This series is designed to control back pressure at low to moderate pressure ranges with relatively high flow. While designed primarily for instrumentation systems and similar to the PR7, the BP8 is also suitable for pilot plant, research and development activities. Special diaphragm and spring combinations give the user a selection of pressure ranges that are near atmospheric. The glass filled PTFE/stainless seat assembly gives tight shut off even at lower flows for most applications.
The 316 stainless steel body assembly provides service for most chemical environments and brass models are available for those applications not requiring that type of corrosion resistance. If special requirements demand other materials of construction, please contact us for more information.
