        2. Back-pressure 
        3. Changeover 
        4. Vaporizer 
        5. Tank blanketing

2. Inlet Pressure Range - Match to maximum supply pressure
3. Pressure Control Range 
        1. Match maximum outlet pressure - Your flow requirements may dictate a higher control range
4. Flow Requirements (Use flow curves) 
5. System Compatibility 
        1. Materials of construction for the body, diaphragm, seat and o-ring
6. System Functionality - Helps in determining venting options and accessories
7. End connections, porting, and mounting
