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

If this is the first time you’ve contemplated purchasing PurityPlus® specialty gases – or you’re purchasing a PurityPlus® gas from Greco Gas that you haven’t used before – you’ll need to make certain you get the right regulator for your particular job. Of course, whatever the usage, you can’t beat PurityPlus® regulators. They’re designed to tremendously precise criteria of pressure control, which is definitely essential to the safety and efficacy of your work. In the dark about which regulator is most appropriate for you – or how to hunt it down? Greco Gas will be pleased to help. Any Pittsburgh customer, though, their experience notwithstanding, will find it easier to establish which regulator they need by following the guidelines provided and reviewing the relevant product pages in the PurityPlus® Specialty Gases & Equipment Catalog. Study it before you get hold of us, at least to see what options are offered.

While the catalog provides detailed information on every PurityPlus® regulator available, a quick overview of the line might be in order to get you started:

  • Is the gas or liquid you’re employing corrosive or non-corrosive? PurityPlus® offers regulators designed 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 applying avery corrosive gas in its anhydrous form, you’ll need one of the PurityPlus® regulators made of very corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. As a lightweight, inexpensive substitute for stainless steel when only mildly corrosive gases are used, PurityPlus® also provides regulators built of aluminum.
  • An extensive selection of single-stage regulators and dual-stage regulators is supplied as well. Single-stage regulators, which cut cylinder pressure in one step to deliver pressure within a stipulated range, are best applied in applications where a sustained delivery pressure isn’t strictly necessary. Applications that do require a constant delivery pressure are best served by dual-stage regulators, which maintain constant outlet pressure over the life of the cylinder.
  • PurityPlus® supplies specially designed regulators, too – with its 400 and 455 series, most notably – for those odd occasions when a standard single- or dual-stage regulator isn’t satisfactory. Those primarily would be applications requiring the use of unusually corrosive gases or exextraordinarily high pressures.
  • You’ll also discover cylinder connections in the PurityPlus® catalog that meet all worldwide standards. That’s great, too, because …

PurityPlus® specialty gas regulators find universal approval in laser gas systems, gas chromatography, aerospace activities, 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 trust Greco Gas to have the PurityPlus® the regulator you need. Just follow the straightforward, step-by-step selection and ordering process set out in the catalog. And, as we said above, if you still need help in making your choice, you can always bank on Greco Gas, right here in Pittsburgh, to provide it.
