All you need to know about electronic pressure regulators

In recent years, electronic pressure regulators have really come into their own. They offer higher pressure, more flexibility and extra robustness compared to previous technologies. That’s why here at Fluid Controls we supply a wide variety of electronic pressure regulators from brands such as Proportion Air, Parker Lucifer and Equilibar. In this article, we will outline all you need to know about electronic pressure regulators.

How do electronic pressure regulators work?

Electronic pressure regulators work by using a push valve and a vent valve to maintain the outlet pressure at the desired set-point. A small inner pressure sensor monitors the output pressure and a digital or analogue controller tweaks the timing of the valves to retain the required set-point. Electronic pressure regulators can be used with air, gas, steam and liquids, depending on your application.

Applications for electronic pressure regulators

There is an array of applications for electronic pressure regulators, this is due to the fact that their main purpose is to provide closed loop pressure control. And this can relate to many industries and applications.

Some common applications include:

  • Direct control of pressurised air and inert gases.
  • Operation of small bore cylinders.
  • Medical/analytical applications.
  • Leak testing.
  • Packaging.
