Abstract: Pressure is vital to the utilization of gas. It is economically transported at high pressure over long distances to distribution networks operating at reduced pressures and finally brought to near-atmospheric pressure at the point of use. For each stage of reduction, the regulator provides automatic, stable pressures for accurate measurement and low pressure for safe, efficient utilization. We all have a tendency to take regulators for granted. Its only when a problem develops or when we are selecting a regulator for a new application, that we need to look more deeply into the fundamentals of the regulators operation.
