High-Low Piston (Stick) Pilots for Control SystemsWeatherford’s HL-2 high or low pressure pilot is designed to protect equipment and installations against abnormal pressures. It is available in pressure ranges to 15,000 PSI (1034.2 BAR) and can operate as a normally open block-and-bleed high pressure or closed block-and-bleed low pressure device for pneumatic or hydraulic service.

HL-2 pilot bodies and sense heads are available in any combination of the following five materials:

  • 316 SS (standard)
  • Hastelloy
  • Duplex stainless steel
  • Inconel 625
  • Monel 400
Maximum supply pressure 125 PSI (8.5 bar)
Operating temperature -20° to 450°F (-29° to 232°C)
Production test pressure 1.5 x working pressure
Repeatability of set point 1% of set pressure max.
Hysteresis or dead band 10% of full range max.
Material NACE MR-01-75 standards*
