Understanding pressure regulator performance is critical to successfully designing, installing and operating an effective fluid system. This webinar will focus on the core aspects of pressure regulator performance: lock-up, droop and choked flow. In discussing these topics, we will also cover the operating theory of regulators in order to better understand what drives these key performance characteristics.
- Types of pressure regulators and basic operation
- Balance of forces
- Control, loading and sensing elements dictating regulator behavior
- Choked Flow
- Supply Pressure Effect
- Flow Curves
