Liquid Helium Containers

High Performance
Liquid Helium Dewars
Praxair dewars make handling liquid
helium easier because they have several
features developed and patented
specifically for this special purpose.

Multi-layer insulation to reduce


evaporation losses.

Cooled shields to simplify your


operation thereby reducing costs
and hazards. Escaping helium vapor
is used to cool the system, avoiding
the need for cooling with nitrogen
and the subsequent cost and
hazardous vapors in an enclosed
area.

Light weight for easier lifting


and moving.

B

Rugged, all-welded construction


for increased performance life of
the multi-layer insulation and
shield system.

Large-diameter neck tubes to allow


for better structural integrity and for
larger-sized liquid helium withdrawal
apparatus.

Praxair Grades
Environmental Grades
NTRM NIST Traceable Reference
Materials are certified by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) and accepted by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency (EPA), as
the highest accuracy standards com-
mercially available. These standards
are the regulatory equivalent to NISTs
Standard Reference Materials (SRMs)
and are made up of the same compon-
ents and are within the analytical range
of NIST SRMs.
EPA Protocols Used for the calibration
and audit of Continuous Emission Moni -
tors (CEMs), Praxair EPA Protocols are
NIST traceable and produced in accor-
dance with the latest EPA specifications
found in document-600/R97/121
Rev. 9/97.
Primary Master High accuracy mix-
tures prepared gravimetrically on electronic
high-precision balances. These standards
are analyzed and named against NIST
traceable reference materials.
Certified Master These routine cali-
bration mixtures are prepared by either
gravimetric, volumetric or partial pressure
methods and analyzed against NIST
traceable reference materials.
Dynamic-Blend Master These zero
blend tolerance mixtures are prepared
on an instrument based dynamic blending
system. Batches of cylinders from two
to one hundred can be produced with
the identical concentrations.
Dynamic-Blend Standard These mix-
tures are prepared similarly to the Dynamic
Blend Master. Certification of the mixtures
is based on process accuracy and Praxair
Primary Laboratory Standards (PPLS).
All master gases are analyzed and named
against NIST traceable materials.

Standard Grades
Primary Standard Highly accurate
mixtures prepared gravimetrically on
high-precision electronic balances.
These standards are analyzed against
Praxair Primary Laboratory Standards
(PPLS) and named to a gravimetrically
generated concentration.
Certified Standard These routine
calibration mixtures are prepared by either
gravimetric, volumetric or partial pressure
methods. These standards are analyzed
against Praxair Primary Laboratory
Standards (PPLS).
Non-Certified Mixtures are prepared
by the same methods and the same care
used for Certified Standard Grades.

Behind The Scenes

Safe, Accurate, Consistent, Reliable... Every Time


Sophisticated communication
programs and mixture blending
software (worldwide databases with
international access) provide the very
latest in mixture technology for our
customers.
Component Raw Material
All blending source gases and liquids
are qualified to ensure that they are
appropriate for your application. We
have determined through experience
that certain impurities affect the per-
formance or stability of the final

mixture.

We have developed and used special


proprietary purification techniques for
the removal of critical impurities. Upon
request a complete impurity profile or
specific impurity analyses can be
provided.

Cylinder Preparation
Praxair utilizes a series of computer
controlled heating, vacuum and purge
cycles to prepare both aluminum and
steel cylinders.

For low concentration or highly


reactive components we use our
additional, proprietary cylinder treat-
ment processes. With the application
of these unique cylinder preparation
processes, we are able to produce
accurate part per billion and low part
per million concentration reactive gas
mixtures with guaranteed stabilities.

Blending Systems
Praxair prepares mixtures utilizing
high load, high sensitivity Gravimetric
Balances, Micro Balance Capillary
Injection, Computerized Dynamic
Blending Systems and Volumetric
Manifolds. In every case we use the
method best suited to your application.

All gravimetric balances are calibrated


with NIST traceable weights. All balan-
ces, gauges and process instruments
undergo specified periodic mainte-
nance and calibration.

Mixture Homogenization
Once a particular mixture is prepared,
mechanical rolling, gas turbulence or
molecular agitation is used to ensure
the homogeneity of the final mixture.

Mixtures
Behind The Scenes

Mixture Safety and Quality

Safety and quality considerations


limit the mixtures we can offer
among these are:

Fuel Oxidizer Mixtures


Praxair will complete a safety review
for any mixtures containing flammable
and oxidizing components. Each
mixture is evaluated to ensure the
flammable concentration is well below
the flammable limits. Praxair will de-
termine if the mixture must be made
at reduced pressure. Final mixture
pressures are based on BTU
calculations.

Vapor Pressure Restrictions


Mixtures containing low vapor
pressure components are generally
made at reduced pressures.

Pressure reduction helps prevent


condensation of less volatile
component and ensures mixture
homogeneity. Computer modeling is
used to generate phase envelopes
for mixture evaluation and determi
nation of appropriate pressures.

Where applicable, Praxair will



recommend low-pressure containers
to maximize the volume of contents.
Refer to page B4 for details.

Reactive Gas Mixtures


Mixture stability is assessed to make
sure the requested components do
not react with each other or with the
cylinder. Primary consideration is
given to safety and the potential
by-products created by a chemical

reaction. Integrity of analytical accu-


racy is also evaluated. A feasibility
review is peformed prior to mixture
preparation.

Where applicable, Praxair will provide


aluminum or specially treated cylinders
for low concentration reactive gas
mixtures. See Section B for details on
aluminum (page B3) cylinders.

