pressure regulator

[′presh·ər ′reg·yə‚lād·ər]
(engineering)
Open-close device used on the vent of a closed, gas-pressured system to maintain the system pressure within a specified range.

pressure regulator

1. In a fire sprinkler system, a device that limits water pressure, under both flow and no-flow conditions, in those portions of the system where it is probable that the pressure may exceed 175 pounds per square inch (11,400 kPa).

pressure regulator
The pressure is regulated by sending fluid back through the by-pass when it tends to exceed the pre-set datum.
A device that reduces the pressure of the fluid from a high value to a lower value and, thereafter, maintains a constant output. The out pressure of the regulator can be adjusted. This is achieved by bypassing a portion of the fluid back to the inlet side of the pump.
