Jan 17 Webinar: Sizing Pressure Regulators

Sign up for tips on finding the right fit + a new guide

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.

Additional information

  • About the presenter: Eric Kayla joined Swagelok 17 years ago. He started at the Solon, Ohio, headquarters as a laboratory engineer, working on high-purity fittings and pipe fittings. Then he switched over to new-product development. Eventually, he also put in some time in assembly engineering and assembly supervising. In 2005, after earning a master's degree in engineering at University of Akron, he moved to San Diego and became a field engineer. Today Eric travels the West in three countries. In the United States, his territory includes everything from the Pacific Coast inland to New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming. He handles Alaska and Hawaii too. In Canada, his territory is Manitoba and west. And to the south, he handles Mexico's Baja Peninsula. He spends at least half his time on the road, meeting customers and discussing their needs. While he is well versed on the entire Swagelok product line, Eric has a particular interest in regulators.
