Victor D1G Dome Load Regulator Achieves Stable Delivery, Higher Gas Flow Rates
November 11, 2019
Annapolis Junction, Md. – Victor®, an ESAB brand, has introduced its new D1G Dome Load Regulator at FABTECH 2019, November 11-14, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Built to handle exceptionally high gas flow rates, the D1G regulator provides very stable delivery at flow rates exceeding 30,000 cubic feet per hour, such as for tube trailers, cylinder bundles and gas bundles. It is available with four different inlet fittings: no fitting, CGA 580 (inert gas), CGA 540 (oxygen) and CGA 590 (industrial air).
“High flow applications, such as a 10kW laser, require more nitrogen, so we increased the diameter of the inlet and outlet ports by 50 percent compared to our previous design,” says John Henderson, Sr. Director – Industrial & Specialty Gas Products, ESAB. “We moved from a 100-micron filter to a 50-micron filter to better prevent contamination and keep internal components cleaner. The filter is easily replaceable by simply removing the retaining ring holding it in place.”
Henderson notes that the D1G design eliminates pressure drop as demand increases. It functions similarly to a two-stage regulator, but without the sacrifice in flow capacity.
“Other high-flow regulators use a separate dome regulator and a pilot regulator, but the D1G incorporates them into one piece, which is why we refer to the D1G as a pilot dome load regulator,” he says. “The Victor design makes it easier to remotely control On/Off because there’s only one component to control.”
