pressure regulator


pressure regulator
A device that reduces the pressure of the fluid from a high value to a lower value and, thereafter, maintains a constant output. The out pressure of the regulator can be adjusted. This is achieved by bypassing a portion of the fluid back to the inlet side of the pump.
The pressure is regulated by sending fluid back through the by-pass when it tends to exceed the pre-set datum.
