The Basics Of Pressure Regulators

Pressure regulators are found in many common home and industrial applications. For example, pressure regulators are used in gas grills to regulate propane pressure, in home furnaces to regulate natural gas, in medical/dental equipment regulate oxygen and anesthesia gases, in pneumatic automation systems to regulate compressed air, in engines to regulate fuel pressure, and in fuel cells to regulate hydrogen. Although the applications vary considerably, the pressure regulators provide the same function. Pressure regulators reduce a supply pressure to a lower outlet pressure and they maintain this outlet pressure regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations. This reduction in pressure is the key characteristic of pressure regulators; outlet pressure is always at a pressure below the inlet pressure.
