EPCD–Dual Valve OEM Electronic Pressure Controllers

Essential pressure control for dead-ended OEM applications

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.

Available Ranges (see Part Numbers tab for stock ranges)

  • Absolute pressure ranges (referenced to vacuum)
    • EPC: max 0-300 psia, min 0-15 psia
  • Gauge pressure ranges (referenced to atmosphere)
    • EPC: max 0*-300 psig, min 0*-2 inH2Og
    • *Negative gauge pressure readings (to -15 psig) can also be included in gauge ranges.

Performance

  • Turndown ratio: 200:1
  • Calibration accuracy, NIST-traceable: +/- 0.125% of the full-scale range
  • Repeatability: 0.05% of the full-scale range
  • Typical control response time constant: 100 ms (dependent upon line sizing and the volumes and pressures involved)
  • No warm-up time required

Operating Conditions

  • Compatible gas media: all non-corrosive gases.
  • Operating temperature: -10°C to +60°C
  • Burst pressure: 3x the full-scale range