The stability of certain gas mixtures


can be affected by the length of time
they are stored, as well as the storage
temperature. To ensure the integrity
of gas mixtures, storage time and
temperature for susceptible mixtures
should be monitored.

Mixture Grades and Specifications

Praxair mixtures are grouped into two


basic categories, environmental and
standard. Please refer to the table on
page D1 for complete specifications
of all available grades.
Environmental Grades have been
developed to meet the stringent requirements of specific environmental applications such as EPA Protocols, I&M
(Inspection and Maintenance) emission
standards, and mixtures requiring NIST
Traceability. In all cases, specifications
have been developed to meet industry
standards or, in some cases, to meet
regulatory requirements.
When EPA Protocols are not necessary,
but NIST traceability is desired, Praxairs
master grades provide the highest degree
of accuracy and confidence for your most
demanding applications. These mixtures
are prepared gravimetrically on highprecisions, electronic balances or with
state-of-the-art dynamic blenders.

The accuracy from these methods


generally exceed the accuracy of most
analytical instruments. Praxair produces
three grades within the Master category;
Primary, Certified, and Dynamic-Blend.
The minor component(s) are analyzed and
certified by Praxair and are traceable
to NIST reference material.
For general purposes, Praxairs standard
grades are available as Primary and
Certified. These analyzed standards are
typically used for high volume applications where the blending precision and
accuracy of the Master grade is not
required. Standard grade mixtures are
prepared using gravimetric, volumetric,
or partial pressure methods. As in the
Master grades, the minor component(s)
are analyzed and certified. The economical Non-Certified grade is suitable for
applications that do not require
analytical certification.

If your requirements call for specifications that fall outside of those defined by
Praxairs various grades, a custom standard will include the exact specifications
you need.
If you are uncertain about which grade
to choose, Praxair technical support
staff can provide recommendations
based on specific applications and
requirements. Call your Praxair representative or your nearest customer

Analytical Instrumentation

General

Instrumentation Gases
Obtaining precise, accurate results requires a combination
of sensitive analytical equipment and high purity instrumentation gases. Impurities can contaminate and even
damage instrumentation and compromise analytical work.

Over the years, Praxair has focused extensive resources


on research and development of instrumentation gases.
As analytical equipment and technology become more
advanced and precise, so do our instrumentation gases.
These gases are prepared specifically for use with
analytical equipment.
In addition, our technical support personnel are experienced
with the equipment and its applications, enabling them to give
you the best service possible. At Praxair, we are dedicated to
helping you select the gas product to achieve superior results,
whether in lab analysis or process control.
The instrumentation reference guide on the following pages
will assist you in the appropriate selection of gases and gas
grades for your specific instrument needs. The grade recommendations are based on the analytical range/sensitivity of
your instrument application. The reference guide is categorized into analytical method/detectors:

Gas Chromatography (by detector)

Optical Spectrometry (absorption and emission)

Mass Spectrometry

Others

For specification and ordering information, the following


pages provide pure gas page references as well as a
complete summary of instrument mixtures.

Type of Analysis
Impurity Considerations

Universal Detector
Atmospheric contaminants can oxidize the
detector filament giving rise to negative peaks
and reduced sensitivity.
Organic Compounds
Hydrocarbons in carrier and fuel gases can give rise
to baseline noise and reduced detector sensitivity.
Oxygen and water cause column deterioration and
affect retention time on critical separations.

Halogenated Compounds
Detector response and column life are reduced by
oxygen and water. Hydrocarbons and halocarbons
can produce baseline noise, negative peaks and
plumbing contamination.

Universal Detector
Atmospheric impurities can cause baseline
noise signal polarity and reduced detector
stability and sensitivity.
Sulfur or Phosphorous Compounds
Organics can yield baseline noise and carbon
dioxide can suppress detector response.

Selective Detector Dependent on UV Source


Organics can yield baseline noise and carbon
dioxide can suppress detector response.
All Compounds
Organics can yield baseline noise and carbon
dioxide can suppress detector response.

Universal Detector
Atmospheric impurities can cause baseline
noise signal polarity and reduced detector
stability and sensitivity.

NIST Traceable Reference


Materials (NTRMs)

EPA Protocols

NIST Traceable Reference Materials (NTRM)


Certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and accepted
by the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), as the highest accuracy standards
commercially produced. These standards are
the regulatory equivalent to NISTs Standard
Reference Materials (SRMs) and are made
up of the same components and are within
the same analytical range.

NTRMs are manufactured in a batch by


Praxair, with NIST assigning the component
concentration. The NTRM program was
designed to replace the EPAs Certified
Reference Material (CRM) program. EPA has
stated that it accepts NTRMs in place of
CRMs and allows their use as equivalent to
SRMs for certification of emissions and
production of mixture standards, such as
EPA Protocols.

The NIST Traceable Reference Materials


(NTRM) program, was developed in a
consortium with NIST, EPA, and industry
participation. The program was intended to
increase the availability of NIST traceable
primary gas standards to industry. NTRMs
supplement the supply of existing gaseous
Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) and
can be used wherever SRMs have been
used in the past. These mixtures are similar
in composition to NIST primary and SRM
standards. However, because the concentration of the certified component can be
bracketed by existing primary NIST standards, NTRM component concentrations
can fall above, below or between existing
SRM concentrations. This offers end users
additional calibration reference points for
greater accuracy and lower uncertainty
measurements.

