The FDO16 is a 2″ high-flow sanitary back pressure regulator with the ability to quickly control system pressure in liquid or gas systems. The 2″ size is conveniently sized for Clean-in-Place systems or as a means of controlling large streams in BioPharma or hygienic industrial blending systems.
FD Series Sanitary Valves
The FD Series are sanitary back pressure regulators specifically designed for use in biopharma, food, and other applications where there are surface finish, clean-in-place, drainability, or USP class VI material requirements. They can also be set up in for closed loop flow control applications.
Like our other Equilibar® back pressure regulators, the FD Series features ultra sensitive diaphragm-operated back pressure technology capable of controlling pressure with high precision over a wide range of flows. The pilot-controlled, dome loaded design will control the system pressure in a precise 1 to 1 relationship with the pressure applied to the dome. This dome pilot pressure may be provided by a manually adjustable spring loaded regulator or by an electronic pressure regulator for accurate computer control.
The flexible membrane diaphragm is the only moving part. This membrane instantly responds to changes in the system flow rate to accurately maintain the pressure at the desired setpoint. The FD series is the most accurate and highest resolution sanitary back pressure regulator on the market. The simple design allows for extremely fast disassembly and field repair using low cost rebuild kits. It’s compact form facilitates a simple process layout.
