Regulator Basics


Regulator Basics

The aim of our Safety Training Seminars (STS) is to raise the knowledge level of anyone who handles our products. Experience shows that this leads to a significant reduction in the most common operating errors and fluid system leakage, thereby preventing downtime and accidents, and reducing the related costs.

STS Tube Fittings, STS Valves, and Regulator Basics cover topics such as leakage, tubing, tube connections, assembly procedures, advice on tube routing, tube bending, threads, valves, regulator basics, and Swagelok's article numbering system. Participants are very active during these courses as they are composed of both theory and practice.

Regulator Basics is delivered in two parts

  • Part 1: Understanding basic regulator functions, structure and the phenomena that affect a regulator's performance.
  • Part 2: An in-depth look at the properties of different regulators and how they can be used in different types of systems.
