PV72-20 Valve

PV72-20 Valve symbol
A solenoid-operated, two-port, pressure-compensated, spool-type, normally closed when
de-energized, proportional flow control valve.

The PV72-20 will regulate flow out of port 2 regardless of system working
pressure. With increasing current applied to the solenoid, the PV72-20 will increase output flow.

Manual Override: To Engage: Turn clockwise approximately 1 turn to reach start point.
Continue another approximately 5 turns to full shift.
To Disengage: Turn counterclockwise approximately 6 turns until positive stop is found.

• Choice of two regulated flow ranges
• Excellent linearity and hysteresis characteristics.
• Hardened spool and cage for long life.
• Efficient wet-armature construction.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Cartridges are voltage-interchangeable.
• Unitized molded coil design – waterproofing standard.
• Manual override option.

   coils with only one O-ring above the coil. See Cartridge Installation, page 9.020.1 for cartridge,
   coil and coil retainer installation. To assure proper function, coil retainer must be installed.

The EVDR Series controllers are recommended for use with most HydraForce
proportional valves. These newer electronic controllers are versatile, reliable,
and easily configured and customized for a wide range of applications.
See the EVDR Product Selection Guide.
