Press Release Summary:
PCM Modulating Pilot Control valve opens in proportion to overpressure to minimize emissions and product loss. Set pressure is not affected by constant or variable backpressure. ASME NB Certified for air, gas, vapor, and liquid services, unit is offered in sizes 1 x 2 in. through 8 x 10 in. with set-pressure range from 15-2,220 psig. Standard valve has all stainless steel construction and may be converted to NACE-compliant materials for sour-gas service.
Original Press Release:
Modulating Pilot Control Valve Available with Set Pressure Range to 2220 PSIG
Brecksville, OH-Farris Engineering announces a higher-pressure model of its PCM Modulating Pilot Control for the Series 3800 pilot operated pressure relief valves. The new PCM offers an extended set pressure to 2220 psig. Farris Engineering is a division of Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Corporation.
Like the original non-flowing PCM Modulating Pilot Control, the higher pressure control opens in proportion to the overpressure to minimize emissions and product loss as well as to reduce noise. It shares other features including reducing water hammer that can cause undue stress in piping systems; a set pressure that is not affected by constant or variable backpressure; and direct interchangeability with a snap-acting pilot control in the field, providing both time and cost savings.
The PCM Modulating Pilot Control is ASME NB Certified for air, gas, and vapor and liquid services. It is available in sizes 1" x 2" through 8" x 10" with set pressure range from 15 to 2220 psig. Typical blowdown is 3-6% with a minimum 3 psi. The standard PCM features all stainless steel construction and is easily converted to NACE compliant materials for sour gas service.
Farris Engineering designs and manufactures a wide range of spring-loaded and pilot-operated pressure relief valves in ISO 9001:2000 certified facilities in the US and Canada. Farris valves are in operation worldwide in the hydrocarbon processing, petrochemical, natural gas production, and general processing industries.
