M a s t e r P n e u m a t i c regulators are made in a wide range of sizes to suit nearly all industrial requirements for pneumatic pressure regulation. Good pressure regulation is essential to the efficient use of pneumatic equipment. A compressor may supply air at 150 psig, but most of the equipment will operate best at lower pressures. A cylinder, for example, may develop sufficient force for its purpose with 50- psig air. Remember that compressed air is costly, so using higher air pressure than necessary is wasteful, and may also shorten the life of the cylinder. A general purpose pressure regulator is the answer for greater economy and efficiency.
Regulators are of two basic designs. Piston design provides highest airflow; diaphragm design provides high sensitivity and quick response. All regulators are self-relieving, but a non-relieving option is available. A pressure gauge is standard, and gauge ports are at the front and the rear of each unit.
In addition there are precision regulators in all port sizes for applications demanding extra precision in the regulation of air pressure, plus regulators for remote, external piloting.
MODULAR or INLINE MOUNTING
SENTRY, GUARDSMAN, SERIES 380, and Full Size VANGUARD regulators are of modular design. Regulators are connected to filters or lubricators by special modular connectors which seal the faces between units. They may also be inline mounted with pipe nipples. MINIATURE and High-Capacity VANGUARD regulators are inline mounted only.
Port sizes 1/8 and 1/4 or fittings for tubing up to 10 mm. Modular units have durable plastic, corrosion resistant bodies. A non-relieving version can be used with water, oil, and many other liquids.
