With safety being a key driver of the new design, the easy-to-operate SMOOTHFLO™ is one of the safest gas regulators in its class. The break-off inlet stem is designed to ensure that should a cylinder and regulator be accidently impacted by a fall, the high performing excess-flow valve will automatically safely seal off gas discharge from the cylinder into the atmosphere.
Other safety features include a piston-embedded safety valve that eliminates the need for a diaphragm. Piston-driven technology produces excellent pressure stability at higher flow rates, which allows an operator to achieve greater gas cutting speeds. The ability to go from zero to maximum operating pressure in just three turns reduces the amount of set-up time required.
The mirror configuration of the SMOOTHFLO™ regulators prevents hose overlap and reduces the potential risk of oxygen/acetylene fires. The panel mounted gauges are unique to this pressure regulator. As a result of being an integral part of the regulator, this efficient and patented design improves safety and reduces potential pressure gauge damage.
The outer casing of the gas pressure regulator is manufactured from a robust, impact resistant and fire retardant nylon-based material and affords ultimate pressure gauge protection. In addition, the outer casing serves as a tamper-proof feature, since any attempts to tamper with the gauges or regulator components would immediately be evident.
A unique lever-activated encapsulated valve with Dynamic Quadflow Stability Control technology (DQSC) offers a high level of pressure stability and reduces internal forces, for improved life and performance of the regulator.
One of the most exciting features of this new hybrid product is the fact that multi-stage-like performance is achieved from a single-stage regulator. The SMOOTHFLO™ incorporates new technology in the encapsulated valve, harnessing the principle of mechanical advantage, in conjunction with piston technology that replaces the conventional diaphragm.