Available mixture components include:


Carbon Dioxide
Carbon Monoxide
Hydrogen Sulfide
Methane
Nitric Oxide
Nitrogen Dioxide
Oxygen
Propane
Sulfur Dioxide
Concentration ranges fall closely above,
below or between existing NIST SRM
concentrations.

EPA Protocol gas mixtures are required


for the monitoring of emissions from
stationary sources and are used for the
calibration and audit (RATA) of Continuous
Emission Monitors (CEMs) as specified
under EPA 600/R-97/121.

Praxair EPA Protocols are NIST traceable


with a 1% accuracy, produced in accordance with the latest EPA specifications.
The benefits to you include:
Certified analytical uncertainty of 1%
whenever possible for reliable analyzer
certification, calibration and audit.

Reminders

Multi-component Protocols are


assigned a certification period based
on the minor component or balance
gas with the shortest certification
period.
Protocol concentrations lower than
those listed will have an initial 6-month
certification period. Upon recertifica-
tion, acceptable cylinders may have
extended certifications.

Some

mixtures may not be available


due to critical mixture limitations and
safety considerations.

Analytical uncertainty for certain mix-


ture components and concentrations
may vary. The actual analytical uncer-
tainty will be specified on the

Certificate of Analysis.

Trace concentrations of other


pollutants in the mixture can be
certified on request.

For CEM zero grade gas products,


refer to Section C for Air (see pages
C2 and E10) and Nitrogen (see pages

Zero Gases

Zero Gases for Environmental Applications


Setting New Standards of Purity
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) regulations 40 CFR Parts 50, 58, 60,
75 and 266, state that the zero grade air
or zero grade nitrogen used for Continuous
Emission Monitoring (CEM) must contain
no detectable concentration of the pollutant of interest. Furthermore, the zero gas
should contain no contaminants that cause
a detectable response to the analyzer or
that suppress or enhance the analyzers
response. If the zero gas is not certified to
be free of critical contaminants, it could be
out of compliance.

The Purity and Reliability You Need


Praxairs CEM Zero Air and CEM Zero
Nitrogen are developed to meet the stringent

Mobile Source Emissions

Mobile Source Emissions Standards


Federal, Provincial and State vehicle emission regulations
require certification of tailpipe emissions to prescribed levels.
These regulations deal with two areas: new engine certification
and in use certification for currently owned and licensed
on-road vehicles.

These engines are used in passenger vehicles, lawn and


garden products, watercraft and recreational equipment.
A wide range of pure gases and calibration standards,
blended to the manufacturers exacting specifications,
are supplied to this market segment.

High pressure precision gas mixtures, in various concentrations,


are supplied to original equipment manufacturers for new engine
certification of internal combustion engines (ICE).

In use testing is traditionally referred to as Inspection


and Maintenance (I/M) testing. I/M automotive calibration
standards are referred to as BAR mixtures, and are
defined by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair.

Metal Fabrication

Laser Systems Overview

Laser Supply Systems


The purchase of laser cutting or welding
equipment represents a substantial
financial commitment by a metal fabricator. To help maximize the return on
investment, special consideration must
be given when selecting the lasing gases (He, N2 and CO2), the assist gases
(N2 and O2) and the supply system.

Essential factors to be considered include


the selection of the gas type (gas purity
and mixture accuracy), supply mode (flow
capacity, delivery pressure requirements,
etc.) and design of the gas regulation and
distribution equipment.
Praxair LaserStar Gases
and Blends
For optimum laser performance Praxairs
LaserStar gases are produced to meet
the stringent requirements of the laser
processing industry. Available as pure
gases or pre-blended mixtures of helium,
nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and occasionally, carbon monoxide, Praxairs LaserStar
gases are used to generate the laser
beam in a wide variety of CO2 lasers.

Carbon dioxide lasers must be protected


from the problems created by moisture,
hydrocarbons, and other contaminants
which can be introduced through the
gas supply system. These impurities
can reduce laser power, create unstable
operating characteristics, damage expensive optics, and cause costly downtime.
With a properly designed delivery system,
the use of LaserStar gases helps assure
optimum laser performance, maximum
operating duty cycle, and minimum
maintenance costs.
Supply Modes
From lasing gases to assist gases,
welding and cutting operations can be
optimized when proper care is exercised
in the design and selection of the gas
supply system. Praxair offers a variety
of supply modes that will help improve
economy and productivity.
High Pressure Cylinders
Bulk Tanks
Bulk Tanks with Cryogenic Booster

Gas Regulation and Distribution


System Design
To further enhance laser equipment
performance, high quality regulation and
distribution equipment systems must be
employed. These specially designed
systems offer a number of advantages:
Help to maintain gas purity and gas
mixture integrity (to the use point)
Contribute to precise pressure and
flow control
Provide uninterrupted gas supply
Improve operational safety and ease
of use
Decrease the frequency for
periodic laser maintenance.

Praxair offers a complete line of gas handling and delivery equipment (manifolds,
regulators, flow control devices, control
panels and accessories), and safety
products. Refer to Section F for complete
specifications and details.

The LaserStar Overnight


service from Praxair provides a
fast, reliable and convenient way
to receive an accurately-filled and
tested cylinder of LaserStar 5.5
laser resonator gas, precisely
produced according to manufacturers specifications.
This service is particularly
important during maintenance/
repair operations, when laser
technicians in the field need a
cylinder of laser resonator gas
to perform tests.

Pure Gases and Mixtures

Key Applications
LCMS High Pressure Nitrogen
This high-flow application typically warants
liquid supply source. Most commonly, customers use high pressure portable liquid containers (see page B7) or microbulk systems
(see pages B8-B9) where available. Praxairs
vast array of containment options allow you
to chose the best possible mode of supply
for each applicaton.
Refer to page C67 for complete specifications for cryogenic liquid nirogen.

