Low Pressure Relieving Regulator

Back Pressure Regulator controls to 0.02 psig

Equilibar offers a regulator that controls pressure in the millibar range with extremely high sensitivity and stability.

Unlike traditional pressure reducing regulators that open to increase pressure, these relieving-type or backpressure-type regulators open up to reduce pressure.

Equilibar’s relieving back pressure regulators are dome-loaded and use a 1:1 air pilot pressure on their dome to communicate the set-point. The set-point signal can be communicated by either manual or electro-pneumatic pilot regulator.

Relieving pressure regulators are available in a wide range of sizes:

The following chart illustrates the ability of the Equilibar back pressure regulator to control in the range of 3 inWC (inches of H2O).
