PurityPlus® High-Purity Specialty Gas Regulators: Choosing the Best of the Best for Your Beaumont Application02/27/2018If this is the first time you’ve considered buying PurityPlus® specialty gases – or you’re buying a PurityPlus® gas from Coastal Welding Supply that you haven’t used before – you’ll have to make sure you’ve got the right regulator for the application at hand. Of course, whatever the job, you’re in good hands for sure with PurityPlus® regulators. They’re manufactureed to extremely precise standards of pressure control, which is utterly essential to the safety and fruitfulness of your work. Not sure which regulator is best for you – or how to hunt it down? Coastal Welding Supply will be pleased to help. Any Beaumont customer, though, no matter their experience, will find it easier to discover which regulator they need by following the suggestions provided and perusing the pertinent 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 available to you. While the catalog provides explicit information on each and every PurityPlus® regulator available, a concise overview of the line might be in order to get you started: Is the gas or liquid you’re employing corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® has regulators made for safe use with one or the other. Its brass regulators, of either forged-body or barstock construction, are harmonious with most non-reactive gases. If you’re making use of an exceptionally corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll require one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of highly corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, low-cost replacement for stainless steel when only moderately corrosive gases are applied, PurityPlus® also offers regulators fabricated of aluminum. A broad selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is offered as well. Single-stage regulators, which lower cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a specific range, are best applied in applications where a sustained delivery pressure isn’t crucial. Applications that do require a constant delivery pressure are best served by dual-stage regulators, which maintain constant outlet pressure over the life of the cylinder. PurityPlus® provides specially designed regulators, too – with its 400 and 455 series, in particular – for those odd occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t satisfactory. Those mainly would be applications demanding the use of abnormally corrosive gases or exceptionly high pressures. You’ll also find cylinder connections in the PurityPlus® catalog that meet all worldwide standards. That’s great, 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 identify a smattering of applications. You can trust that Coastal Welding Supply will have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the simple, step-by-step selection and ordering process shown in the catalog. And, as we mentioned earlier, if you still need help in making your choice, you can always count on Coastal Welding Supply, right here in Beaumont, to provide it.
