PurityPlus® High-Purity Specialty Gas Regulators: Selecting the Best of the Best for Your Indianapolis Application02/27/2018If you’re new to buying PurityPlus® specialty gases – or getting a PurityPlus® gas from American Welding & Gas, Inc. that you haven’t used before – you’ll need to take care that you’ve got the right regulator for the application at hand. Of course, whatever the application, you can’t do better than PurityPlus® regulators. They’re crafted to remarkably precise criteria of pressure control, which is utterly essential to the safety and fruitfulness of your work. Not sure which regulator is right for you – or how to track it down? American Welding & Gas, Inc. will be pleased to help. Any Indianapolis customer, though, regardless of their experience, will find it easier to decide on the regulator they need by following the guidelines provided and examining the applicable product pages in the PurityPlus® Specialty Gases & Equipment Catalog. Give it a thorough going over before you contact us, at least to see what options you have. While the catalog gives you detailed information on each PurityPlus® regulator available, a brief overview of the line might be beneficial to get you started: Is the gas or liquid you’re using corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® has regulators designed 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 a highly corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll need one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of very corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, inexpensive alternative to stainless steel when only moderately corrosive gases are applied, PurityPlus® also suppies regulators fabricated of aluminum. A wide selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is supplied as well. Single-stage regulators, which reduce cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a specific range, are best employed in applications where a sustained delivery pressure isn’t strictly necessary. Applications that do call for 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, most notably – for those isolated occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t satisfactory. Those mostly would be applications requiring the use of uncommonly corrosive gases or extremely 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 favor 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 few applications. You can be sure American Welding & Gas, Inc. will have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the clear, step-by-step selection and ordering process presented in the catalog. And, as we noted earlier, if you still need help in selecting your regulator, you can always depend on American Welding & Gas, Inc., right here in Indianapolis, to provide it.
