Versa Adds High Pressure Stainless Steel Filters To The Range Of High Pressure Regulators

Versatile Controls Ltd, who are the sole UK distributors for Versa Valves, announce the addition of the Type AFH-316 series of high pressure stainless steel filters to their range of stainless steel valves & regulators.

They are designed to stand up to the harshest environments while providing system protection from contamination.

It makes the AFH-316 ideal for the challenging applications that are found involving high pressure control systems utilising air or sweet and sour natural gas media in pipeline, offshore platform and onshore gas terminal control valve systems.

The Versa filter is designed to accept up to 6000 psi input pressure and is available in three configurations:
• 1/4” NPT inline mounting
• 1/4” NPT inline mounting with additional outlet port in the cap
• Manifold mount.

The additional outlet port in the inline cap provides for a gauge or alternate signal port, eliminating extra fittings. The manifold mount interface facilitates the connection to a customer designed manifold system requiring an integral filter.

A proven 316L stainless steel housing assembly is available with two types of filter elements, and filter elements. Filter element materials are either polyethylene or 316L stainless steel, with filter elements of 3, 10, and 25 microns for choice of filtration.

The number of available filter element sizes ensures the proper selection for system design and provides efficient contamination removal for maximum protection.

The high-pressure filter from Versa compliments the single stage, high pressure regulator which is also designed to accept up to 6000 psi input pressure and reduce it to a working range of 10 to 500 psi.

The 316L stainless steel construction of both the filter and the regulator is ideal for sour gas and/or corrosive environments and is NACE compliant.

This meets the sulphide stress cracking material requirements for NACE Standard MR-01-75.

As with all Versa stainless steel valves they are suitable for operating temperature ranges of (minus) -40ºC to + 120ºC.
