Model 10 Pressure Reducing Regulator

Operating Principles

The Model 10 Series regulator uses the force balance principle to control the movement of the Valve Assembly that controls the output pressure. When the regulator is adjusted for a specific set point, the downward force of the Positive Bias Spring moves the Diaphragm Assembly downward. The Supply Valve opens and allows air to pass to the Outlet Port. As the set point is reached, the downward force exerted by the Positive Bias Spring is balanced by the force of the downstream pressure that acts on the Diaphragm Assembly. The resultant force moves the Supply Valve upward to reduce the flow of air to the Outlet Port. Outlet pressure is maintained as a result of balance between forces acting on the top and bottom of the Diaphragm Assembly.

The Model 10 is designed for applications that require high capacity and accurate process control. A poppet valve which is balanced by utilizing a rolling diaphragm, insures a constant output pressure even during wide supply pressure variations. Stability of regulated pressure is maintained under varying flow conditions through the use of an aspirator tube which adjusts the air supply in accordance with the flow velocity.
