Pressure regulators are widely used in many common consumer and industrial applications. While they sometimes go unnoticed, they are often critical to safety, protecting equipment from damage and personnel from harm. Although the applications vary considerably, all pressure regulators provide the same function. They reduce a supply pressure to a lower outlet pressure, and maintain this outlet pressure regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations.
When choosing a pressure regulator, engineers should consider a number of factors to help select the best product for a job.
