Pressure Regulators from SMC have been updated to the new urban white base color for a clean modern look. The pressure drop across the regulator has been reduced to create a more efficient unit with a maximum set pressure of 100 psi. The locking adjustment knob prevents accidental setting changes. Options include a mounting bracket and set nuts for panel mounting as well as pressure gauges. The modular design of the AR-A series connects with other SMC air preparation equipment of similar size.
Precision air regulators offer precise pressure control and pressure adjustment can be critical factors when working with either pressure fed fluids, air pilot regulator supply or during test and inspection applications.
Electronic pressure regulators control and maintain a desired pressure level in a system or application. They use electronic sensors and controllers to regulate the flow of fluid or gas, allowing for precise and accurate pressure control.
Unlike traditional mechanical pressure regulators, an electronic pressure regulator does not rely on springs or diaphragms to control pressure. Instead, they use electronic components such as sensors, transducers, and solenoids to monitor and adjust the pressure as needed.
Electronic pressure regulators can be used in a wide range of applications, including industrial manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and medical devices. They offer several advantages over traditional pressure regulators, including faster response times, greater accuracy, and the ability to program and control pressure remotely.
Types of Electronic Pressure Regulators
There are several types of electronic pressure regulators, each with their own unique characteristics and applications. Here are some of the most common types:
Digital electronic pressure regulators
These regulators use a microprocessor to control pressure. They can be programmed with multiple setpoints, and some models offer PID control for even greater accuracy.
Proportional electronic pressure regulators
These regulators, like SMC ITV 1010-33T 1N 1000, use a proportional solenoid valve to adjust the pressure. They are often used in applications such as pneumatic automation and robotics.
Piezoelectric pressure regulators
These regulators use a piezoelectric crystal to control pressure. They are well-suited for applications that require precise pressure control.
Vacuum electronic pressure regulators
These regulators, like SMC ITV 2090-2125N5-Q, control vacuum pressure in applications such as semiconductor manufacturing and vacuum packaging. They use electronic sensors and valves to maintain a desired vacuum level.
High-pressure electronic regulators
These regulators, like SMC ITVH2020-03N2CL4, control high-pressure fluids or gasses, such as those used in oil and gas exploration or hydraulic systems. They often use high-strength materials and advanced sensors to withstand the rigors of high-pressure applications.
Booster regulators are indispensable tools for any business seeking high performance pneumatic systems. They allow you to increase the pressure in your main airlines without the need for any electrical input or auxiliary equipment. Unlike many other parts, they don't require a lot of additional accessories to function.
Without booster regulators, your business runs the risk of suboptimal performance of your pneumatic systems, leading to reduced efficiency and speed in your operations.Refraining from using booster regulators also exposes you to potential increase in energy consumption and higher maintenance costs over time.
At Orange Coast Pneumatics, we help professionals get the most out of their pneumatic systems by providing them with high quality tools and equipment. Keep reading to learn all about booster regulators and how they can help enhance your operations.
Why Should You Use Booster Regulators?
Booster regulators are critical for maintaining balance in pneumatic systems. Their primary role is to provide a short-term increase in pressure. This surge in pressure results in faster, more precise operations, leading to increased overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Their unique value lies in their ability to provide high-pressure output, while keeping the input pressure at a lower level. This energy-efficient operation reduces wear and tear on your systems, lengthening their lifespan. With their remarkable adaptability, they are suitable for diverse pneumatic systems, including packaging machines, conveyance systems, and more.
Are Booster Regulators And Air Compressors The Same?
Booster regulators and air compressors may seem similar, but their roles in pressurization processes are different.
An air compressor's job is to generate pressurized air from the atmospheric air, acting as the initial source of pressure. Meanwhile, a booster regulator comes into play after the air compressor, taking the pressurized air and boosting it to a higher level as needed for specific applications. They can increase the pressure to as high as 2000 psi, providing a substantial advantage in a variety of situations.
