The HPR-2XW Series heated pressure regulator is designed to supply heat to samples entering instrumentation systems. It can be used to preheat liquids, to prevent condensation of gases or to vaporize liquids prior to gas analysis.
The modular design of the HPR-2XW consists of heat exchanger and pressure control sections. The pressure control section is patterned after the time-proven design of the PR-1 pressure reducing regulator and provides the same excellent outlet pressure stability. The heat exchanger section is made up of a body and heat exchange element. The heat exchange element uses GO Regulator’s unique spiral wrapped screen as the heat exchanger surface. This screen has up to 100 square inches of heat transfer area and precise design forces all sample fl ow to pass through the element. Completing this modular design is the incorporation of a removable heat exchanger unit. This allows the user to remove and clean, or replace the exchanger. This is especially useful when heating dirty liquids or liquids that polymerize and clog the heat exchange screen.
The HPR-2 Series of vaporizing pressure reducing regulators are both CSA and ATEX approved. The electrical components of this unit are securely housed in a Class A,B,C,D condulet assuring that there is always an adequate fl ame path between the environment and the controller. Safety considerations can be further enhanced by using the optional TCO (Thermal Cut Out) heater cartridge and proportional controller. These features enable the unit to boast a T3 rating with 150 watts of power.
