High-Capacity Direct-Operated Pressure Regulator

Pressure regulators help manage pressure through industrial processes. Direct-operated pressure regulators respond to changes in the pressure downstream and adjust the flow rate to maintain the desired pressure.

Emerson’s Darren Mann shared a quick 2:21 YouTube video with me, Fisher 627BM High-Capacity Direct-Operated Pressure Regulator. The video highlights this addition to the Fisher 627-product family. The balanced trim design enables this pressure regulator to achieve a 1,500psig inlet pressure rating while using a large 9/16” orifice. With a flow rate capability that is five times the traditional 627, the 627BM can displace oversized pilot-operated regulators and parallel runs of direct-operated regulators. This balancing feature saves on startup costs and reduces application complexity.

The 627BM is ideal for gas applications which require the following:

  • High flow-rate applications that would normally require multiple direct-operated or a pilot-operated
  • Class 600 positive shutoff protection
  • Tight accuracy
  • Fast speed of response
  • High shock and vibration resistance
  • Easy in-line maintenance with top entry design, saving time and manpower

Key advantages of the Fisher 627BM include:

  • Increased capacity and lower installation cost – Eliminate the need for a pilot-operated or multiple direct-operated regulators to save cost and simplify startup
  • One orifice for all applications – The balanced trim enables the 627BM to use a 9/16 in. orifice without reducing the inlet pressure rating of 1500 psig
  • Eliminates inlet sensitivity – The balanced trim prevents setpoint drift due to fluctuating inlet pressures
  • Prevents low flow instability – Pilot-operated regulators can experience instability if they are oversized. The direct-operated 627BM has superior rangeability in low flow applications
  • Easy maintenance – Lightweight, top-entry design, making disk and orifice replacement quick and easy
  • Easy field conversions – The 627BM uses many of the same components as the 627M, including the body, which can make field conversions quick and simple
