Pressure regulators like, commonly called pressure-reducing valves, maintain constant output pressure in compressed-air systems regardless of variations in input pressure or output flow. Regulators are a special class of valve containing integral loading, sensing, actuating, and control components. Available in many configurations, they can be broadly classified as general purpose, special purpose, or precision.
General-purpose or utility regulators have flow and regulation characteristics that meet the requirements of most industrial compressed-air applications. Special-purpose regulators often have a unique configuration or special materials for use with fluids other than compressed air.
