Mastic Regulator offered find application in controlling of downstream pressure for semi-solid or mastic material. For optimum usage support, these need to be installed ahead of extruder/spray gun in a multiple outlet system. The regulator works by providing precise pressure control to spray guns from common header system as well as supports dampening of flow surges in case line valves are opened during pump stroke changeover.
- Typical installation comprises dead-end hookup
- Regulators need to be mounted close to dispense point
- Whip hose & nozzle should be used for providing enough back pressure to stay within adjustable range of regulator
- Majority of restriction provided by nozzle that prevents static head pressure from increasing at time of valve closure
