Liquid pressure control applications bring on certain challenges not seen in those flowing compressible media.
Namely, incompressible flow brings on challenges such as cavitation potential, water hammer effects and inherent slower pilot operation. These traits of liquid pressure control applications make the selection of suitable regulators even more critical to designing successful pressure control processes. Fisher® recognizes the potential for these challenges, and clearly identifies which regulator and relief valves are suitable for use in incompressible flow applications.
Extensive experience utilizing Fisher® Regulators allows Spartan application engineers to select the right regulator for use in your liquid hydrocarbon, produced water, steam condensate, and liquid chemical process applications. Utilizing the same sizing calculations used when specifying control valves, our engineers will ensure that the pressure regulator is properly sized and protected against the potential for cavitation or flashing damage.
