C-BPV Back Pressure/Relief Regulator

The Model C-BPV* is a 316L SST self-contained back pressure/relief regulator designed for liquid or gaseous fluids utilized in sanitary biotechnological process piping systems. The unit is capable of controlling inlet pressure to set point levels between 2-125 psig (.14-8.6 Barg).

Features:

Lock-open lever feature on the spring chamber area allows the regulator to be cleaned with 50 psig (3.45 Barg) cleaning solution. The combination of materials allows for steam-in-place up to 20 psig (1.38 Barg) of saturated steam. Angle style body with side inlet and bottom outlet. Unit can be easily and quickly disassembled in-line for inspection and manual cleaning. Interior of body mechanically polished and electro-polished per ASME BPE 2012 SF4. Exterior surfaces are electro-polished. All metallic wetted parts of 316L SST. All diaphragms and some plug/stem selections are of non-metallic materials. Unit is cleaned to Cash co Spec. #S-1576. Selection of the metallic plug/stem constructions meets 3A Sanitary Standards, Authorization No. 782. The pressure set point is adjusted with a hex adjusting nut as illustrated or with, opt – 4 Tee Handle.

Used in pharmaceutical industry in production of many health care products for both human and animal consumption. Widely applied for processed food production — confectionary, beverages, nutritional supplements and artificial sweeteners. May also be used in cosmetics production and specialty chemicals. Would be found supporting fermenters, batching tanks, cookers, dryers and other similar equipment.
