Walter Conducts Site Visit to Remedy Customer Issue
19 April 2021Walter Koh, our Sales Manager for SE Asia and China, recently conducted a site visit to review a customer's application and help resolve performance issues with their existing set-up.
With two spring-loaded pressure regulators on an Argon process line, our customer experienced droop at 1,500Nm³/hr flow rate as the supply pressure gradually decreased from 200 bar to 100 bar, while trying to maintain outlet pressure at 40 bar - this was not acceptable for their process requirement.
Droop is a natural occurrence in spring-loaded regulators due to the change in the compressive load properties of the spring as the regulator opens and closes.
We recommended to change their existing regulators to our dome-loaded HF301, using supply pressure to charge the dome via our LF540 pilot regulator.
Our customer was under a tight deadline to complete their FAT. We supplied two dome-loaded HF301 pressure regulators within 6 weeks lead time to meet client’s schedule.
It was a great team effort between the Pressure Tech Ltd Sales, Design, Manufacturing, and Assembly teams to provide a perfect solution to our customer's application.
