On

off



Im sure Steve will chime in at some point, but the application can influence how/what/why of the design.

What are you up to?

...if you're interested in actually reducing pressure fluctuation, I don't think you can do a whole lot better, simplicity-wise, than this.

1. A piston to sense pressure.
2. A spring to balance the piston's force at the setpoint pressure.
3. A valve to shut off the air flow if the pressure goes any higher than the setpoint.

But wisecracks (? ) aside, I don't think there can be such a thing as a mechanical pressure regulator that lacks any of those three elements.
