FLUID POWER:ControlAir Inc.’s new Type-330 Compact Instrument Air Filter Regulator is designed to provide clean, accurate air pressure to instruments, valves and other automatic control equipment in a lightweight, compact housing. The Type 330 is constructed of durable materials that will provide lasting corrosion resistance in harsh industrial environments. It is RoHS compliant and is designed specifically for use in harsh environments. It provides instrument quality air to valves, pneumatic controllers, transmitters, transducers, valve positioners, air cylinders and a wide range of pneumatic control systems. The Type-330 is ideal for petrochemical processing, oil and gas platform applications, both on and offshore; food; pulp and paper; pharmaceutical processing; pollution control; wastewater treatment and research projects. It is available in ¼ inch NPT porting and output ranges include 0-30 psig, 0-60 psig and 0-120 psig. Maximum supply pressure is 250 psig. Standard mounting allows for pipe, bracket or through body direct. Temperature limits range from 0 to 160F (-18 to 71C). Flow capacity is 22 scfm at 100 psig supply with 20 psig output. Exhaust capacity is 0.1 scfm with downstream 5 psig above set point. Air consumption is less than 5 scfh. Effect of Supply Variation is less than 0.2 psig for 25 psig change. The Type-330 Compact Instrument Air Filter Regulator weighs 1.2 lb.
