The Genie® Heated Pressure Regulator is a single stage pressure regulator with a self-limiting block heater designed specifically for use in gas analyzer sample conditioning systems. Its stainless steel housing contains a piston style sensing element, increasing reliability and eliminating the chance for diaphragm rupture.
The self-limiting block heater is powered utilizing a direct power connection and prevents condensation from occurring during the pressure reduction stage as a result of Joule-Thomson cooling or low operating/ambient temperature conditions. Preventing condensation of the sample gas during pressure reduction has many benefits such as: reducing regulator freeze-ups, preserving sample integrity, and minimizing analyzer down time and maintenance costs. Since the heater does not require a controller or a specific mounting orientation, the GHR™ can be easily mounted in compact enclosures.
Competitive heated or vaporizing regulators rarely preheat the sample gas. If they do preheat, then the heat transfer is often insufficient. The GHR™ provides two stages of heating (pre & post pressure reduction) to ensure sufficient heat transfer throughout the pressure reduction process. This makes the GHR™ the most effective regulator on the market for preventing condensation during pressure reduction.
