regulator and the flow limiting venturi) pneumatically
actuates the valve.

To control the temperature, the system has
the conditioned air temperature sensor placed in the
distribution duct down stream of the condenser tapoff.
This sensor monitors the temperature of the air sent to the
If the tank commander selects a
delivery temperature of 70,F, the sensor sends a signal to
the controller indicating the temperature of the air
delivered and the controller compares this to the selected

The temperature control valve
controls the air flow from the tapoff before the heat
exchanger and allows it to mix with the turbine discharge
