Press Release Summary:
Suitable for use in OEM gas chromatographs and fluidics dispensing for flow cytometry, Electronic Pressure Controllers have 100 ms control response to upstream pressure fluctuations. Providing stable control of pressure for injection point in gas chromatographs, EPC family features single proportional valve. Delivering efficient control in closed volumes like controlling head space above fluid for dispensing, EPCD features additional exhaust valve.

Customized Electronic Pressure Controllers for OEM Use from Alicat Scientific
EPC family delivers responsive liquid or gas pressure control, tailored to application needs
Alicat Scientific has added two new families of electronic pressure controllers specifically for high volume original equipment manufacture. The EPC family with single proportional valves, and EPCD family with dual valves, provide customized pressure control in embedded systems. The small footprint instruments respond quickly to upstream fluctuations to provide fast, accurate control of pressure in an economical, easy-to-integrate package. Alicat offers a choice of valves, valve orifices and process connections to fit customer specifications. EPC instruments are ideal for use in OEM gas chromatographs, fluidics dispensing for flow cytometry, and anywhere responsive pressure control is needed.
EPC and EPCD instruments have a 100 ms control response to still upstream pressure fluctuations in real time. NIST-traceable accuracy is 0.25% full-scale. The EPC family’s single proportional valve provides stable control of pressure in flowing applications, such as maintaining flow of carrier gas through the sample injection point in gas chromatographs. The EPCD features a second exhaust valve to provide efficient control of pressure in closed volumes, such as controlling the head space above a fluid for dispensing.
Alicat offers NPT, SAE, downport, and NeSSi process connections. Both digital (RS-232, RS-485, Modbus) and analog (0-5v, 0-10v, 4-20mA) communications are available to suit a range of end-user products. A choice in valve type and orifice allows for configuration to specific flow requirements for the best speed and stability.
