Pressure Regulator

RB 4000
< High flow accuracy Applications Description
< Easy maintenance Designed for industrial use: The RB 4000 regulator is a direct-acting,
gas supply networks, district stations, spring-loaded regulator with an optional
< Rugged construction for durability
industries, heating plants and for all integrated safety shut-off device. The
< Balanced valve design eliminates installations where accurate pressure balanced compensation system ensures
inlet pressure effect control, easy adjustment and fast response constant outlet pressure when the
times are required, such as for burners, upstream pressure varies
< Low noise
industrial ovens, boilers, etc
< Approved by the major European
gas distribution companies

Safety shut-off valve

The RB 4000 regulator can be fitted with an overpressure or combined under and over-
pressure cut-off valve (OPCO and UPCO/OPCO). Two different SSV types are available -
SSV 8500 and SSV 8600 - which feature:
< Manual bottom control for voluntary intervention
< Manuel reset
< Built-in bypass system

SSV 8600 with: DN 25 / 40 / 50 / 50x80 / 80 /100


SSV 8500 with: DN 25 / 40 / 50 / 80 to be included in & SSV operating range

SSV operating range

The following table gives the flow coefficient values (Kg) for different sizes of the RB 4000
regulator by relative gas density d=0.6, temperature T=288K and absolute pressure p=1.013

Table A

Version DN 25 40 50 50*80 80 100


Standard (without SSV) RB 4010-20-30 290 900 1480 1800 2900 4150
Standard (with SSV) RB 4011-21-31 275 855 1405 1710 2760 3950
RB 4012-22-32
With silencer (without SSV) RB 4010-20-30 260 810 1345 1635 2610 3770
With silencer (with SSV) RB 4011-21-31 250 770 1285 1565 2520 3610
RB 4012-22-32

The maximum flow capacity can be calculated using the following formula:
where:
In critical flow conditions: If (Pe/Pa) > 2 Q = Kg Pe/2
Q = maximum flow capacity (St) m3/h
In non-critical flow conditions: If (Pe/Pa) <= 2 Q = KgvPa(Pe-Pa)
Pe = absolute inlet pressure (bar)
Pa = absolute outlet pressure (bar)

Temperature and density correction Kg = flow coefficient (see Table A)

For a gas with a different absolute temperature (T)


13.15
and relative density (d), multiply the estimated capacity with coefficient K: K=
vd.t
The calculated maximum flow capacity is expected for the appropriately-sized pipe work.
Velocity restrictions may limit the above values of flow rates.
