In means lor over‐riding an automatic altitude control, the connection between the blower outlet and the pressure‐responsive device is provided with a leak or pressure‐relieving device operated by the pilot moving his throttle control beyond a stop, gate, or like obstruction. The figure shows the throttle valve f6 connected to a floating lever f1 actuated by the pilot's control f3 and by a relay device d2, the controlling valve b of which is connected to a pressure‐responsive device a supplied with blower pressure through a pipe g. This pipe is connected to a branch g2 leading to the atmosphere at g3 and controlled by a valve g6, which is opened by the pilot's throttle control f3 when this is moved beyond the stop, &c. A restriction g1 in the pipe g prevents damage due to back‐fires, and an adjustable restriction g4 is also provided in the branch g2. A valve b2, connected to the valve g6, may be provided as described in Specification 348,868 for substituting atmospheric pressure for blower‐outlet pressure in the relay device. Specifications 351,117 and 356,619 also are referred to.