Storing Biological Samples


Freezers Whether storing samples in
liquid or vapor phase, low pressure
(22 psig) liquid nitrogen with a boiling
point of -196 C serves as the refrigerant
to help freezers maintain low temperatures.
Portable liquid containers, microbulk or
bulk supply are the three modes of supply
available for delivery of cryogenic nitrogen
to cryobiological equipment.

Membrane systems producing nitrogen


on-site from a compressed air source have
become another popular option for LCMS
users. Praxair can help you select the best
mode of supply based on a number of
factors, including number of instruments,
facility location, and layout.
Refer to page F81 for complete details
and specifications for Praxairs Membrane
Systems.

Refer to pages F92-F118 for our complete


line of cryogenic products.

Refer to the Instrument Reference Guide (see pages E2-E5) for a complete listing of

Extendapak Gases
The use of modified atmospheres to
replace air in food packages is applicable
to many types of food. Controlling food
spoilage is complex and more than one
gas may be appropriate for the same
application. However, specific packaging
conditions and shelf life extension re-
quirements play a role in determining
which one is most suitable for a given
application.
Praxairs Extendapak gases are used
by food processors and packagers to
extend the shelf life of their products.
These gases include pure nitrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen or a mixture of
these products and function to displace
unwanted atmospheric gases when used
in a Modified Atmosphere Packaging
(MAP) process.
MAP represents only one aspect of
what a food processor can use to ensure
that high quality and safe food reaches
the marketplace and, ultimately, the
consumer.

Extendapak Gases

Most importantly, MAP does not eliminate


or reduce the processors responsibility for
food manufacturing practices. In fact, the
opposite is true. MAP is only appropriate
for plants producing the cleanest of products. No gas combination in the package
will ever reverse a foods poor microbial
condition. At its best, MAP will only extend the keeping quality of a food.
Praxair has also developed other gas
technologies for food applications. Please
contact your Praxair representative for

Semiconductor

Process Gases

Silicon-Precursor Gases

Etchant Gases

Silicon-precursor gases such as silane


and dichlorosilane are used in epitaxial
and chemical vapor deposition (CVD)
processes to deposit layers of silicon
or silicon compounds.

Many gases are used in etching process.


Halocarbons are used typically to etch
silicon compounds or for chamber cleaning, whereas the other chlorine or fluorine
compounds are usually required for etching metallic interconnects. The choice of
gas strongly depends on the ability of a
given mixture of gases to selectively etch
one film in the presence of another with
a sufficient degree of profile control. For
CVD chamber cleaning, NF3 has become
the preferred molecule in many tools.

Dopant Gases

E
46

Dopant gases are a source of controllable impurities to modify local electrical


properties of the semiconductor material.
Specifically, a dopant contributes either
an electron deficiency (p dopant) or an
electron (n dopant) to the local structure
of the molecules crystal lattice, which in
turn alters the conductivity of the material.
For silicon, the p and n dopants are found
in Groups III and V, respectively of the
periodic table.
Dopants are available in liquid, solid and
gaseous states. The common gaseous
n dopants are arsine and phosphine,
while the common gaseous p dopant is
diborane. Dopants are used in epitaxial
deposition, diffusion and ion implantation.
A major growth area for arsine and
phosphine use is the fabrication of III-V
devices, using a vapor phase epitaxy
(VPE) or, more frequently, the metal
organic chemical vapor deposition
(MOCVD) method.

Atmospheric/Purge Cylinder Gases


Atmospheric/purge gases in cylinders
are used for purging certain processing
systems and equipment when a semiconductor manufacturer is concerned
about possible back-contamination of
the house purge lines. Argon, helium,
hydrogen and nitrogen are supplied to
semiconductor manufacturers in cylinders,
as well as in discrete deliveries of bulk
liquids. Since these gases represent
cylinder deliveries, they are classified
as semiconductor process gases.
Some processes, such as sputtering,
require only small volumes of gas, making
the single-cylinder usage of argon, for
example, more economical. Sputtering
technology requires the process to be
run under vacuum conditions and argon
ions are accelerated in an electric field.

Praxair manufactures a complete line of


gas handling equipment featuring the
most advanced technologies, including
gas cabinets, panels and controllers.
See page F50-F54
for details.

1-877-PRAXAIR

www.praxair.com/specialtygases

Through physical bombardment, the argon


ions knock molecules off the surface of a
solid target. The ejected material from gas,
is a strong oxidizing agent at temperatures
greater than 300 C.
Mixtures
At Praxairs Kingman Semiconductor
Process Gases Center, process gas
mixtures are blended to the tight tolerances required by the electronics industry.
The blending systems were designed to
reduce cylinder-to-cylinder and batch-tobatch variation. Computer modeling used
in application of the blending systems
helps ensure that contamination control
levels and blending tolerances meet
specifications required by the industry.
Chlorosilicons
Praxair is the largest supplier of semiconductor process grade chlorosilicon
products in North America with bulk
transfilling facilities at Kingman, Ariz.;
and Bethlehem, Pa. Trichlorosilane,
silicon tetrachloride and dichlorosilane
are supplied coast to coast on
Praxair trucks.

