PURGES & VALVES
Oxygen and moisture from the air can adversely affect many applications, reducing the quality of products being produced, or affecting the results of tests being performed. Residual toxic gases, if not removed in a proper manner, may be harmful to personnel if allowed to escape in the working environment. In addition, many gases such as Hydrogen Chloride or Chlorine will react with moisture to form highly corrosive acids. Proper purging techniques can avoid these and other related problems. ASGE offers various purge assemblies designed to eliminate unwanted gas prior to cylinder change-out and after cylinder connection.
Many systems and processes require the gas flow rate to be set to provide a uniform flow. Controlling the flow requires the use of valves to adjust the rate of flow. A broad product line of valves includes: diaphragm seal, packed, ball, metering, check, relief, and excess flow shut-off that can be used in a variety of applications.
