Hydrogen Pressure Regulators


Mankenberg Industrial Valves

Self-acting back pressure regulators are simple control valves offering accurate control while being easy to install and maintain. They control the pressure upstream 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 back pressure regulator for medium to high flow rate applications.

The back pressure regulator UV 5.1 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.

Changing the control pressure setting does not affect the height of the valve (non rising adjusting screw).

The inlet pressure to be controlled is balanced across the valve seat by the force of the valve spring (set pressure). If the inlet pressure rises above the set pressure, the valve opens. With decreasing inlet pressure the valve control orifice reduces, when the pipeline is depressurised, the valve is closed. Rotating the adjusting screw clockwise increases the inlet pressure.

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 III or 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.
