EPCD–Series: Dual Valve OEM Electronic Pressure Controllers

Dual-valve electronic pressure controllers use two proportional valves to precisely control the pressure of gases within closed or dead-ended volumes. They are highly customizable for easy integration within original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products. Alicat’s EPCD delivers high accuracy and fast, droop-free closed-loop control in a compact, competitively-priced package.

  • Repeatable. EPCD pressure regulators deliver NIST-traceable accuracy, reliable control and adjustable PID valve tuning to keep your product operation repeatable.
  • Efficient. Waste no more. The dual-valve design incorporates a second proportional valve to release excess pressure, which eliminates the need to continuously bleed costly gas.
  • Configurable. We can customize the valves, ports, sensors and communications to precisely suit your product design and application requirements.

Fluidic dispensing for flow cytometry

Dual–valve EPCDs control the head space pressures to propel the sheath fluid and the cellular sample through the flow cytometer’s laser. High EPCD accuracy and wide usable ranges make possible the dispensing of precise amounts of fluid.
