Design and mode of operation

The pressure-reducing station has the following purposes:


Filtering the pressurized air and condensing Reduction of a high inlet pressure to a low outlet pressure Monitoring of the reduces outlet pressure via pressure gauge and safety valve Ventilation of the compressed air tab A.

The pressure-reducing station consists of a housing that contains the following components (fig. 1) : compressed air filter with drain valve (1), pressure control valves (2), safety valve (3), pressure gauge (4), 3/2-way valve, operated electromagnetically (5) and pressure switch (6) with testing tab (7).

Mode of operation
The pressurized air entering at point P (pmax = 30 bar) flows through the compressed air filter (1) and is cleaned from solid impurities. The resulting condensate is collected in the lower part of the housing and may be drained via the drain valve. The cleaned, pressurized air then reaches the pressure control valve (2). Here the reduction from the inlet pressure to a lower outlet pressure (3 bar...8,5 bar) takes place. The outlet pressure set at the pressure control valve is indicated at the pressure gauge (4). The safety valve (3) has to limit the operating pressure in the pressurereducing station to a maximum of 8,5 bar in order to prevent damages to the connected devices. The compressed air continues to flow from the pressure control valve (2) to the electro-magnetically operated 3/2-way valve (5). This valve can supply the tab A with compressed air. In addition to tab A tab P1 also furnishes a constant compressed air supply.

The pressure switch (6) is used for monitoring of the reduced outlet pressure. In case a lower threshold limit of the pressure value has been exceeded, an electrical contact is closed. The compressed air tab 14 can be used to supply compressed air to the testing tab (7) for the pressure switch, thus ensuring that the function of the pressure switch (6) can be continuously monitored during operations. In order to enable this feature, the adjusting screw of the testing tab has to be turned into the housing until it stops.

883 890 035 3 BDL 001 AC (10/06)


Design and mode of operation

If the compressed air supply at tab P is interrupted, the pressurereducing station is vented by force; thus ensuring that no pressure is present at any of the subsequent devices. (cf. block diagram on page 32 and circuit diagram on page 46)


Fig. 2a - 2c show three versions of the pressure reducing station, which basically differ in the arrangement of the pressure switch and the pressure gauge.

Ports and Installation

Ports and Installation

The pressure-reducing station is fixed with 3 screws M10. The boring pattern can be taken from the dimensional drawing. Pneumatic connections are materialised by traded ports M14x1.5.

Assembly position
Assembly position
For assembly purposes it has to be taken into account that the drain valve points downwards.


Warning! When disassembled dirt, humidity or foreign matter must not enter the compressed air ports. For this reason the ports must be closed by means of suitable transportation protecting plugs. The disassembled pressure-reducing station must be protected from environmental influences. Before assembly the transportation protecting plugs must be removed. In addition the device must be visually inspected for damages of any kind.

883 890 035 3 BDL 001 AC (10/06)


Maintenance and care

Maintenance intervals In order to guarantee a safe operation of the pressure-reducing station, all sealing elements must be replaced after 3 years at the latest provided that the required compressed-air quality and the permissible ambient conditions are observed. We recommend to return the pressure reducing station to Bosch Rexroth AG for repairs. For the replacement of sealing elements at own responsibility a spare part kit 335 320 003 2 is available.
The following maintenance and care instructions have to be adhered to:


Drain valve
The filters should be drained daily using the drain valve. In order to do so, the handles of the drain valve should be slightly moved sideways.


Warning! If the valves are under pressure, the condensate is very powerfully ejected. Do not move the handles with your hands but use suitable tools to move the handles sideways.

Cleaning of the filter cartridge

The filter cartridges have to be cleaned regularly according to the state of contamination of the compressed air. For cleaning purposes cleaner's naphtha or dissolvents can be used. Dry the filter cartridge before returning it to its position. Follow fig.3 for the removal and reinsertion of the cartridges.

Danger! Conduct all works on the pressure-reducing station only in an unpressurized state.


Warning! Check the seals at the fastening screw. Ensure that the cartridge is not installed at an angle.

Replacing the filter cartridges

Extremely dirty filter cartridges should be replaced by new ones. The required parts are contained in the spare parts package 335 320 003 2.

Fett Grease

Greasing the sealing elements

The sealing elements of the pressure-reducing station have to be greased lightly using the lubricant contained in the repair set before assembly, except if they are subject to special maintenance and care instructions. Before assembly, all sealing seats, faces etc. have to be cleaned.

Setup and Test

Setup and Tests of the pressure-reducing station

After the dismantling/mounting of the pressure-reducing station, it is required to set up the operating pressure of the pressure control valves again. In order to do so, the grub screw T7 has to be loosened and the cap T8 has to be screwed from the housing with the exception of the last five turns. Set tab P to a pressure of 30 bar. By turning the cap T8 the operating pressure at the pressure control valve can be adjusted, then tighten the grub screw T7.


Warning! Turn cap T8 only in pressureless state. Check the 3/2-way valve for correct performance by working it. Finally the complete pressure-reducing station has to be tested for tightness.

Storage and transportation

During storage and transportation the pressure-reducing station must in principle be protected against mechanical damage and weather influences. Contacts with aggressive media must be avoided. Compressed air ports must be closed in a way to prevent entry of dirt, humidity and foreign matter. The ambient temperature during storage and transportation must neither drop below -35C nor exceed +80C.




Warning! Consider that sealing elements are subjected to ageing also during storage. The storage period must be taken into account for determining the replacement intervals appropriately.

Danger! In principle the provisions for the prevention of accidents must be observed. Above all the device must during transportation be secured against getting out of place resp. falling down.