Regulator Summary and Reference Guide

Regulator Summary
Critical Purity 4000 Series Regulators

These stainless steel and brass regulators are highly recommended
where purity and contamination requirements are extremely important. They are most often used with Critical Purity Gases (greater than
99.9995% or purity grade 5.5) and Toxic or Flammable gases, where
vent lines are required from the regulator. The 4000 Series regulators
are available for both corrosive and non-corrosive service.
High Purity 3000 Series Regulators These nickel-plated brass/
stainless steel regulators are recommended for applications where
diffusion resistance is an important factor in ensuring purity. They
provide the same features as the 4000 series with the exception of
the relief valve. This series is most often used with high purity gases
(equal to 99.999% or purity grade 5.0). The 3000 Series regulators
are available for both corrosive and non-corrosive service.
High Purity Economical 2000 Series Regulators
These chrome-plated brass regulators have similar features to the
3000 Series with a few specific design characteristics. They are

most often used with high purity gases (less than 99.999% or purity
grade 5.0) when higher flow rates are required and cost is the most
important issue. The 2000 Series regulators are available for noncorrosive service.
Special Purpose Regulators
These regulators incorporate quality features from all of the above
series. They have been designed with special features for specific
applications.
The following Regulator Reference Guide will assist you in the

Regulators

How to Select Praxair Regulators

Most specialty gases are supplied in


cylinders compressed to high pressures.
Pressure regulators reduce these high
pressures to lower pressures that can
be safely used in an operating system.
Proper regulator selection is critical for
both safety and effectiveness of operating systems.
Many variables are involved in selecting the proper pressure regulator. While
certainly not a comprehensive list, the
following provides some of the more important considerations. To further assist
in making proper regulator selections,
refer to Section C Pure Gases or Section
D Mixtures as applicable, of the Praxair
Specialty Gases & Equipment reference
guide for recommendations.
1 Materials Compatibility
Materials used to construct regulators
must be compatible with the gas especially
those materials (wetted parts) in contact with
the gas. We offer a wide variety of regulators
with various materials of construction to help
ensure that the correct regulator is available
for your needs. A materials compatibility
chart is located on pages H1-H3.

F
2

2 Toxicity
Regulators must be designed with vent
connectors to permit the attachment of a
vent line or disposal system as a precaution,
in the unlikely event of a diaphragm failure.
3 Gas Purity
Like all system components, regulators
should be selected to protect the purity of
the service gas. As an example, regulators
with stainless steel diaphragms are recommended for high purity applications because
they are more diffusion-resistant than those
with rubber-type diaphragms. For low
particulate applications, consideration should
be given to selecting regulators with machine
welded VCR connections. Optional helium
leak tests also help to ensure the integrity
of regulators.

1-877-PRAXAIR

4a Line or Cylinder Regulator


Cylinder regulators as their name implies
are connected directly to gas cylinders.
Typically offered in both single and two-stage
designs, cylinder regulators normally have
inlet and delivery pressure gauges.

6 Inlet Pressure Rating


Regulators must be able to safely handle
incoming gas pressure. Here again, a
wide selection is available which includes
regulators that handle inlet pressures up
to 10,000 psig.

Line regulators, on the other hand, are


used directly in piping systems such as
downstream of the manifold or bulk storage
vessel. Because inlet pressure in piping
systems is normally constant, line regulators
are typically single-stage configurations
with delivery pressure gauges only.

7 Helium Leak Integrity


Helium leak integrity is a measure of how well
a regulator prevents gases from leaking into
or out of a regulator body. The measured
quantity is expressed as a flow rate such as
1 x 10-9 scc/sec He (1 billionth of a cc/sec).
In this case, a helium leak integrity rating of
1 x 10-9 would indicate that the regulator
would leak enough gas to fill a cubic centimeter every 33 years. If the rating were
1 x 10-3 the regulator would leak enough gas
to fill a cubic centimeter in just 17 minutes.

4b Single or Dual Stage Design


Single stage regulators reduce pressure in
one step as gas is consumed. Dual stage
regulators are actually two regulators housed in one body. The first regulator (first stage)
is non-adjustable and reduces in-coming
pressure to an intermediate setting (typically
250 to 300 psig). The second stage is adjustable and reduces intermediate pressure to
final desired delivery pressure. Because the
second stage sees only relatively minor inlet
pressure changes from the first stage, dual
stage regulators maintain steady delivery
pressure and do not require periodic adjustment. They are well suited for applications
where constant delivery pressure is essential.
5 Output Pressure Range
Regulators must be able to reduce pressure
to levels compatible with the operating
system and consistent with process needs.
Our extensive line of pressure regulators
provides numerous choices with delivery
pressure ranges available as low as
0-0.5 psig, or as high as 0-6000 psig.

www.praxair.com/specialtygases

Helium is used as the test gas because it is


chemically inert, its easy to detect and its
an extremely small molecule which allows
it to pass through the smallest leak. The
lower the helium leak specification, the better
the regulator will be at preventing leaks into
the atmosphere and minimizing contamination from gases outside the regulator body.
8 Other Considerations
Other criteria for consideration include
operating temperature, flow requirements,
regulatory issues (e.g. medical regulators
manufactured to FDA standards), special
applications, design preferences and cost.
Call your local representative for further
assistance.
Note: Regulators are designed to control
pressure. Generally they are supplied with
gauges that indicate pressure. Regulators
do not measure or control flow unless
equipped with devices (such as metering
valve or flowmeter) specifically designed
for those purposes. Contact your local
sales representative to find out more about
Praxairs new line of flow monitoring and
flow controlling devices.

