Control Pressure with Swagelok Regulators & Assemblies

Scroll below to see some of the regulators we offer. To choose among them, first consider functionality, then inlet pressure, then outlet pressure. Finally, consider sizing, materials of construction, and how it connects into the larger system. Want a hand? Please use the "request details" button.

K
K Series
Our K Series includes 17 pressure-reducing, back-pressure and specialty regulators. Variants are rated for max inlet pressure and control ranges up to 10,000 psig. Includes 25 µm inlet filter.
RHPS
RHPS Series
RS and BS regulators have soft/hard seals for pressures of 1,015 psig and 10,150 psig respectively. Tank blanketing versions address contamination and vapors.
Regulator assemblies
Regulator Assemblies
These assemblies offer popular configurations for single or dual stage gas bottle or in-line service with our top-performing K Series regulators. Many options and configurations available.
Filter Retainer Assemblies
Filter Retainer Assemblies for K Series
These assemblies combine the "circlip" ring, mesh, and filter into one piece, enhancing seal integrity around the inlet port. NPT ports are machined to extra-strict standards.
KV
KV Series
A removable heating element vaporizes liquids or preheats gasses to prevent condensation. Diaphragm or piston sensing. KEV regulators carry ATEX, IECEx, and CSA certifications.
RS
RS/RSH Series
RS regulators are rated for up to 101,50 psig and -45°C to 80°C. Several ways to configure loading, sensing, and control mechanisms. Sizes ¼ to 2 in. with flanged or threaded connections.
SGP
Gas Panel (SGP)
Our modular panel ensures gas is delivered at the correct flow rate to the next stage of the system. Any part can be removed via a Swagelok connection, so the panel never needs to be removed.
BS
BS Series
BS(H)4, BS(H)6, and BS(H)8 are spring-loaded back pressure regulators for high-pressure gases and liquids. The LPBS4, LPBS6, and LPBS8 series are designed for high sensitivity.
SCO
Changeover (SCO) Assembly
The automatic changeover system seamlessly switches from one gas source to another to ensure an uninterrupted supply. A changeover station allows for custom changeover set points.
KCM
KCM Series
A two-stage gas system maintains flow by switching sources when pressure falls below set levels. If both tanks dip below thresholds, it balances flow from both.
SPU
Point of Use (SPU) Assembly
These compact assemblies help ensure consistency and safe operation at gas point of use. Customize for top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top flow, mounting method, and more.
HF
HF Series
Our high-flow manual gas regulators use a load spring and special pressure-sensing assembly for precise outlet control. Adjust the pressure by turning the handle.
GDP - SSI
Source Inlet Connection (SSI)
Receive a pre-assembled subsystem connecting high-pressure supply to your gas system. Includes cylinder links, tubing, hoses, filters, and possible vent/purge functions.

Swagelok Gas Distribution Program

Problems with gas distribution can mean losing gas, low quality product, slow downs, and hazards. We offer a solution that combines pressure control advisors and fully assembled gas distribution systems.

We offer analysis to inform regulator selection, identify system upgrades, and produce solutions. We can inspect, consult, advise, then deliver a fully engineered system built with minimal threaded connections to avoid leaks, clearly labeled for safety and functionality, that is easy to operate and service. Your system is assembled and tested before it leaves our shop, and backed by Swagelok's strong warranty. See the next section for literature on this option.

Saving with Fully Built, Leak-Tight Assemblies

We design, fabricate, and test fluid system assemblies for customers, right here in Edmonton.

We combine safe, reliable Swagelok components to produce assemblies for gas distribution, grab sampling, mechanical seal support, and other uses. We also build hose, bend tubing, and make filter retainer assemblies, for example. Design support, fabrication, assembly, and pressure testing are included! We can be onsite at installation too.

Frequently Asked Regulator Questions

What types of regulators does Swagelok have?

Two main types: K Series and RHPS Series.

Swagelok's K Series regulators are common in analytical instrumentation applications. Swagelok RHPS Series regulators are an excellent starting point for general gas pressure regulator needs. RHPS regulators feature a soft or hard seal for pressure demands up to 1,015 psig and 10,150 psig, respectively.

Pressure-reducing regulators reduce a high pressure to a low pressure. This is usually what people have in mind when they think of pressure regulators. Back-pressure regulators control an upstream pressure. These regulators are very often used when a minimum upstream needs to be maintained through a system or where very fine overpressure control is needed. A video above on this page covers key concepts.

How do I select the right size regulator?

At Swagelok Edmonton we typically ask some combination of five basic questions:

What type of regulator are you going to be using? Usually it will be a pressure-reducing regulator or a back-pressure regulator.

What is the inlet and outlet pressure ranges? Generally speaking, you'll want a regulator designed to operate across a range beyond the pressures you are using. For instance, if the desired outlet pressure is 500 psi, you wouldn't want the control range operating 0 – 500 psig. You would want it rated at twice that. The middle is where you get the most accurate reading.

Will you be running a gas or a liquid through it? Gasses can be compressed, but liquids can't. That makes liquids a little easier to deal with.

What is the operating temperature?

What is the flow requirement?

Can you help us troubleshoot a regulator?

Yes, our Field Advisors do that. Here are tips.

A regulator not operating as expected can affect the entire system, making it critical to determine the issue quickly. We recommend talking our Swagelok Field Advisors -- our elite problem solvers. Just click a green button on this page to get the ball rolling.

Keep in mind that every regulator is susceptible to creep. That's an increase in outlet pressure that occurs when pressure escapes, even though the poppet is closed.

The root cause of the problem is in the seat itself. Regulator seats can be compromised by particulates in the process stream, which can cause minor imperfections in the sealing surface. The high flow and small orifice that is created in a pressure regulator combine to turn a very small particle into a fast projectile. This projectile can nick the sealing surface of the seat and cause leakage. Any other damage to the poppet or the seat can also cause creep. Using a regulator with a soft seat can reduce the opportunity for creep.

One good way to prevent creep is with upstream filtration. Make sure you are removing all particulates from the process stream before it reaches the regulator. Some regulators include an integral filter upstream of the seat to help protect the seat. This small filter can reduce the potential for creep and increase the life expectancy and accuracy of your regulator.

What is droop and how do we stop it?

Here's a A droop definition & tips on minimizing.

An increase in flow causes a decrease in outlet pressure in the case of pressure reducing regulators. This is called droop. It is primarily caused by the set spring. The more flow required, the more the set spring relaxes and loses load force, causing the outlet pressure to drop.

Droop can be prevented in several ways. By using a longer spring or by using a dome loaded regulator, the effect of droop can be minimized. You can also use a regulator with external feedback or with a pilot regulator, as they have flatter flow curves than a spring loaded regulator.

Be sure to download all the resources on this page, so that you get a copy of our Flow Curve Technical Bulletin and other guidance.
