February 21, 2019 -- ControlAir Inc., a manufacturer of precision pneumatic and electro-pneumatic control products, announced the introduction of the high flow capacity Type 7000 Precision Air Pressure Regulator. The Type 7000 is designed to provide regulation accuracy and repeatability during variable high flow conditions. The large port size options and construction make it suitable to be used in arange of pneumatic control systems.
The Type 7000 utilizes an isolated control chamber to minimize output variation and vibration/honking during flow conditions. An integral aspirator tube helps maintain downstream pressure by compensating for pressure drop during flow conditions. The balanced supply valve virtually eliminates changes to supply pressure variation. Soft supply and exhaust valves minimize air consumption.
The Type 7000 is ideal for any process requiring high flow capacity and precise regulation of air pressure. It is suitable for a range of applications which include air gauging, gas analyzers, diagnostic equipment, tool balancers, articulating arms, medical ventilating, calibration equipment, pneumatic counter balancers, and web tensioning.
The Type 7000 Precision Air Pressure Regulator is available in 1/4", 1/2" or 3/4" NPT porting. Output ranges include 0-2 psig (0-0.15 bar), 0-10 psig (0-0.69 bar), 0-30 psig (0-2 bar), 0-60 psig (0-4 bar), 0-100 psig (0-6.89 bar), 0-150 psig (0-10 bar) and 0-200 psig (0-13.8 bar). Maximum supply pressure is 250 psig (17.5 bar). A temperature range of -40º to 200º F (-40º to 93º C). Flow capacity up to 250 scfm (7,075 Nl/min) depending on port size and supply pressure. Exhaust capacity is 30 scfm (849 Nl/min) with downstream 5 psig (0.35 bar) above 20 psig (1.38 bar) set point. Effect of Supply Variation is less than 0.3 psig (0.007 bar) for 100 psig (6.7 bar) change. The Type 7000 Precision Air Pressure Regulator weighs 2.5 lbs. (1.13 kg). Standard options include tamper-proof cover, tapped exhaust, non-relieving, and ATEX approvals.
