    Guide to Selecting High Pressure Specialty Gas Regulators

    Greg Shires

    Step: 1:  Pressure or Flow

    Do you require a pressure regulator or a flow regulator?

    All high-pressure regulators are designed to accept incoming pressure of 150bar+ from the cylinder.    This makes them a high-pressure regulator. But what do you require on the outlet of the regulator.   What does your instrument/analyser/GC require?  Pressure or flow?

    Typically, a gas detection instrument will require flow (0.5l/min) where a gas analyser may require pressure at 1 or 2 bar. The instrument, analyser or GC will dictate what is required.

    Once this is determined then we can continue.
