Flyball governor for flow control

A water turbine spins the governor, which control the water flow, which feeds the turbine, creating a speed-regulated machine.

When the flow is too strong, the water turbine and the violet governor shaft rotates faster than the set velocity. By centrifugal force, the green arms regulates the orange valve to reduce the flow.
