Tantalum Coated Regulators offer corrosion resistance.

Press Release Summary:




With base parts typically made of stainless steel, Tantalum-coated Back Pressure Regulators withstand applications involving extreme chemistries. Regulators do not have any reciprocating shafts, valve members, or pistons because design uses flexible diaphragm membrane to both sense controlled pressure and to directly form valve seal against multiple parallel orifices. Diaphragm may be constructed of PTFE, glass reinforced PTFE, PEEK, Polyimide, PCTFE, HDPE, Viton, Buna-N, or EPDM as required.

Tantalum Coated Regulators Offer Extreme Corrosion Resistance



Equilibar Expands Offerings for Harsh Chemistries



Fletcher, NC – Equilibar Precision Pressure Control now offers tantalum-coated back pressure regulators for applications involving the most extreme chemistries. 



Tantalum is a rare lustrous metal that is nearly immune to chemical attack, even in the most corrosive environments. Tantalum-coated regulators and valves provide the advantages of tantalum at a fraction of the cost of solid tantalum parts.



Equilibar is offering tantalum-coated regulators through a partnership with Tantaline, an international company that specializes in tantalum metal coatings. Tantaline works with leading OEMS and fabricators to apply tantalum to existing standard base parts, creating an end product that is ideal for corrosive environments. In fact, the resulting parts are the most corrosion resistant products commercially available, outperforming titanium, zirconium and specialty nickel alloys such as Hastelloy.



Base parts are typically stainless steel; however other materials may be used. 



“We believe Equilibar’s back pressure regulators are particularly compatible with tantalum protective coating,” said David Reed, Equilibar’s operations manager. “Our regulators have only one wetted metal component, which is the main regulator body. The Equilibar does not have any reciprocating shafts, valve members or pistons because our design uses a flexible diaphragm membrane to both sense the controlled pressure and to directly form the valve seal against multiple parallel orifices.”



The Equilibar diaphragm may be constructed of PTFE, glass reinforced PTFE, PEEK, Polyimide, PCTFE, HDPE, Viton, Buna-N, or EPDM as required by application requirements.
