Description[edit]

Pressure Regulators are useful components in Atmospherics systems, designed to manage gas flow and pressure.

This kit can create four devices: the Pressure Regulator, Back Pressure Regulator, Pressurant Valve, and Purge Valve. Use left-click while in active hands to place. Scroll to switch between variants.

Description[edit]

Controlling the flow of gas between two pipe networks, pressure regulators shift gas until a set pressure on the outlet side is achieved, or the gas supply is exhausted. The back pressure regulator, by contrast, will only operate when pressure on the intake side exceeds the set value. With a max pressure of over 20,000kPa, it requires power to operate.
- Stationpedia


The standard Pressure Regulator will pass through gases, in one direction, while the pressure on its output side is below the set value. It combines several functions:

  • Passive check valve: Gas is never allowed to pass "the wrong way", from output to input, even if the Regulator is switched off or unpowered. (It does not allow gas to pass at all when switched off or unpowered)
  • Switched valve: Gas will not pass at all if the Regulator is switched off or unpowered. This is a similar function to the Pipe Digital Valve.
  • Regulator: Gas will only pass when the pressure at the output is below the Regulator's setting.
  • Compressor: While active, the Regulator will move all available gas from input to output, up to the set pressure. (Contrast with, for example, a Pipe Valve which simply equalizes pressure and then stops.)

The maximum pressure that can be set is 60795 kPa.

To calculate the moles per tick, use the following equation: n = (P * V) / (R * T)

Where:

  • P = Min(Input pressure, 101.325)
  • V = (OutputPipeVolume / InputPipeVolume) * 100
  • n = Moles per tick
  • R = Gas constant (8.3144)
  • T = Input temperature

Description[edit]

Unlike the Pressure Regulator, which closes when the input exceeds a given pressure, the back pressure regulator opens when input pressure reaches a given value.
- Stationpedia

The Back Pressure Regulator will only pass through gases when the pressure on its intake side exceeds the set value. In other words, the standard Regulator defaults open and closes when the output is overpressured, while the Back Pressure Regulator defaults closed and opens when the input is overpressured.

Like the standard Regulator, the Back Pressure Regulator also acts as a check valve, switched valve, and compressor (i.e., input gas will move even if the output is already a higher pressure).

The maximum pressure that can be set is 60795 kPa.

Its low flow rate makes it not suitable for being used as an emergency dump valve.

To calculate the moles per tick, use the following equation: n = (P * V) / (R * T)

Where:

  • P = Min(Input pressure, 101.325)
  • V = 100
  • n = Moles per tick
  • R = Gas constant (8.3144)
  • T = Input temperature
