Swagelok regulators

Course Aims 

To provide registrants with a detailed understanding into the function of Swagelok Pressure Regulators and the significance in their selection to control and withstand pressure. While noting possible performance challenges to improve system productivity, this course aims to give direction on strict inspection, testing, cost-effective maintenance, and a hands-on experience in identifying key components.


No previous experience or training required.

Course Overview

Selecting the correct regulator is a primary consideration when making decisions for your fluid system. In taking this course you will learn the basics of regulators, pressure management and how to select the best suitable regulator for your application to improve efficiency, reduce and resolve common issues.

Once this course is successfully completed, you will own the skills to list general regular components using the correct terminology and identify key design and performance characteristics of a regulator. You will be confident in discussing the various types of regulators including their applications and be able to state vital design considerations when applying regulators in a fluid system.
