The equipment is operated on a pressure sequence principle with one valve set at the ideal downstream pressure and the other at a slightly lower pressure. When demand is at a maximum both valves operate; when flow is reduced the valve set at the lower pressure
Apr 27 2020 · To reset the regulator valve: Remove the fast fill lever cap and loosen the lock nut. To raise the reduced pressure - slowly turn the adjusting screw clockwise until the system gauge indicates the pressure required. To lower the reduced pressure - turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise.
Designed to withstand even the toughest environments the pressure reducing valve is a hydraulically operated diaphragm actuated control valve that reduces higher upstream pressure to lower constant downstream pressureregardless of the fluctuating demand or the varying upstream force. Essentially the valve maintains a steady state of pressure downstream heedless of flow.
The valve can automatically feed water into a hot water heating boiler whose pressure falls below the set-pressure (12 psi at factory setting) if the water shutoff valve for the boiler has been left "on". The B&G pressure reducing valve shown at left includes a bypass lever shown in
In pressure reducing valves the mechanism that automatically adjusts the downstream pressure typically uses the balance of forces between the steam pressure and an adjustment spring. At present this is a universal concept on almost all manufactured pressure reducing valves.
May 30 2020 · The piston will close the valve if the low-pressure fluid and the spring force is higher than the high-pressure supply. If the low-pressure fluid force is decreased then the new fluid pressure and the spring force are less than the high-pressure supply fluid and the piston opens the valve.
Jan 28 2010 · The part has a manual valve that can be engaged to prevent a backflow but it works on a siphoning process through the air gap that prevents the back up and cross contamination of water running through your plumbing system.

Feb 19 2018 · It's really very simple on the surface. The fluid pressure is reduced by taking a permanent pressure drop across the valve. This is accomplished by a variable flow area inside the valve. The typical set up involves a spring and diaphragm that are connected to a pintle or other device that regulates the flow opening in the valve.
