The vacuum control regulator controls and stabilizes pressure through inlet and outlet ports that allow pressurized air to enter or exit the system as needed. Vacuum breakers and controllers work on a similar principle. But in case the controller does not let air into the production process. The vacuum switch will work depending on use. This could mean spending more energy to clear the air passages and adjust the system pressure.
Type of Vacuum Regulator:
Vacuum pressure regulators and vacuum breakers are used to maintain pressure within the system. But each uses different mechanical principles to achieve this goal. A digital vacuum regulator is built to control the pressure through the inlet port. while the vacuum control regulator or vacuum switch controls the pressure through the outlet port.
The vacuum pump mechanical controller uses the force balance principle. Internal pressure can be relieved by opening the inlet ports and allowing air to build up system pressure. Close inlet ports to reduce system pressure and increase vacuum levels.
A spring-loaded diaphragm is placed between the process vacuum and the inlet port. This causes the diaphragm to expand and contract compared to the spring. The spring is tightened to ensure that the movement of the diaphragm automatically releases or restricts gas flow as needed to maintain proper pressure within the system.
Vacuum breakers or vacuum control regulator also use a spring-loaded diaphragm mechanism. But the pressure is controlled through the outlet port instead of the inlet port. The vacuum switch adjusts the pressure in the system by opening the outlet ports to increase the operating pressure and reduce the vacuum level.
The spring-loaded diaphragm works in the same way as the precision vacuum regulator. When the pressure in the system decreases and the vacuum increases, the diaphragm mechanism applies pressure to the vacuum control valve through a piston. Open the valve and let more air into the system. When the system pressure increases the diaphragm will release air. Release the pressure on the piston and close the valve to bring the system pressure back down.
What Does the Vacuum Regulator Do?
The vacuum control regulator controls the pressure within the system more efficiently than conventional individual valve seats. Spring-loaded diaphragm mechanism controls airflow from the pump or ambient air source for better internal pressure control. Adjustable vacuum controller ensures the operator is operating at the correct pressure at all times. without frequent manual intervention
Vacuum controllers are very useful in a wide variety of applications and industries. Typical applications for vacuum flow regulator include:
- airflow control
- pressure stabilization
- pump control
- Optimization of the flow of industrial fluids
- altitude simulation
- food packaging
- Reservoir regulation
- fuel cell efficiency
- current meter
- medical and dental equipment
- milking machine
- air conditioning equipment
- Analytical and laboratory instruments
Vacuum regulator control gas and liquid flow for any application without the need for manual flow control. This greatly reduces energy and labor costs. and increase overall system efficiency
