Precise pressure regulation in a small-footprint design
The Model 55 polymer pressure regulator provides high-precision pressure control within a lightweight, compact package. Manufactured entirely from polymer and stainless steel, the small-footprint Model 55 offers compatibility with gases such as nitrogen, helium and oxygen. The regulator features a non-rising stem and a patent-pending Venturi design. Applications for this regulator include precision pressure-decay and leak-testing, medical ventilators, respiratory diagnostic systems, balloon pumps and sterilization equipment. Featuring a supply capacity up to 10 bars and and flow capacity up to 280 L/min, the Model 55 precisely controls output pressure up to 0.7 bars, even with fluctuating or rapidly decreasing supply pressure. The regulator also operates accurately at low control pressures of 0.5 bars or less. — Rotork Fairchild, Winston-Salem, N.C.
