Maintains the downstream pressure in a circuit.


Setting:

Can only reduce system pressure not increase it.

Pilot pressure - Changes in pilot drain or backpressure can effect the pressure setting.


Variations:

Pilot or direct operated

Backflow capability - Some systems require backflow capability in case downstream pressures go up as well as down.

Pilot operated - controls setting remotely.
