Gas Regulators Feature Easy-to-Read Gauge Design

The Victor EDGE ESS42 enables users to instantly differentiate between the high and low pressure gauges, as well as read pressure settings.

Victor, an ESAB brand, offers the EDGE ESS42, the second generation of its heavy-duty, high-capacity single-stage cylinder regulators. The EDGE ESS42 features a new modular gauge design with an extra large 2-1/2" delivery gauge and an offset, smaller gauge for cylinder pressure. High-contrast, color-coded gauge faces enable users to more easily see and set cylinder pressure.

"ESAB's Voice of Customer feedback program indicated that customers want a bigger gauge that is easier to see and a smaller gauge that is highly protected. Essentially, they wanted a bigger smaller gauge," said John Henderson, Director Product Development, Global Gas Equipment, ESAB. "The EDGE ESS42 accomplishes these seemingly contradictory goals. Users can instantly differentiate between the high and low pressure gauges and, from a distance, determine if they have sufficient gas in the cylinder and have set delivery pressure in the appropriate range."

The EDGE ESS42 offers safety features such as SLAM (Shock Limitation and Absorption Mechanism) technology built into the adjusting knob, permitting the knob to absorb the impact in the event of a cylinder fall. As with the previous version, the compact EDGE ESS42 design positions the gauges and other critical elements of the regulator so that they stay within the profile of many cylinders, enabling the cylinder to help shield the components from impact.

The regulator, designed to pass ASTM G-175 promoted ignition test, also features a high-strength alloy gauge guard and has a high resistance to oxygen related fires. Victor will introduce EDGE ESS42 models for all popular gases in 2017, including oxygen, argon, air, acetylene, LP, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide.
