    Position of the controling diaphragm.
  27. Automatic unloading valves are installed to exhaust to what major components?
    Main and auxiliary condenser.
  28. What is the function of the unloading valve?
    to discharge steam from the auxiliary exhaust line to the condenser wheneever the auxiliary exhaust exceeds 15 psi.
