New Whitepaper: Alternating Feeds to a Research Reactor

Back Pressure Regulators to Maintain a Continuous and Precise Flow Rate

  • Equilibar bpr in alternating feeds to reactor

Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee is a world leader in multiple areas of research including clean energy. Recently, the Fuels, Engines and Emissions Research Center at ORNL has participated in a Department of Energy initiative on low cost emissions control for advanced combustion engines. As part of this research, they have experienced success using the Equilibar back pressure regulator to maintain a continuous and precise flow rate to a catalyst reactor while alternating feeds between two separate gas feeds.

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
