CONCOA has introduced a new industrial pipeline regulator designed to exceed heavy heating and cutting pressure and flow requirements.
The 9940 series industrial regulator incorporates a new high-flow encapsulated soft seat, which has a low cracking pressure. This coupled with a large orifice size enhances the safety and productivity of low-pressure fuel gases. With adequate supply, this enables use of larger heating heads to maximise BTU output.
Configured with a 65mm neoprene diaphragm the 9940 provides stable pressure control. The 9940 incorporates CONCOA’s proven capsule technology [max inlet 450 PSIG (30 BAR)]. The encapsulated seat provides a high cycle life due to the integral positive pin stop that prevents the seat from being deformed. CONCOA’s capsule seat technology also surrounds the seat with a 55-micron sintered filter to prevent debris from damaging the seat. The encapsulated seat is a CONCOA innovation that combines ten to twelve seat components into one assembly, which extends the service life of the regulator.
The 9940 offers excellent flow capacity with a Cv of .45. Outlet pressure ranges offered are 0 -15, 40, and 200-psi. Compliant with CGA pipeline inlet and outlet connections, the 9940 series offers enhanced visibility for fuel, oxygen and inert gases. The 9940 series weighs just over 3.3lbs. (1.5kg).
A new switchover ideal for critical applications such as cryopreservation and environmental chambers that automatically delivers a continuous supply of liquid nitrogen, with little to no variation in cryogen temperature or state, has been introduced by CONCOA.
Houston, Texas, based Thigpen Energy has selected Chart for the provision of LNG fueling equipment and supplies – with construction already underway. Earlier this week it was announced that the company’s eastern European outfit, Chart Ferox, was chosen to construct LNG filling station in Poland.
