Back Pressure Regulators for Membrane Fouling

  • Equilibar back pressure regulator used as electronic pressure regulator

The Equilibar® back pressure regulator is being used by the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Texas at Austin to study membrane fouling in applications such as industrial water purification.

The stainless steel regulators are being used together with the Equilibar QPV electronic pilot regulator to create a high precision low pressure control for both the membrane upstream and downstream pressure conditions.

The research is featured in the American Institute of Physics’ Review of Scientific Instruments, in a paper entitled ” A crossflow filtration system for constant permeate flux membrane fouling characterization”.

Many industrial and research clients use the QPV together with the Equilibar® back pressure regulator because both devices have sensitive, hysteresis-free performance. This UT Austin application used LabView to command the QPV, creating a high-performance automated pressure control system for their experiments.

High temperature service

High temperature service is key feature of Equilibar's HT series

The ability to handle extreme temperatures is one of the benefits of the dome-loaded multiple orifice design of Equilibar® valves and regulators. Each component of these devices–the body, O-ring, diaphragm, and bolts–can be made from virtually any material, which means they are infinitely customizable. As a result, the superior precision, instantaneous adjustment and frictionless operation Read More
