Join us on January 17th at 10am for "How to Select & Size a Pressure Reducing Regulator" - sign up at right. After the event you'll receive Kayla's slide deck and our forthcoming guide, "Pressure Reducing Regulators: A Guide to Finding the Right Fit".
Oversizing can cause spikes in downstream pressure
If your regulator is too big for the application, your poppet and seat will be too large, allowing too much flow. Every time that regulator opens, it will allow more flow than you expect. The regulator will do more work than it should need to. You'll see more fluctuations and spikes in your downstream pressure.
Undersizing can cause faster seat erosion
If your regulator is undersized, instead of having a seat and poppet too large, you'll have one too small. It will open as much as it can to let through as much flow as it can. You are probably going to operate closer to the choke flow range. You are also probably going to erode the seat faster than with a properly sized regulator.
Get expert tips on finding the right fit
On Thursday, January 17th at 10 AM Pacific Time, Swagelok Field Engineer Eric Kayla will lead a live 40-minute briefing. Topics include:
- How to read a pressure reducing regulator flow curve
- How to use a flow curve to size a regulator
- How to size a regulator for different types of media
