Pressure Reducing Pilot Controls
The Cla-Val Models CRA and CRD Pressure Reducing Control automatically reduce a higher inlet pressure to lower outlet pressure. They are direct-acting, spring-loaded, diaphragm type control regulators that operate hydraulically or pneumatically. These valves are held open by the force of the compression spring above the diaphragm and close when the downstream pressure acting on the underside of the diaphragm exceeds the spring setting. The CRD senses downstream pressure directly and the CRA senses downstream pressure remotely.
These valves are ideal small capacity regulators for applications such as water coolers, fountains, humidifiers, gas refrigerators, and air supply to tools and instruments. Remote pressure sensing is available with the CRA. They also have numerous applications as pilot controls on many Cla-Val Automatic Control Valves.
