Rotork Australia has supplied Fairchild Model 10 pressure regulators for research applications demanding highly accurate pressure control at the TRI Australasia facility near to Queensland’s Gold Coast.
TRI Australasia offers highly specialised services including a range of geo-synthetic testing and quality assurance programmes for a multitude of industries. The Fairchild Model 10 regulators have been installed on two processes where compressed air is used to check for the content of water retention within clay. Both processes demand highly accurate set point pressure supplies in order for the tests to maintain reliable results.
Fairchild Model 10 regulators are designed for applications where high performance and reliable set point accuracy are essential. Suitable for system pressures up to 34 bar (500 psi) and flow capacities up to 63 cubic metres/hour (40 SCFM), the Model 10 offers nine set point pressure ranges and is easily able to achieve the +/- 0.5% accuracy required for the TRI application.
Commenting on the Fairchild product, TRI Australasia’s Divisional Director Warren Hornsey said “We chose the Fairchild product due to the accuracy required and the strong name within the industry. It was also important for us to have the support that Rotork Australia can offer from their local Brisbane office.”
