Work begins on new lightweight regulator for H2 UAV Drone

Pressure Tech have secured an order for prototype lightweight regulators required to provide accurate and stable control of Hydrogen on a UAV drone. The design must weigh less than 300g and be able to reduce from 300bar to 0.5bar with stable control under decaying inlet conditions. The regulator must be; compact; accurate; reliable; strong; and lightweight! Our 16 years of experience in developing unique product for specific applications will contribute to the success of this challenge, with delivery of product expected in 8-10 weeks!

Problematic hydraulic regulators replaced with LF-690s

Following consistent resonating problems with one of our competitors hydraulic regulators on several offshore platforms, Pressure Tech received an order for 21 x LF-690 hydraulic regulators to retrofit units installed in HPU's throughout the Gulf of Mexico region. Recent testing of the LF-690 by a major system builder in the area confirmed the regulator provided stable control, even under initial start up conditions with 10,000psi differential pressure and up to 4GPM flow rates - without the need for any bypass!

$50k order for Appomattox Project secured and delivered

Pressure Tech's LF-690 regulators went through an intensive test program before being selected for use on the HPU's being supplied on the Shell Appomattox project, Houston. The system builder in Houston simulated various extreme situations that the pressure regulators encounter when operating the subsea valves, including initial start up and emergency shut down procedures with high differential pressures and various flow conditions. The stable and repeatable control (2%) witnessed by the system builder and their clients ensured the LF-690 was specified for this key project.
