Pressure Regulators for High Temperature Conditions

Precision back pressure regulators with SS316 diaphragms, graphite seals, C-seal O-rings and More

Equilibar offers many pressure control products designed to deliver unmatched precision for higher temperature applications such as those in the petrochemical industry and catalyst research laboratories.

Many of Equilibar’s Research Series back pressure regulators can be fitted with SS316 diaphragms, which extend the pressure range up to 10,000 psig / 689 bar(g), while also pushing the operating temperature range up to that of Kalrez® O-rings (300°C, 527°F).

While Equilibar’s PTFE/Glass composite diaphragms can be used up to 232°C (450°F) at low pressures, the mechanical stress derating for PTFE at elevated temperatures makes the SS316 diaphragm a more practical choice in most high temperature applications. Diaphragms made of Hastelloy C276 are also available for some scenarios.

HT Series Extends Temperature to 450°C

Equilibar’s HT Series back pressure regulators utilize a graphite seal for temperatures to 450°C and pressures to 5000 psig / 344 bar(g). The Grafoil GTA seal is nuclear grade purity (99.9% graphite).

C-seal Metal O-rings Can Accommodate Temperatures to 700°C in Certain Applications

High Temperature back pressure regulators are now also available with C-seal metal O-rings. Using these metal seals in combination with full metal diaphragms extends the capability of the back pressure regulator to 700°C at a maximum pressure rating of 70 bar. If your application requires higher pressure we can still provide solutions up to 400 bar with a temperature limit of 600°C and up to 680 bar at 550°C.
