Our Range of Regulators
Why do we put a regulator in an air system?
Compressors cut in at a pressure and cut out at a higher pressure. If you supply the compressed air, straight from the compressor, to the pneumatic operated machine, the pressure will be too high, vary, and influence the operation of the machine and work. The regulator will reduce the pressure and keep the pressure constant.
If the incoming pressure is lower than the set pressure on the regulator, the downstream pressure after the regulator will also drop.
Regulators cannot increase the incoming pressure. The filter delivers the compressed air in a saturated condition.
Always filter the compressed air just before the regulator. Never filter after a regulator.
If the regulator reduces the saturated air from the filter, to a lower pressure, the air will be dry at that lower pressure and temperature.
This will result in the Dew-point being lower at this compressed air temperature and reduced line pressure.
Always reduce the compressed air pressure as close as possible to your point of use.
This will give the compressed air time to cool down in the air line and your filter will be more efficient.
Need a Compressor Regulator?
Airpower stock the standard inline regulators as well as precision regulators. Compressors cut in at a pressure and cut out at a pressure. If you supply the compressed air, straight from the compressor, to the pneumatic operated machine, the pressure will be too high, vary, and influence the operation of the machine and work. The regulator will reduce the pressure and keep it constant.
Refrigerated air dryers from 750 liters/min up to 17000 liter/min ex-stock. Larger ex overseas. Dew point 4°C under pressure. Automatic drain pre and manual drain after filters.
Screw compressors have no valves or other mechanical forces to cause imbalances unlike piston compressors.
Airpower keeps universal spare parts for compressors. Pressure switches, non return valves and safety valves are universal to all compressors. Bottom entry filters/ regulators, electric motors and starters can be used for many makes of compressors.