Gas Handling Equipment


Regulators

In accordance with our philosophy of


flexible design, Praxair has developed
a versatile modular manufacturing
system to accommodate any individual requirement. With all the options
Praxair offers, listing discrete part
numbers for each regulator series
would be impossible. Therefore, we
have created a part number matrix
which allows you to design a regulator
to meet the needs of your application.

How to Order Praxair Regulators

To complete the part number matrix, consult the Regulator Summary and Reference Guide
on page F1. On this page, you will find a description of each series of Praxair regulators with
their recommended application and appropriate gas usage. You may also refer to the Pure
Gases section of the Praxair Specialty Gases & Equipment reference guide for equipment
recommendations that will help you make the proper selection (see Section C). If you are
new to selecting regulators or would like a quick refresher, review steps A through D below.
The quick-find reference guide on page F1 will help you identify the catalog page that contains the regulator information you need. If you require additional assistance, please consult
your local Praxair sales representative or call Praxair customer service at 1-877-PRAXAIR.

Select the desired outlet pressure range from those available in the A column.
The selection of an outlet pressure range automatically specifies the outlet pressure
gauge which appears in the adjacent column. For example, a regulator with a
0-250 psig outlet pressure range will have a 0-400 psig pressure gauge installed.

Choose the inlet pressure gauge from those available in the B column. While the
most common cylinder pressure is between 2200 psig and 2400 psig, several gases
are stored in cylinders at other pressures.

Example
When using the table below to order a
4000 Series 316L stainless steel, single
stage cylinder regulator with an outlet
pressure range of 0-50 psig, a 0-4000 psig
inlet pressure gauge, a diaphragm valve
with a 1/4" tube fitting, psi/kPa pressure
gauges, and a CGA 580 connection for
nitrogen service, the part number would
be PRS40222331-580 (see page F8).

Indicate the outlet assembly desired from those available in the C column.
Since there are a wide variety of tubing and piping systems in use, the matrix
accommodates virtually any style of connection, eliminating the need for adapters
and reducing potential leak paths. Praxair also offers a choice of valve options for
gas flow control.

Select an assembly option from those available in the D column. A bare body
regulator is shipped without peripherals, with all ports open and unplugged.
A standard regulator comes completely assembled with all selected peripherals,
ready for use.

CGA

Specify an inlet connection. On all regulator series, Praxair will provide any CGA,
DIN 477, BS 341, or other standard connection provided it is recognized as safe for
the materials of construction and pressure rating of the regulator. Consult Praxair
for proper selection of the inlet connection. A 000 at the end of the part number
indicates inlet connection (1/4" female NPT).

purity automatic switchover systems are designed to provide
continuous supply of high purity gases to the laboratory, process or instrument. The system automatically changes cylinder
or bank priority from primary to reserve with no fluctuation in line
pressure to provide a continuous, uninterrupted supply of gas
to the process, laboratory or instrument. Each system may be
ordered with internal pressure switches and a power supply/
remote alarm to provide both local and remote indication of
bank status. For use with flammable gases or in hazardous
locations (class 1, division 1, groups A, B, C, or D) optional
intrinsic safety barriers are available. A second option is a
telephone dialer which will signal when a bank is empty.

Critical Purity Switchover


The 5026 (Brass) and 5027 (316 Stainless Steel) Series high
purity automatic switchover systems are designed to provide
continuous supply of high purity gases to the laboratory, process
or instrument. Due to pressure differential considerations, a
line regulator is recommended downstream of the system. The
5026/5027 Series may be ordered with the line regulator installed
at the outlet or the line regulator may be ordered separately for
downstream point of use installation. Typically the 5026/5027
Series are used with one cylinder per side. To connect more than
one cylinder per side, please order manifold headers separately
(see page F49). The standard models come with flexible, all
stainless steel (Monel lined for Oxygen service) pigtails with
armor casing. The CGA connection on each pigtail has a check
valve in the gland to prevent contamination and minimize
purging requirements.

High Flow Automatic Changeover System


for Non-Corrosive and Corrosive Service

High Flow/High Purity Automatic


Changeover System
The 5031B (Brass) and 5031S (316 Stainless Steel) Series high flow/
high purity automatic changeover systems are designed to provide
continuous supply of high purity gases to the laboratory, process or
instrument. The Series 5031 incorporates two regulators set at different
delivery pressures. Down stream line regulators are recommended to
help eliminate supply pressure effects.
Basic Functional Description
When primary supply to the changeover (primary) is consumed, the
secondary supply (reserve) feeds the downstream process. By turning
the regulator handknob clockwise, the primary supply can then be
replenished. When the reserve is depleted the primary will then begin
to feed the process. With a counter clockwise turn of the changeover
regulator handknob, the reserve side can than be replenished.
Typically the 5031B/5031S Series are used with one cylinder per side.
To connect more than one cylinder per side, please order manifold
headers separately (see page F49). The standard models come with
flexible, all stainless steel (Monel lined for oxygen service) pigtails with
armor casing. The CGA connection on each pigtail has a check valve in

Changeover System

ProStar Platinum Series 8000 Automatic Dewar


and High Pressure Cylinder Changeover System
The Series 8000 Automatic Changeover System is designed to provide
an uninterrupted flow of gas from two sources. When one source is in
service providing the gas to process; the other source is on standby,
and comes on-line when the current source has depleted. The changeover to the standby source occurs automatically. Once the changeover
has occurred, a gas technician replaces the depleted source, turns the
changeover regulator hand knob to the next standby source.
The Series 8000 system includes a line regulator to allow adjustment of
the final delivery pressure to the process. Also included are 6' stainless
steel armor-jacketed flexible pigtails, with CGA check valves, cylinder
isolation and vent valves. This configuration gives the operator the
capability to isolate a source from the changeover panel, allowing
replacement of the source without having to shut down the system.

