Why control pressure with a pressure regulator?

Pressure regulators are extremely important to the safe running of applications that use gases and liquids under pressure. Pressure regulators are valves that work by cutting off the flow of a gas or liquid when it hits a certain pressure. They are found in many common home and industrial applications, and therefore it is important to control pressure with a pressure regulator to maintain a safe environment. How do pressure regulators work? A pressure...

What is the difference between a relieving and a non-relieving regulator?

In this blog, Fluid Controls discusses the difference between relieving and non-relieving pressure regulators and the advantages of both options. The difference between a relieving and non-relieving regulator When the pressure in a system becomes too high, a relieving regulator stops the flow of the pressure and opens a vent, which allows the pressure to escape. The vent stays open until the levels of pressure within the system return back to normal,...
