PurityPlus® High-Purity Specialty Gas Regulators: Picking the Best of the Best for Your St. Louis Application02/27/2018If this is the first time you’ve thought about buying PurityPlus® specialty gases – or you’re buying a PurityPlus® gas from Cee Kay Supply, Inc. that you haven’t used before – you’ll have to make sure you get the right regulator for your particular job. Of course, whatever the job, you can’t do better than PurityPlus® regulators. They’re built to remarkably precise criteria of pressure control, which is utterly essential to the safety and productiveness of your work. Not sure which regulator is best for you – or how to go about finding it? Cee Kay Supply, Inc. will be happy to help. Any St. Louis customer, though, their experience notwithstanding, will find it easier to determine the regulator they need by following the tips provided and reviewing the relevant product pages in the PurityPlus® Specialty Gases & Equipment Catalog. Give it a thorough going over before you contact us, at least to get an idea of what options are available to you. While the catalog dispenses detailed information on every PurityPlus® regulator available, a brief overview of the line might be beneficial to get you started: Is the gas or liquid you’re working with corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® provides regulators built for safe use with one or the other. Its brass regulators, of either forged-body or barstock construction, are consonant with most non-reactive gases. If you’re making use of avery corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll need one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of highly corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, low-cost substitute for stainless steel when only mildly corrosive gases are employed, PurityPlus® also suppies regulators fabricated of aluminum. An extensive selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is supplied as well. Single-stage regulators, which lower cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a specified range, are best used in applications where a continuous delivery pressure isn’t strictly necessary. Applications that do need a constant delivery pressure are best served by dual-stage regulators, which maintain constant outlet pressure over the life of the cylinder. PurityPlus® provides specially designed regulators, too – with its 400 and 455 series, in particular – for those rare occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t sufficient. Those mainly would be applications requiring the use of uncommonly corrosive gases or exextraordinarily high pressures. You’ll also discover cylinder connections in the PurityPlus® catalog that fall in line with all worldwide standards. Good thing, too, because … PurityPlus® specialty gas regulators find universal acceptance in laser gas systems, gas chromatography, aerospace endeavors, welding, high-performance purification systems, water-pressure reduction, engineering and gas management, and onsite gas generation, just to name a handful of applications. You can depend on Cee Kay Supply, Inc. to have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the easy, step-by-step selection and ordering process presented in the catalog. And, as we noted earlier, if you still need help in making your choice, you can always bank on Cee Kay Supply, Inc., right here in St. Louis, to provide it.
