The FDO6 is a sanitary back pressure regulator with 3/4″ sanitary clamps. With a Flow Coefficient (Cv) of 4.0, it is ideal for liquid flow rates between 0.1 and 50 gallons/minute.
The FD Series back pressure regulator family is specifically designed as a sanitary regulator for use in biopharma, food, consumer products and other applications where surface finish or USP class VI material are required.
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 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 has extremely high resolution sanitary back pressure regulator and has precise control across a very wide range of flow. The simple design allows for extremely fast disassembly and field repair using low cost rebuild kits. The compact design facilitates a simple process layout.
