ControlAir Launches Pneumatic Regulator

ControlAir, a manufacturer of precision pneumatic and electropneumatic control products, recently introduced the Type 855BP miniature back pressure regulator.

The Type 855BP is a compact relief valve that provides economical, high-performance pressure
relief with an adjustable set point. It is a normally closed valve that remains closed until the inlet pressure exceeds the regulator’s set point. A typical application for the Type 855BP miniature back pressure regulator is to provide protection against overpressurization in the downstream portion of a pneumatic system. In an overpressurization scenario, the air flowing through the Type 855BP can be vented to atmosphere or captured and directed to trigger an emergency shutoff valve.

The Type 855BP is capable of relieving at a rate up to 35 scfm (990 Nl/min) and is available in quarter-inch NPT porting. The Type 855BP handles a 250 psi (17.5 bar) maximum system pressure and offers five setpoint pressure ranges from 0-5 psi (0-0.4 bar), up to 0-100 psi (0-7 bar). The push-pull locking knob feature prevents inadvertent pressure adjustment.
