What is a reducer valve?

What is a reducer valve?

The reducing valve is a regulating device which serves to reduce the air pressure supply to the required delivery pressure. A typical example is shown in Fig. 8.3.

What is the benefit of the reducer valve?

Water pressure reducing valves are compact, inexpensive regulators that perform two functions: They automatically reduce the high incoming water pressure from the city mains to provide a lower, more functional pressure for distribution to homes.

Can you use a pressure regulator for vacuum?

Another type of vacuum controller is the vacuum breaker. It lets ambient air into the vacuum system to control the vacuum pressure. It is also called a vacuum relief regulator. These regulators are a type of pressure reducing regulator as the pressure is controlled by using the outlet port.

What is vacuum regulator?

A vacuum regulator is a device used to maintain a desired vacuum pressure in a system. There are multiple types of vacuum regulators, but mechanical vacuum regulators discussed here work on a force balance principle.

What are the dimensions of a vacuum valve?

Pressure rating using Co-Seal 9 bar / 131 psi Ambient operating range 0 to 40 °C Ambient storage range -10 to 40 °C Panel thickness 3 mm / 0.117 in maximum Weight SP10K 230 g / 8.1 oz SP16K 240 g / 8.4 oz SP25K 760 g / 26.6 oz SP40K 2300 g / 80.5 oz Baking temperature 60 °C 476. Vacuum Fittings & Valves Features and Benefits

What kind of valve does Edwards vacuum pump use?

Whatever the application, Edwards has the right solution to meet your process requirements. Well known for its innovation in pump design, Edwards applies the same energy and commitment to its valves. The result is an extensive range of valves, with a choice of actuation methods, materials and size.

How does the valve work on a vacuum pump?

The lever, connected to a self lubricating plastic cam-piston, actuates the valve stem and valve plate through PTFE bearings. The valve plate ‘O’ ring groove is vented to prevent gas bursts.

What should the tolerance of a vacuum valve be?

Dirty System Tolerance Vacuum valves have a differing ability to remain leak tight in “dirty” vacuum systems. If your system generates or contains dust or other particulates, choose a valve with a high tolerance. Size Choose a valve which complements the size of your vacuum pipeline.
