Gulf Buster Air Filter Regulator Built to Withstand Corrosive Salt Water Environments

AMHERST, NH, USA - February, 2008 -- ControlAir Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of the Type-300 Gulf Buster Filter Regulator. This unit incorporates all of the operating features of ControlAir's popular Type-300 Filter Regulator, but also features stainless steel trim and internal construction. All external hardware including fasteners, drain valve and adjusting stem as well the internal valve stem are constructed of stainless steel. The unit is designed to standup to harsh salt water environments. The Gulf Buster utilizes aluminum body construction which is an economical alternative to filter regulators of all stainless construction. However, the Gulf Buster ensures that corrosion points of typical filter regulators (adjust stem, drain valve, assembly hardware) receive maximum resistance to salt laden environments.

STABLE OUTPUT and REPEATABILITY - provides constant control under variable flow rates and supply pressures
LOW DROOP AT HIGH FLOW LEVELS - aspirator design helps maintain set pressure at higher flow levels
TIGHT SHUTOFF - a soft, rubberized valve provides a positive shutoff and compensates for dirt and other foreign matter
LOW AIR CONSUMPTION - decreases operating cost
TAPPED EXHAUST - allows remote venting media

The Type-300 Gulf Buster Filter Regulator is designed specifically for use in corrosive salt water environments and provides instrument quality air to valves, pneumatic controllers, transmitters, transducers, valve positioners, air cylinders, and a wide range of pneumatic control systems. The Type-300 Gulf Buster is ideal for oil and gas platform applications. Other applications include petrochemical processing, both on and offshore; food; pulp and paper; pharmaceutical processing; pollution control; wastewater treatment and research projects.

The Type-300 Gulf Buster Filter Regulator is available in ¼" NPT porting. Output ranges include 0-30 psig, 0-60 psig and 0-100 psig. Maximum supply pressure is 250 psig. Standard mounting allows for pipe or through body. Temperature limits range from -20º F to 180º F (-29º C to 82º C). Flow capacity is 20 scfm at 100 psig supply with 20 psig output. Exhaust capacity is 0.1 scfm with downstream 5 psig above set point. Air consumption is less than 5 scfh. Effect of Supply Variation is less than 0.2 psig for 25 psig change. The Type-300 Gulf Buster Filter Regulator weights 1.6 lb.
