Stainless air treatment increases flow

A new range of air preparation equipment from Midland Pneumatic has been developed to give higher flow rates and more precise control of air pressure and flow in arduous environments such as food, water processing and petrochemical applications. The 3550 Series encompasses 316 Stainless filter regulator units, filters, pressure regulators and lubricators. The flow rate has been doubled over that of previous models allowing smaller units to be specified, reducing both weight and cost.
Modular design and construction allows the new 3550 Series air treatment equipment to increase flow and further reduce weight in a Midland Impact 2000 modular actuator control assembly. An Impact 2000 assembly mounts directly onto large valve actuators and can save 30% in weight and 26% of the cost of alternatives by eliminating the need for a mounting panel and extensive pipe work.
The introduction of new 3550 Series has reduced the weight of an Impact assembly still further by increasing the flow capability of the air preparation elements and therefore allowing smaller units to be specified for each application. The flow rate of the half-inch port size, for example, has increased from 2.2Cv to 4.4Cv. If the previous sizing policy is still applied, the result is increased flow and faster actuator movement.
All components in the 3550 Series including filters, regulators and lubricators are manufactured from 316 stainless steel, meet NACE MR-0175 approval and are suitable for use throughout the food, water, oil, gas and petrochemical industries.
