Regulating Valves > SB Tank Pressure RegulatorConcept

The Tank Pressure Regulator is typically used on tanks within the brewing industry. The purpose of the regulator is to maintain and regulate top pressure on pressure tanks during filling, processing and emptying.

Working principle

The valve unit is supplied with variable setting, the relieving pressure is adjusted to the required working pressure in the tank. When tank top pressure exceeds preset pressure, gas leaves the regulator through the vent port either for atmospheric discharge or for collection. If the tank top pressure decreases, gas is supplied through the gas supply connection at the bottom.

Standard design

The pressure regulator comprises a single valve unit including pressure exhaust valve, pressure supply valve and connection for pressure gauge. On top is a vent port with outlet connection. Tank connection at side branch is normally connected to the pipe leading to the tank top. It is also possible to incorporate the Tank Pressure Regulator in a flow panel.

Construction

The tank pressure regulator consists of single valve unit incorporating a pressure exhaust valve, a pressure-supply valve and a connection for a pressure gauge. The pressure regulator can be supplied with a valve with different versions of the spring/regulating unit:

Fixed setting (only one pressure)
Variable setting
Pneumatic actuator

SB Tank Pressure Regulator

The regulator can be integrated with a SCANDI BREW© tank top system.

Operating principle

The valve unit is supplied with either with a fixed setting or a variable setting, which adjusts the relieving pressure to the required working pressure in the tank. When tank top pressure exceeds the preset pressure, the regulator releases the gas through the vent port either for atmospheric discharge or for collection. If the tank top pressure decreases, gas is supplied through the gas supply connection at the bottom.

Cleaning-in-place (CIP)

The tank pressure regulator requires cleaning between every batch. It is incorporated into the tank CIP procedure by means of the optional CIP adaptor. Before cleaning, the CIP adaptor is mounted onto the pressure regulator; it forces open the gas supply valve and pressure relief valve and enables them to be fully cleaned. During the CIP procedure, all functions are blocked. See the schematic drawing of the regulator.

Options

  • CIP adaptor (T-piece and 180°bend)
  • Pressure gauge
  • Protection valve for pressure gauge when CIP pressure exceeds range for pressure gauge
  • Mounting brackets
  • Force opener
  • Mounting bracket on reverse side of valve block
