The performance of dowty retarder is mainly determined by its internal pressure valve. Through the understanding of the functional principle of the dowty retarder, we know that there are many important technical parameters of the dowty retarder, such as critical speed, opening pressure, vertical true reaction force, braking power, etc., which are related to the structure and dynamic and static performance of the pressure valve.

For example, the critical speed and the opening pressure depend on the spring adjustment of the pressure valve. In addition, the vertical reaction force of dowty retarder is a very important parameter. In the process of dowty retarder working, due to the reasons of installation and action mode, there is inevitable vertical reaction force, which is the main cause of derailment accident. The vertical reaction force of dowty retarder increases with the increase of vehicle speed, which is determined by the structure and dynamic characteristics of pressure valve of dowty retarder. Fluid flow through the pressure valve increases with vehicle speed.
