Self-acting pressure reducers are simple control valves offering accurate control while being easy to install and maintain. They control the pressure downstream of the valve without requiring pneumatic or electrical control elements. This specific self acting control valve has been developed with ATEX approval to act as a hydrogen pressure reducing valve for medium to high flow rate applications.
The pressure reducing valve DM 652 ATEX H2 was specially developed for hydrogen applications. It is a diaphragm-controlled, spring-loaded and balanced proportional control valve for medium to large flow rates. The valve is completely made of high-quality stainless steel with excellent corrosion resistance. Since the body and the bonnet are manufactured by the deep-drawing process, the valve is very lightweight and compact. The valve cone is soft-sealed.
The outlet pressure to be controlled is balanced across the control unit by the force of the valve spring (set pressure). As the outlet pressure rises above the pressure set using the adjusting screw, the valve cone moves towards the seat and the volume of medium is reduced. As the outlet pressure drops, the valve control orifice increases; when the pipeline is depressurised, the valve is open. Rotating the adjusting screw clockwise increases the outlet pressure.
The valves requires a sense line (to be installed on-site).
These valves are no shut-off elements ensuring a tight closing of the valve. In accordance with DIN EN 60534-4 and/or ANSI FCI 70-2 they may feature a leakage rate in closed position in compliance with the leakage classes V optional IV.

Not sure if this is the right product? Pressure Reducing Valves are designed to reduce a high and frequently fluctuating pressure to an adjustable constant pressure downstream of the valve. A spring keeps the valve open and this closes as the outlet pressure rises. These self-acting pressure reducing valves are used to protect all the devices, valves and installations situated downstream from any excessive pressure build-up. Simultaneously the consumption is reduced and the flow velocity and noise are minimised. A spring keeps the valve open and the outlet pressure moves through the control element (diaphragm, piston or bellows) onto the cone, and in the event of rising outlet pressure, proportionally closes the valve. The outlet pressure to be controlled can be adjusted by a pre-tensioned/relieved spring via an external adjusting screw.
