BD24 Industrial Service Back Pressure Regulator

BD16 Industrial Service Back Pressure Regulator

The 2″ BD16 back pressure regulator is useful for a wide variety of liquid and gas services through industry. It is available with female NPT ports (standard), and also with integral flanges or tri-clamp flanges.

BD Series
BD Series Back Pressure Regulators are a family of back pressure regulators used in industrial applications with high flow rates. Competitive valves are often cast from materials (such as carbon steel and cast iron) that do not handle aggressive chemicals and corrode after short periods of use. The BD Series is available in all SS316L and PTFE construction for the most demanding chemical applications.

The BD Series valves are extremely durable and built to last. The diaphragm is the only moving part, so there are fewer components that can fail. The diaphragm is replaced easily in a matter of minutes for a very nominal expense, typically less than 10% of the cost of a new valve. Competitive valves have repair kits which cost up to half the price of a brand new valve and take hours to rebuild.

The BD Series are available in pipe sizes from 1.5″ to 4″ in pressure ranges up to 150 psig (in higher pressure models). They are true 1:1 dome loaded back pressure valves, meaning that 1 unit pilot pressure yields 1 unit upstream pressure. There are many advantages to using our dome loaded design, such as: extremely wide range of Cv with a single unit, frictionless operation with no cracking pressure, and no hysteresis as found in traditional spring loaded regulators.
