This training defines all the common parts and functions of a pressure regulator including tied-diaphragm and free-poppet type.
This training includes video and graphical explanations of droop, static pressure setting, dynamic pressure setting and supply pressure effect.
This training examines the regulator types and designs used in AP Tech products. Includes comparison of free-poppet and tied-diaphragm designs. Reviews sub-atmospheric, two-stage and mini-regulator design and use.
This training examines the AP Tech springless, spring type and springless positive seat retract diaphragm valve designs. Manual and pneumatic actuator designs are examined. Specialty diaphragm valve designs and common valve options are reviewed.
This training examines the most common regulator and valve failure modes and how to avoid. Leak across the seat, stress fatigue, corrosion, material selection failures and causes are presented. Common questions about regulator noises and condensation are addressed.
AP Tech’s recommended leak detection methods for valves and regulators are presented. Includes static leak testing, inboard He leak testing, outboard He leak testing and pressure decay test methods. Includes Helium seat permeation leak cautions.
This training introduces the user to valve porting nomenclature and applications. The various porting options of AP Tech valves are shown in detail with explanations of how they are used in gas system design.
This training reviews the connection options available for AP Tech products. Detailed examination of faceseal fittings, compression fittings, NPT fittings, C-seal and W-seal and sanitary fittings is included.
