-No external power, energy receives the water flowing through the pipe.
-Simplicity In the design, construction and operation.
-Stable and accurate control of the flow.
The pressure reducing valve is activated by the line pressure and regulated by the pilot valve. This includes a diaphragm that controls the opening or closing of the main valve by the pressure downstream, sending more or less pressure to the control chamber of the main valve.
If the downstream pressure drops below the set at the pilot valve opens increasing the previously fixed output pressure in the pilot.
When downstream pressure rises above the set at the pilot valve it tends to reduce the flow of water to decrease the pressure set at the pilot.
The hydraulic pressure reducing valve is used when you need the downstream pressure does not exceed a preset pressure.
