How do I control the flow of a non-positive displacement pump using a back pressure regulator?
By David Reed
David Reed is vice president of operations for Equilibar and has more than 30 years of experience in the pressure control industry. His practical videos demonstrating fluid control technology have attracted a strong following on YouTube. In this video, David explains how a BPR can be used to control the flow of a non-positive displacement pump and when an engineer should consider this option. While the video uses an Equilibar back pressure regulator to illustrate the method, almost any BPR would work in a similar fashion.
