Bronkhorst is an experienced European supplier of mass flow controllers. The technology to control mass flow can also be used for pressure control. In 2016, PCS and Bronkhorst co-developed a high-pressure electronic pilot controller to set the reference pressure on an Equilibar dome-loaded back pressure regulator up to 200 bar. This resulted in a multi-channel PID controller and calibrated pressure sensor being fitted in a housing containing two proportional valves specially designed for high pressure.

In 2018, the 2.0 version of this extension of Bronkhorst’s El-Press series – the PPC – was launched on the Achema conference in Germany. Since that launch, we have applied the regulators frequently. Both to pilot the Equilibar dome-loaded back pressure regulator as well as a stand-alone dead volume pressure controller.

The instrument communicates both analog ((0)4…20 mA or 0..5(10Vdc)) and digital (RS-232) and can be fitted with bus communication like EtherCAT, ProfiNet, Profibus, Modbus, DeviceNet, FlowBus.

ILS is very pleased with the performance of the PPC dual valve electronic pressure controllers. We have even taken the initiative to revamp a number of older ILS reactor systems, including a large parallel hydrotreater for 2-phase backpressure control and a syngas-to-alcohol unit for high-temperature pressure control, with these new PCS products. The dome-pressure control is superior to the performance of former solutions from other suppliers or systems we made in-house using fast-acting dual on/off solenoids. The Bronkhorst PPC in combination with the Equilibar BPR supplied by PCS offer superior pressure control with minimal dome-gas consumption for our clients.”
