PurityPlus® High-Purity Specialty Gas Regulators: Choosing the Best of the Best for Your Fresno Application02/27/2018If you’re new to buying PurityPlus® specialty gases – or buying a PurityPlus® gas from Fresno Oxygen & Welding Supplies/Barnes Welding Supply that you haven’t used before – you’ll need to make sure you’ve got the right regulator for the application at hand. Of course, whatever the application, you’re in good hands for sure with PurityPlus® regulators. They’re built to very precise benchmarks of pressure control, which is definitely essential to the safety and fruitfulness of your work. Not sure which regulator is right for you – or how to go about finding it? Fresno Oxygen & Welding Supplies/Barnes Welding Supply will be happy to help. Any Fresno customer, though, whatever their experience, will find it easier to figure out which regulator they need by following the advice provided and examining the applicable product pages in the PurityPlus® Specialty Gases & Equipment Catalog. Give it a thorough going over before you talk with us, at least to get an idea of what options are offered. While the catalog gives you explicit information on each and every PurityPlus® regulator available, a quick overview of the line might be in order to get you started: Is the gas or liquid you’re working with corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® supplies regulators made for safe use with one or the other. Its brass regulators, of either forged-body or barstock construction, are appropriate for the greater number of non-reactive gases. If you’re using an extremely corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll want one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of highly corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, low-cost alternative to stainless steel when only lightly corrosive gases are used, PurityPlus® also provides regulators fabricated of aluminum. An extensive selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is provided as well. Single-stage regulators, which cut cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a specific range, are best employed in applications where a sustained delivery pressure isn’t critical. 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® offers specially designed regulators, too – with its 400 and 455 series, in particular – for those limited occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t adequate. Those primarily would be applications necessitating the use of unusually corrosive gases or exextraordinarily high pressures. You’ll also have access to cylinder connections in the PurityPlus® catalog that adhere to all worldwide standards. Good thing, 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 Fresno Oxygen & Welding Supplies/Barnes Welding Supply will have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the [[clear|easy|simple|straightforward, step-by-step selection and ordering process shown in the catalog. And, as we noted earlier, if you still need help in choosing your regulator, you can always call on Fresno Oxygen & Welding Supplies/Barnes Welding Supply, right here in Fresno, to provide it.
