Product Description
GSD6 General Service Back Pressure Regulator

GSDM8 General Service Back Pressure Regulator

The 1″ GSDM8 extends the pressure range above the standard GSD8 to a maximum operating limit of 500 psig / 34 bar(g). It can be used to control pressure in pilot scale chemical reactors, such as in active pharmaceutical ingredients or petroleum research industries. Follow the “Applications” tab for more application ideas. The standard stock body material is dual-cert SS316/SS316L, and is also available in Hastelloy C276 or other custom alloys.

GS Series Back Pressure Regulators

The GS Series back pressure regulators are used for gas, liquid or mixed phase fluid control and are ideally sized for pilot plant or manufacturing scale applications. They range in port size from 1/4″ to 1″.

Back pressure regulators control their inlet pressure to regulate the upstream process by opening up only as much as necessary to hold back the desired pressure at the inlet.

The GS series design uses Equilibar’s unique patented multiple orifice, direct sealing diaphragm technology to control back pressure with great accuracy even where high temperatures, aggressive chemicals, mixed phase media, or other demanding conditions exist.

Equilibar GS Series units are 1:1 dome-loaded, meaning that a gas or air “pilot” pressure must be supplied to the dome of the BPR equal to the desired inlet setpoint. This pilot pressure can be supplied by a manual pressure regulator or by an electronic pressure regulator for computer automation.

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
