MATHESON proudly offers a broad line of gas pressure regulators, including brass regulators, stainless steel regulators, and monel regulators, in single stage and dual stage regulator designs, and suitable for a wide range of applications including industrial gas regulators, specialty gas regulators, corrosion resistant regulators, and gas regulators for semiconductor fabrication applications.
We can help you choose the right gas pressure regulator for your application.
Whether your requirement is as simple as pressure control of house air for dusting, or as demanding as ultra-high purity gas control in semiconductor or trace analysis applications, MATHESON has the regulator you need and the expertise to help you get the most out of it.
In fact, we have over 50 different pressure regulator models, embracing:
- design (single or dual stage)
- materials (brass, stainless steel, corrosion-resistant alloys, zinc)
- pressure (low pressure, standard high pressure, very high pressure)
- flow (normal, high flow)
- specialized (miniature, pre-set, heated, others)
Pressure regulator selection guidelines, specifications, and ordering information can be found on our Online Store. Store does not require pre-registration and accepts major credit cards.

Single Stage Regulators versus Dual Stage Regulators
Single Stage Regulators, if left unadjusted, inherently exhibit an increase in output pressure as the cylinder pressure declines. If your gas usage is on for short periods, and/or periodic pressure re-adjustment is practical, then a single stage regulator is a useful choice.
Dual Stage Regulators will maintain a more constant outlet pressure even as the pressure in the cylinder declines. So, if your application is one where gas flow is on for long periods, and pressure changes are not desirable then you should choose a dual stage regulator.
Single Stage regulators are also ideal for point of use installations on site-wide gas distribution systems. Site-wide systems (or building-wide systems) typically provide pressure control at the gas source, thus constituting the first stage of a dual stage regulator. Downstream, at the point of use, such as a lab bench, a single stage regulator constitutes the second stage. This is why line regulators invariably are single stage devices.
Cross Purge Assembly
What is the function of a Cross Purge Assembly?
Used during cylinder changeovers, a cross purge assembly serves two purposes:
- Purity – helps to prevent contamination of the gas stream hardware components by blocking the entry of ambient impurities
- Safety – enables safe venting of toxic gases that would otherwise be released during changeover
