If you need more information about pressure regulating valves for water applications or you would like to know more about how an air pressure regulator valve works, you’ve come to the right place. Here, Fluid Controls answers your most frequently asked questions about pressure regulator valves.
Fluid Controls offers various types of pressure regulators for use with liquid and gas applications including:
Pressure regulators are valves that automatically cut off the flow of a gas or liquid when it reaches a set pressure. The main function of a pressure regulator is to match the flow of gas or liquid whilst maintaining a constant output pressure.
The main function of the pressure regulator is to match the flow of liquid or gas through the application. To do this, the pressure regulator must respond to any changes to the flow load. If the flow load increases, then the regulator must also increase its own flow rate. Equally, if the flow load decreases, the pressure regulator must also decrease its flow rate. This ensures that the pressure in the application remains controlled. A pressure regulator works by reducing the supply (or inlet) pressure to the lower outlet. It will then maintain the lower outlet pressure, despite any fluctuations in the inlet pressure.
Air pressure regulators work by passing air from the filtering chamber through the diaphragm and out of the vent. This maintains a balanced pressure across the diaphragm, by moving the range spring which holds down the diaphragm until the output pressure is high enough to lift it.
Air pressure regulators are widely used in pneumatics and are used to control the pressure of instrument air. This is required to power components such as power valve actuators, transmitters, controllers and control valves.
Fluid Controls supplies some of the very best pressure regulating valves for water from Bürkert. These fluid pressure regulating valves work on the principle of reducing pressure. They are made up of a housing, piston or diaphragm valve and an adjustable spring that maintains a constant pressure through the application. Pressure regulating valves for water are ideal for use in drinking water systems and various other industrial applications, such as pharmaceutical, waste water and power industries.
Fluid pressure regulators are used in hydraulic power systems to maintain a safe and efficient pressure level. In hydraulic power systems, fluid pressure regulators unload the fluid pump and regulate the operating pressure.
Electronic air pressure regulators are used to increase or decrease gas pressure to maintain correct pressure. Electronic air pressure regulators use a solenoid valve to maintain the correct pressure for each application. They work by using a push valve and vent valve to maintain the outlet pressure at the desired pressure point. A digital controller adjusts the timing of the solenoid valve to maintain this pressure point.
