Since chamber A has a larger surface area than chamber B, chamber A
overpowers chamber B, the actuator moves, and the linkage opens the
When the downstream sensing port has greater pressure than the
pressure from the reference pressure regulator, the shuttle valve
moves and allows the pressure from the downstream sensing port to
enter chamber B.
When enough pressure has entered chamber B to
overcome the pressure in chamber A, the valve moves toward the closed
Pressure Regulating Valve Schematic.
If the cutoff solenoid fails to energize,
the valve opens when applying air pressure.

The venturi serves as an in-line restrictor
with a 0.570 inch diameter, with one inlet and three
outlets, and a manifold block for air pressure tapoffs
(fig. 1-17). The venturi is designed to limit air flow to
approximately 200 cfm when 35 psig is available.
