How Do Gas Regulators Work?
Gas pressure regulators are comprised of three key components that work together to provide accurate pressure control.
- Loading Mechanism: A pressure regulator’s loading mechanism determines its delivery pressure. As the adjustment knob is tightened or loosened, an interior spring compresses or expands, and communicates with sensing technology to modify outlet pressure through the control element.
- Sensing Element: The sensing element senses changes in the pressure on the spring in the process described above. Pressure regulators utilize elastomer or metal diaphragms (varies by model) to communicate these changes to the control element.
- Control Element: This valve is the mechanism that actually modifies the gas regulator’s inlet/outlet pressure. As the loading mechanism displaces the sensing element, it pushes on or retreats from the control element, causing the control element to move in the regulator seat. This expands or contracts the opening to regulate pressure.
Common Applications for Gas Regulators
Thanks to innovative technology and durable construction, pressure regulators find use in a limitless variety of industries and applications.