Automatic Dewar Changeover System
The Series 9000 Automatic Dewar Changeover System is designed
to provide an uninterrupted flow of gas from two sources. When one
source is in service providing the gas to process; the other source is
on standby, and comes on-line when the current source has depleted.
The changeover to the standby source occurs automatically. Once
the changeover has occurred, a gas technician replaces the depleted
source, turns the changeover regulator hand knob to the next standby
source. The Series 9000 system employs a unique Tri-Block design,
which incorporates dual back pressure regulators and a line regulator.
This Tri-Block assembly functions as an economizer circuit, to prevent
venting of the reserve source.
The Series 9000 system includes a line regulator to allow adjustment of
the final delivery pressure to the process. Also included are 6' stainless
steel armor-jacketed flexible pigtails, with CGA check valves, cylinder
isolation and vent valves. This configuration gives the operator the

Gas Handling Equipment


Flow Meters

Overview

A variable area flowmeter (Figure 1) is a device used for measuring the


flow of gases or gas mixtures. Typically, it consists of a glass metering
tube (1A) which is internally tapered such that the inside diameter at
the bottom of the tube is smaller than at the top. A float or floats (1B)
placed inside the tube is/are contained by float stops (1C) inserted
into the inlet and outlet of the tube. The metering tube assembly (1),
consisting of the glass metering tube, float(s), float stops and tube seat
packing (1D), is fitted between the inlet end block (5) and outlet end
block (6) and sealed by the tube seat packing. The flowmeter is held
together by a window shield (13), a back shield (14) and side plates
(15). Once assembled, the metering tube is tightened against the tube
seat packing via the seal spindle (2) to ensure leak-free operation.
Flowmeters may also be equipped with a metering valve (12) which
adds the capability of controlling flow rate.
As gas enters the flowmeter tube, the float is lifted from the zero
position at the bottom of the tube. The float (Figure 2) rises to a point
where the area surrounding the float is sufficient to allow unrestricted
flow of gas. The greater the flow of gas, the higher the float will rise.
By knowing the variables involved (service gas, pressure, temperature,
weight of float, tube diameter, etc.), the height of the float can
be directly correlated to the flow of gas with relatively good accuracy.
Generally, the tube is inscribed with a scale allowing the user to read
the float position. The scale may be direct reading in flow units such as
standard liters per minute (slpm) or standard cubic feet per hour (scfh).
It may also be in a linear measurement such as millimeters (mm) which
would require a calibration chart for cross referencing
the linear measurement to a corresponding flowrate.

F
60

The accuracy of a variable area flowmeter is contingent on both its


operating pressure and temperature. Gases at higher pressures
will be compressed, and therefore a greater volume of gas will pass
through the same given area. Similarly, gases at higher temperatures
will be less dense, and less gas will pass through a given area.

Therefore, all variable area flowmeters are calibrated at specific
temperature and pressure conditions generally at normal
temperature (70 oF) and pressure (14.7 psia).
In selecting a flowmeter, the following items should be taken
into consideration:
1. Materials Compatibility: As with all gas handling equipment,
care must be taken to ensure that the materials used to construct the
flow-meter are compatible with the service gas. Each of the flowmeters
shown in this catalog is provided with a list of its materials of construction.
2. Pressure and Temperature Ratings: The flowmeter must be
capable of handling pressures and temperatures required by the
particular application. Maximum operating pressures and temperatures
are provided for each flowmeter under Specifications.
3. Measuring Range: Flowmeters have specific measuring ranges associated with them. These ranges will vary depending on the flowmeter
model as well as the tube and float combination selected. Obviously,
the specific flowmeter chosen must be capable of measuring in the
flow range required by the process. In general, for the best accuracy, it
is suggested that the flometer be sized for operation in the upper part
of its range.
4. Accuracy: The flowmeter should be accurate to the degree required by the application. Accuracy specifications are listed for each
of our flowmeters. Generally, this will be 5% or 10% of full scale.
Full scale accuracy means that the accuracy specification is based
on the flowmeters maximum capacity. For example, a meter with
a measuring range of 1-10 slpm and an accuracy specification of
10% will have an actual accuracy of 1 slpm across its entire
range that is, 10% of the maximum capacity of 10 slpm.
5. Repeatability: In many gas processes, the ability to duplicate
flow measurements over time is more important than the absolute
accuracy of the readings. The repeatability specification shown for
each flowmeter refers to the degree to which a meter will repeat a
previous flow reading. In general, variable area flowmeters have very
good repeatability, many as high as 0.25% of full scale.

150 MM, Variable Area Flowmeters (Series 150)


Series 150 flowmeters offer an accurate yet economical means
of measuring gas or liquid flow at low pressures and over a wide
range of flow rates. Suitable for both plant and laboratory use,
they are widely used in gas chromatography, atomic absorption
spectroscopy and process control.
Standard Features
Two (2) floats per tube expand range of flowmeter.
Interchangeability of control valve and metering tube assemblies
without disconnecting from the process piping.
Rib-guided metering tube for maximum float stability and accuracy.
Ceramic scales, with contrasting background for easy
viewing, fired on metering tube.
Ten-to-one (10:1) rangeability.

150 mm, Variable


Area Flowmeter

Metering tubes sealed by compression.


Metering tube assemblies contain float stops to prevent float loss
during tube assembly removal.
Available with or without a control valve.

