Equilibar back pressure regulator to provide stable low pressure control

  • oxidation of hydrocarbons at university of stuttgart

The Institute of Chemical Technology at Germany’s University of Stuttgart is leading research efforts to find improved catalysts for the production of phthalic anhydride, a primary precursor for the production of plasticizers. Previous research in this area has been limited by the need to maintain an extremely low concentration of the o-xylene reactant (<1%) in the catalytic reactor to avoid hot spots and explosive mixtures. Stuttgart researchers have developed a new method that is able to safely incorporate higher concentrations of o-xylene, which provide more predictive results. This method successfully utilizes an Equilibar® back pressure regulator to provide stable low pressure control despite high temperatures and a wide range of conditions.

Meeting the challenges of vacuum holding applications

Vacuum technology is commonly used to hold objects in place for processing or positioning. Vacuum table, vacuum conveyor and vacuum pick-and-place operations are examples of this type of application. In most vacuum holding applications, flow rate and pressure vary significantly during start-up and when disruptions occur in the manufacturing process. While some vacuum applications are Read More
