PurityPlus® High-Purity Specialty Gas Regulators: Choosing the Best of the Best for Your Southern California Application

If you’re new to purchasing PurityPlus® specialty gases – or purchasing a PurityPlus® gas from WestAir Specialty Gases and Equipment that you haven’t used before – you’ll want to be certain that you’ve got the right regulator for the application at hand. Of course, whatever the task, you can’t beat PurityPlus® regulators. They’re built to remarkably precise benchmarks of pressure control, which is definitely essential to the safety and effectiveness of your work. Unsure of which regulator is best for you – or how to track it down? WestAir Specialty Gases and Equipment will glady help. Any Southern California customer, though, their experience notwithstanding, will find it easier to determine which regulator they need by following the advice provided and examining the applicable product pages in the PurityPlus® Specialty Gases & Equipment Catalog. Give it a good going over before you get hold of us, at least to see what options you have.

While the catalog gives you detailed information on each and every PurityPlus® regulator available, a short overview of the line might be beneficial to get you started:

  • Is the gas or liquid you’re using corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® offers regulators made for safe use with one or the other. Its brass regulators, of either forged-body or barstock construction, are compatible with the majority of non-reactive gases. If you’re making use of avery corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll want one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of highly corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, inexpensive replacement for stainless steel when only mildly corrosive gases are applied, PurityPlus® also provides regulators fabricated of aluminum.
  • An extensive selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is supplied as well. Single-stage regulators, which lessen cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a specific range, are best applied in applications where a sustained delivery pressure isn’t strictly necessary. Applications that do need a constant delivery pressure are best served by dual-stage regulators, which maintain constant outlet pressure over the life of the cylinder.
  • PurityPlus® provides specially designed regulators, too – with its 400 and 455 series, in particular – for those limited occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t satisfactory. Those mostly would be applications necessitating the use of unusually corrosive gases or extremely high pressures.
  • You’ll also have access to cylinder connections in the PurityPlus® catalog that satisfy all worldwide standards. Good thing, too, because …

PurityPlus® specialty gas regulators find universal acceptance in laser gas systems, gas chromatography, aerospace operations, welding, high-performance purification systems, water-pressure reduction, engineering and gas management, and onsite gas generation, just to call out a few applications. You can depend on WestAir Specialty Gases and Equipment to have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the easy, step-by-step selection and ordering process set forth in the catalog. And, as we talked about above, if you still need help in choosing your regulator, you can always depend on WestAir Specialty Gases and Equipment, right here in Southern California, to provide it.
