Among some of the most versatile parts across several industries, regulators are essential to the overall control and function of gases, fluids, light, electricity, and other elements that are essential to the manufacturing and operation processes of a number of items. With a wide range of makes, models, and functions available on the market, it is imperative to understand your needs before seeking out a regulator.

Defining Regulators

Simply put, regulators are mechanisms that control and maintain the flow or pressure of fuel, steam, various gases and liquids, and temperature on a given machine. Engines are fed fuel via a regulator in order to maintain the desired speed, while tanks containing different types of liquids and gasses are easily measured and maintained via the regulator and gauge readings.

Everyday Uses

Anyone who interacts with some sort of machinery has likely relied on a regulator to ensure proper functions. Any device that dispenses oxygen, including SCUBA tanks, gas masks, or medical tanks, rely on regulators to not only maintain the speed at which oxygen is dispensed to the user, but also to easily read the levels inside the tanks themselves. Cars utilize gas and brake pedals to regulate the flow of gas to the engine, allowing the user to control their speed. Other uses of arrow regulators may include the flow of voltage to train engines via tracks, or the amount of CO2 flowing into a beer tap.
