Idex - Valves - Back Pressure Regulators

Back Pressure Regulators are designed to enhance system performance through outgassing prevention and improved pump check valve efficiency. It includes 5 and 20psi assemblies (replacement cartridges not available), a variety of pressure rated cartridges and assemblies, PEEK and stainless steel BPR holders, high pressure adjustable BPR for pressure between 2000 and 5000psi and ultra-low volume BPRs set to 100 and 500psi.

Available models

We developed Ultra-Low Volume Back Pressure Regulators (BPRs) to minimize swept volume, which is especially important for multi-detector applications. With a maximum swept volume of only 6 μL*, it is nearly impossible to detect these BPRs as part of your fluid pathway. To minimize the swept volume added to your flow path, we recommend trimming the length of the attached tubing. And because the flow path is completely polymeric, you are assured of biocompatibility.


  • Micro-Volume Low Flow BPR PEEK, Pressure Setting 100 psi/7 bar
  • Micro-Volume Low Flow BPR 500 psi, Pressure Setting 500 psi/34 bar
  • Micro-Volume High Flow BPR, Pressure Setting 100 psi/7 bar

Our Micro-Volume BPR Assembly was developed to specifically minimize swept volume which is extremely important for multi-detector applications. Our BPR Assembly has a maximum swept volume of only 6uL making it nearly impossible to detect as part of your fluidic pathway. It is for a 1/16 tubing OD and has a pressure setting of 100psi/500psi (7 bar/34 bar). It comes with (1) P-230 Flangeless Fitting.

Our BPR Holders work easily with any of our replacement BPR Cartridges. Each holder comes with fittings for 1/16 inches outer diameter tubing. The U-469 Holder is surface-treated to prevent galling, a potential problem with large, threaded metal parts. These Back Pressure Regulator Holders are designed to allow each cartridge to operate at its stated pressure setting when tightened to 20 in–lbs. of torque. To approximate this level of torque, first finger tighten the Holder, then tighten an additional 1/8 –1/4 turn with the supplied wrenches.

Our BPR Cartridges are manufactured from PEEK, Tefzel (ETFE), perfluoroelastomer, and gold-plated stainless steel giving it excellent chemical resistance. Our replacement cartridges will easily operate in any of the standard BPR holders. These cartridges create back pressures from 40 to 1,000 psi (2.8 to 69 bar)—all independent of flow except as noted below.

The recommended operating flow rate range for our BPR Cartridges is 0.1 mL–10 mL/min. Within this range, the amount of back pressure created by the BPR Cartridges and Assemblies will not vary more than ±10%. Lower or higher flow rates may result in larger pressure fluctuations.