Calibration

Sapphire, carboloy or tantalum floats allow range of flowmeter to


be changed without replacing the tube.
Baseplate with leveling screws permits bench use.
High resolution control valve for precise flow control.

Standard (+ 5% accuracy) calibraction is performed using Air at


normal temperature (70 F) and pressure (14.7 psia). Calibrations
for gases other than air are mathemactically derived from the air
calibration. Calibration charts for air are shipped with each flowmeter
or replacement tube. Calib ration charts for many other gases and
gas mixtures are available at no additional charge. Specify the required
calibration charts when ordering. The accuracy od this calibration is
+5% of full scale. All charts are supplied in metric flow metric flow
increments (i.e. sccm or slpm) unless otherwise specified.

Mass Flowmeters/Controllers/Blending

Mass Flow Measuring, Controlling and Blending Systems


Using state-of-the-art measuring and microprocessor technologies, Praxair has assembled
a series of systems which can measure the mass flow rate of gas streams; measure and
control mass flow rate; or perform gas blending operations all with extremely high accuracy.
These systems consist of an Operator Console that is electronically coupled to one or more
Mass Flow Sensors and/or Mass Flow Control Modules.
Mass Flow Sensors
Mass Flow Sensors measure gas flow with
a (+/-1% full scale accuracy, 1.5% full scale
accuracy above 500 slpm). Since they do
not control gas flow, Mass Flow Sensors
are only used in applications requiring flow
measurement. Capable of working with any
of our Operator Consoles, Mass Flow Sensors are available for measuring flow rates
in ranges as low as 0.1-5 sccm to ranges
as high as 20-1000 slpm. For complete
specifications on flow sensors, see pages
F69 and F70.
Mass Flow Control Modules

F
68

Mass Flow Control Modules measure flow


using the same principles as our Mass Flow
Sensors. However, they also feature an
integral electromagnetic control valve that
gives them the ability to control gas flow with
a (+/- 1% full scale accuracy, 1.5% full scale
accuracy above 500 slpm). Based on this
control capability, they can also be used to
perform gas blending operations.
Available in two different models, all Mass
Flow Control Modules are capable of working with either our CM2 or CM4 Operator
Consoles.
1. Model FRC, Fast Response Control
Modules, are offered in ranges from
0.1-5 sccm through 20-1000 slpm.
2. Model HPC, High Pressure Control
Modules, can operate at inlet pressures
as high as 3000 psig. They are available
for flow ranges from 2-100 sccm up to
0.4-20 slpm.
For complete specifications on Control
Modules, see pages F71.
Operator Consoles
Praxair Instrument Interface Modules
Models CM2 and CM4 are designed for use
with all Praxair Instrument Series 100 and
200 Mass Flowmeters (MFMs) and Mass
Flow Controllers (MFCs).

1-877-PRAXAIR

Model CM2 employs two channels which


accept flow signal inputs and provides setpoint control for each channel. Model CM4
includes four input channels and likewise has
a setpoint control for each channel. Process
flow rates for all channels are displayed on
a large, bright, red digital panel meter as a
percentage of full scale (F.S.). The range of
this meter is from 000.0 to 102.4 percent.
Setpoints for any channel may also be
displayed on the panel meter in the same
percentage of full scale flow units. Setpoints
are adjustable to any value in the previously
stated range using the 10-turn adjustment
controls.
Control action occurs when the process flow
value in a given channel matches its respective setpoint. Both instruments also feature
Automatic Proportional Tracking (APT) Mode
operation. APT operation permits setting the
flow rate control in one or more channels to
be a fixed ratio of the flow rate control in a
reference channel, regardless of the process
flow rate in that reference channel.
Interconnecting Cables
Interconnecting cables are used in all systems for coupling the Flow Sensors and
Control Modules to the operator console.
One cable is provided with each Sensor or
Control Module purchased. With these 10
foot cables, the Operator Console can be
remotely located away from the sensors
and control modules. This enhances the
operators safety especially when working
with toxic or otherwise hazardous gases.
Materials of Construction
All wetted parts of these systems (parts in
contact with the gas) are of stainless steel
construction with Viton used as a sealing
material. Other seal materials (Buna-N,
EPDM, Neoprene or Kalrez) are available
on special order, allowing these systems to
be used in nearly any gas service.

Selecting Mass Flow Measuring


and Control Systems
1. Review the Operator Console features
on page F71 and select the console that
meets your requirements.
2. Review the specifications on page F73
and determine the type of flow control
or sensing devices required for your
operation. Then select the appropriate
model number. Note: As previously
discussed, Mass Flow Control Modules
are used where both measurement and
control are desired, or for gas blending
applications. Mass Flow Sensors are
used in applications requiring flow

measurement only.
3. Review the applicable selection guide on
page F73 and choose the flow range(s)
required for your operation.
Selecting Gas Blending Systems
1. Review the Operator Console features
on page F71 and select the console for
your needs. As shown in Table 1, the
choices for blending applications are
limited to models CM2 and CM4.
2. Select the appropriate range for each
Mass Flow Control Module. This can be
done by determining the total mixture
flow required and multiplying this by the
percentage composition that each com-
ponent represents in the mixture. Then
compare this to the flow ranges available
on page F73.
3. Review the specifications on page F73
and select the model number of the
desired control module.
Note: In blending systems, the outlets of
flow control modules must be manifolded
together to create the blend. Therefore
to prevent the possibility of back-flow
from one module to another, it is strongly
recommended that you select proper check
valves and install them at the outlet of each
module. See page F123 for check valves.
