For process manufacturers and producers, regulating pressure throughout the process is important for safety, efficiency and reliability. We’ve highlighted the important role of pressure regulators in numerous posts.

During the front end engineering design phase of a project, having good CAD (computer-aided design) drawings are important in determining the best regulator for the application given piping configurations, fluid flow properties & characteristics and pressure regulator requirements.

Emerson’s Ashley Holley shared a great online resource of CAD drawings of pressure regulators.

Pressure-Regulator-CADThese include regulators used in Air, Liquids, LP-Gas (Propane), Natural Gas, Oil & Gas, Process Gases, Sanitary, Steam and Tank Blanketing & Recovery applications.

Let’s look at an example. The basic process is to step through the criteria in the selection process. For the Type 1190 Tank Blanketing Valve, I chose a number of selections based on materials of construction, body sizes, application pressure ranges, internal seal materials, CAD drawing viewing angle and more.

The selections are saved on the web page as they are made and the CAD drawing can be downloaded in many CAD formats (DWG, DXF, XML, etc.) as well as picture-based formats.

These can be imported into the project design documents to make sure the mechanical specifications meet the intended application.

Some pressure regulators require only a few selections and others require numerous selections to provide the CAD drawing information you require.

Give it a try if you’re involved in the planning and design part of the project.

You can also connect and interact with other pressure regulator and project experts in the Regulators and Plan & Design groups in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
