High-purity regulators designed for analytical applications using non-corrosive or semi-corrosive gases.
• Supply of carrier gas/detector support gas for a variety of gas chromatography applications (see table below for details).
• Supply of calibration standards to on-line process analyzers, emission monitoring systems, etc.
• Supply of high-purity non-corrosive or semi-corrosive gases to applications requiring constant delivery pressure.
MATHESON strongly recommends the use of a cross-purge with any regulator put into highly corrosive or toxic gas service. You can easily add a cross-purge to this model regulator by selecting "Yes" for the Cross Purge option above.

A small amount of polychlorotrifluoroethylene is added to the threads to facilitate assembly. For ECD, MS or AED applications where method detection limits are sub-ppm, it is recommended to use a No Lube (-NL) model.
• Eliminates the escape of hazardous gases when changing cylinders

• All stainless steel construction
• 4360 Series Quarter-Turn Diaphragm Valves used throughout
Interstage Relief Valve
An interstage relief valve is sometimes required to protect the 2nd stage of a dual stage regulator from overpressurizing. If the pressure regulator is used for toxic, corrosive or flammable gases, then the relief valve exhaust should be captured and vented to a safe location.
