Knowledge is power

  

Swagelok pressure regulators

The great part about a blog is that it can be a conversation among members of the community here in Edmonton. What is your top challenge when it comes to choosing a regulator? Is there a special set of circumstances you'd like us to address? Can you share a tip or two based on your real-world experiences? Please comment.

If you know Edmonton Valve & Fitting, you know our 40+ experts make sure you get the right fluid system components. But wouldn't your team and ours work together even better if you had extra insight into the role that each component plays -- and how to get top performance from it?

That's why we are launching this blog. The goal is to build your knowledge and speed -- helping you get exactly what you need -- even quicker -- as you install a new system or work on optimizing costs and efficiency. Plus, the dialogues here can build your confidence that we will only recommend spending money on things you need, and get full value from every part you install.

Kicking off with regulators

Regulators in particular seem like an excellent way to kick off our new blog. We want to share our expertise with you. Over the coming weeks we’ll offer you some education on regulators, terminology, tips, hints and other resources for maximizing their use.

For example, have you thought much about how a regulator works, and what conditions allow it to perform best? That’s where we will start in the next post. Later on we’ll talk about specific kinds of regulators for specific jobs.

We plan to go into detail on a couple of different Swagelok lines, how the designs and materials make them ideal for various uses. Once we work our way through regulators, we’ll continue with some other fluid system components.

The great part about a blog is that it can be a conversation among members of the community here in Edmonton. Please tell us what’s important to you when it comes to regulators and other components. For example,
