What is the function of this valve as a pressure reducing system?
The pressure reducing or regulating valve is a fluid control valve, whose main purpose is to reduce the system outlet pressure, regardless of variations in inlet pressure or demand in the line.
At Valfonta, we have been manufacturing and designing this type of pressure regulating valve for fluid systems for more than fifty years, and it goes without saying that they are our main specialism. The experience that we have acquired over all these years guarantees the best for each of our clients. We study each installation carefully, as well as any special requirements or requests that you may have, until we find the optimal solution and the most appropriate valve
Types of reducing valves that you can find in the range in our catalogue
- Pressure reducing valve (model M2): well-suited to controlling gases in the temperature range between -10 and +80ºC. It is direct acting, does not require auxiliary energy, and compensated by a diaphragm. It controls the outlet pressure, even if there are fluctuations in the inlet pressure. The valve closes when the downstream pressure increases. It is well-suited to gases (air, nitrogen…), liquids and vapours. It is used in Blanketing installations.
- Piston-operated pressure reducing valve (model PRV 20): self-powered pressure reducing valve that is balanced via a piston used to provide constant, downward pressure, with oscillations in inlet pressure. It is usually used in different applications such as chemical laboratories, sanitary plants, sprinkler systems…
- Self-powered pressure reducing valves (model M1): act thanks to a diaphragm that controls the outlet pressure. It does not require auxiliary energy and is well-suited to working with vapours, although it is also used for compressed air, liquids and non-dangerous gases.
- Self-powered pressure reducing valves (various models): these valves are designed to provide constant pressure, even if there are oscillations in the inlet pressure. They are specially designed to work with gases at low outlet pressure, liquids and gases from groups 1 and 2, as well as with compressed air, steam, nitrogen, fuel, water, neutral gases…
- Direct acting pressure reducing valves (various models): These are easily adjustable valves, they can be installed in any position, and are available with bellows,self-poweredor self-compensating. They are usually used in chemical laboratories, sanitary, industrial or steam installations, for vulcanising presses and cylinders, furnaces…
