Exhibit description

The suction regulator cooperated closely with the gas suction pump. It was tasked with ensuring even gas pressure in the furnaces. Such a device is called the pneumatic regulator. It consists of a cylindrical body, a metal bell and a head. This last element, equipped with a system of levers and counterweights, moved in order to reduce or increase the gas suction force.
