, but only enough to maintain the desired back pressure on the valve inlet.

Equilibar Technology: A Good Choice for Complex Level Control

While Equilibar technology is known as the gold standard for back pressure control, its unique qualities offer advantages for complex level control applications as well. Using an Equilibar unit for level control could be a good choice in circumstances where there is a wide range of flow rates, varying flow coefficients, varying downstream pressure or Read More
