Unmatched Precision . . . .
The Equilibar back pressure regulator is an exciting breakthrough in precision pressure control. Designed for critical and demanding processes, the patented Equilibar offers unmatched precision across a wide range of pressures and flow rates.

Sensitivity and Precision Our Key Performance Advantage


Traditional backpressure regulators use springs to gradually open up as the overpressure is used to compress the spring. The Equilibar back pressure regulator uses only a frictionless flexible diaphragm to modulate the presure. It fully opens in less than 1% overpressure in most applications. Our multiple orifices allow us to control over incredibly wide flow rate ratios - over 1000:1 ratios in most applications - and handle two phase flows. Equilibar back pressure technology is protected by US and foreign patents. Learn more about our precision back pressure valve technology on our website (www.equilibar.com).

How the Equilibar Back Pressure Regulator Works


The Equilibar Precision Back Pressure Regulator works like a fluid transistor by forming a unique force balance on a flexible diaphragm between three separate pressures. The fluid inlet pressure and the downstream outlet pressure exist on the wetted side of the diaphragm. The pilot set-point applies pressure on the nonwetted side. The lower pressure of the outlet tries to hold the diaphragm in a leak-tight seal with the orifices. However, any slight excess between the fluid inlet pressure and the pilot set-point pressure quickly overwhelms these seating forces and pulls the diaphragm away from the orifices. The pilot set-point pressure acts in a 1:1 ratio to set the pressure to be controlled on the inlet port. As shown at right, this pilot pressure can be supplied by either an electro-pneumatic regulator or a manual regulator.

Equilibar regulators feature ultra sensitive diaphragm operated back pressure technology that is able to control pressure with high precision over a wide range of flows. Most back pressure regulators vary signficantly with changes in process flow. The stability of the Equilibar regulator is unmatched in the industry. The graph on the right illustrates the pressure control over 3 -4 orders of liquid flow at various set points.
