PurityPlus® High-Purity Specialty Gas Regulators: Selecting the Best of the Best for Your Springfield Application02/27/2018If you’ve never before purchased PurityPlus® specialty gases – or you’re purchasing a PurityPlus® gas from ILMO Products Company that you haven’t used before – you’ll have to make sure you’ve got the right regulator for your application. Of course, whatever the task, you’re in good hands for sure with PurityPlus® regulators. They’re built to exceptionally precise benchmarks of pressure control, which is utterly essential to the safety and efficacy of your work. Not sure which regulator is most appropriate for you – or how to track it down? ILMO Products Company will glady help. Any Springfield customer, though, regardless of their experience, will find it easier to discover which regulator they need by following the guidelines provided and examining the pertinent product pages in the PurityPlus® Specialty Gases & Equipment Catalog. Take a look at it before you contact us, at least to get familiar with what options are available to you. While the catalog provides explicit information on every PurityPlus® regulator available, a brief overview of the line might be beneficial to get you started: Is the gas or liquid you’re working with corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® provides regulators crafted for safe use with one or the other. Its brass regulators, of either forged-body or barstock construction, are suitable for the greater number of non-reactive gases. If you’re using a highly corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll have to have one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of very corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, low-cost alternative to stainless steel when only lightly corrosive gases are applied, PurityPlus® also suppies regulators made of aluminum. A broad selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is offered as well. Single-stage regulators, which lessen cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a limited range, are best used in applications where a sustained delivery pressure isn’t strictly necessary. Applications that do demand a constant delivery pressure are best served by dual-stage regulators, which maintain constant outlet pressure over the life of the cylinder. PurityPlus® supplies specially designed regulators, too – with its 400 and 455 series, most significantly – for those isolated occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t satisfactory. Those chiefly would be applications demanding the use of unusually corrosive gases or extremely high pressures. You’ll also discover cylinder connections in the PurityPlus® catalog that adhere to all worldwide standards. That’s a relief, too, because … PurityPlus® specialty gas regulators find universal acceptance in laser gas systems, gas chromatography, aerospace activities, welding, high-performance purification systems, water-pressure reduction, engineering and gas management, and onsite gas generation, just to call out a smattering of applications. You can trust that ILMO Products Company will have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the simple, step-by-step selection and ordering process set out in the catalog. And, as we noted earlier, if you still need help in making your choice, you can always count on ILMO Products Company, right here in Springfield, to provide it.
