Air gaging relies on a law of physics that states flow and pressure are directly proportionate to clearance and react inversely to each other. As clearance increases, airflow also increases and air pressure decreases proportionately. As clearance decreases, airflow also decreases and air pressure increases. This is accomplished by having a regulated airflow that travels
