Редуктор кислородныйОсновное назначение кислородного редуктора является понижение давления технического кислорода с баллонного или сетевого, до рабочего давления и поддержание его на нужном уровне в автоматическом режиме, не зависящее от перепадов давления газа в сети или баллоне. ГОСТ 6668-78 предусматривает выпуск следующих редукторов, работающих в различных климатических условиях:

  • баллонные (Б) БКО, БКД, БПО;
  • сетевые (С) СКО, САО, СПО, СМО;
  • рамповые (Р) РКЗ, РАД, РПД;
  • центральные (Ц) ЦКЗ;
  • универсальные (У) УКН, УВН;

Редукторы подразделяются по ряду признаков:

  1. признак действия (обратного и прямого действия)
  2. пропускной способности
  3. рабочему давлению газа

Редукторы подсоединяют к баллонам или магистрали при помощи накидных гаек. Условное обозначение одного из редукторов имеет следующий вид: редуктор кислородный БКО50 4 ГОСТ 6268-78 – это редуктор, предназначенный для кислородных баллонов, одноступенчатый с механическим заданием рабочего давления, с максимальной пропускной способностью 50 куб.м/час. Редукторы различаются по принципам действия, и могут быть обратного и прямого действия. В кислородных редукторах прямого действия, давление газа стремится открыть регулировочный клапан. В редукторах с обратным принципом действия, давление кислорода до редуцирования стремится его закрыть.

Принцип работы редуктора

Широкое применение получил более надёжный в работе кислородный редуктор обратного действия, как более компактный и простой по конструкции. Редуктор имеет две камеры – одна с высоким давлением кислорода от баллона или магистрали и рабочую камеру с низким давлением. Давление кислорода в камере высокого давления равно давлению кислорода в баллоне, так как камера непосредственно соединена с баллоном. Между камерами имеется клапан, на который, через мембрану, воздействуют две пружины, открытие которого,  зависит от соотношения сжатия этих пружин.

Упругость пружины камеры низкого давления регулируется винтом, соответственно регулируя степень открытости клапана и тем самым изменяя давление во второй камере, с низким давлением. Для перекрытия клапана, необходимо ослабить пружину, то есть выкрутить винт. Камера низкого давления, через газовый вентиль и шланги, соединена с горелкой, а давление газа в горелке равно давлению в рабочей камере с низким давлением. Если, при каком-то положении регулировочного винта, расход кислорода и его поступление равны, то всегда рабочее давление не изменяется.

При расходе кислорода больше его поступления, то давление в рабочей камере низкого давления снизится. При этом нажимная пружина будет давить на диафрагму и деформировать её, что заставит клапан приоткрыться больше и поступление кислорода в рабочую камеру увеличится. При уменьшении расхода кислорода, давление в этой камере увеличится, что вызывает сжатие пружины и деформацию диафрагмы в обратную сторону. Это заставляет клапан перекрывать проходное отверстие и поступление газа уменьшается. Таким образом, обеспечивается автоматическое поддержание давление кислорода на выходе из редуктора.

На кислородном редукторе установлены два манометра: высокого и низкого давления. Манометрия кислорода в баллоне или магистрали отслеживается по манометру высокого давления, а по манометру низкого давления регулируется рабочее давление кислорода, поступающего на горелку.

Работы по проверке и подготовке редуктора к работе

При присоединении редуктора к баллону для начала работ, следует проверить исправность манометров: их стрелки должны находиться на нулевых отметках и не смещаться при повороте редуктора.

Перед присоединением рабочих рукавов от горелки или резака, следует убедиться, вывернут ли полностью рабочий винт для закрытия клапана. Надёжно присоединив рабочие рукава к редуктору, и открыв кислородный вентиль на горелке, необходимо отрегулировать рабочее давление регулировочным винтом на редукторе, основываясь показаниями рабочего манометра.

Для проверки герметичности всех внутренних соединений редуктора, нужно выкрутить регулировочный винт для освобождения рабочей пружины, и закрыть вентиль расхода кислорода на горелке или резаке. На рабочем манометре давление незначительно увеличится, но стрелка его остановится, если отсутствует самотёк кислорода от не герметичности регулировочного клапана.

Самостоятельно подтягивать резьбовые соединения самого кислородного редуктора категорически запрещено, так как он работает под высоким давлением. Для надёжной проверки редуктора на самотёк следует вывернуть регулировочный винт и нанести мыльную пену на отверстие выходного штуцера. Появление пузырей указывает на присутствие самотёка, то есть отсутствие герметичности клапана. Если обнаружится самотёк редуктора, то он сдаётся в ремонт.

Падение рабочего давления от установленного указывает на утечку кислорода из неплотных соединений рукава с редуктором, которые устраняются подтяжкой резьбовых соединений.

При больших объёмах отбора кислорода возникает эффект замерзания редуктора. В этих случаях следует отогревать его только тёплой водой, а не открытым пламенем, которое запрещено.

По окончании работ необходимо закрыть вентиль на баллоне, отсоединить шланги и, выпустив газ из редуктора, снять его с баллона. Потом выкрутить регулировочный винт, ослабив рабочую пружину и положив на хранение в месте, исключающее попадание на него масла, жира и других загрязнений.

К редуктору должен прилагаться паспорт и сертификат соответствия, поэтому только в специализированных организациях необходимо приобретать редуктор кислородный, цена которого зависит от его модификации.

  1. I am really grateful to the holder of this web page who
    has shared this great piece of writing at at this time.

  2. I am not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more
    or understanding more. Thanks for great information I was looking for this
    information for my mission.

  3. g:

    Hello, Neat post. There’s an issue together with your web site in web explorer, may check this?
    IE still is the marketplace chief and a huge section of other folks will omit your wonderful writing due to this problem.

  4. Highly descriptive blog, I liked that a lot. Will there be a part 2?

  5. I simply had to say thanks yet again. I do not know the things I would have made to happen in the absence of those ways contributed by you relating to such a theme. It previously was a real terrifying circumstance in my circumstances, but noticing your specialized fashion you processed the issue forced me to jump with gladness. I’m happy for your information and then believe you comprehend what a powerful job that you’re getting into educating some other people through the use of a web site. I know that you have never come across any of us.

  6. Everyone loves it when people get together and share views.
    Great website, continue the good work!

  7. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  8. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  9. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  10. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  11. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  12. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  16. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  21. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  22. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of «neighbors» will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune «Social» is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  33. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  71. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  72. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  73. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
