HPV16-30 Valve
U.S. Patent 8,253,063 SYMBOL:
HPV16-30 Valve symbol


A high pressure, solenoid-operated, pressure-compensated, spool-type, normally closed,
priority type proportional flow control valve. It can be used as a priority-type flow regulator with
pressure-compensated, regulated and bypass flow. It can also be used as a restrictive-type
2-way, pressure-compensated flow regulator when the bypass line (port 2) is blocked.

With inlet flow at port 1, the HPV16-30 will regulate priority flow out of port 3 regard-less of
system working pressure, with flow rate proportional to the current applied to the solenoid.
Excess flow will bypass out of port 2. The bypass flow can be used for auxiliary function
Note: When used as a bypass flow control in applications where the priority flow port will be
blocked by external valving, bypass pressure drop will increase unless a small amount of
leakage is provided for the priority port. In restrictive mode applications, bypass port 2 has to
be blocked. Flow rate out of port 3 remains proportional to current applied to the solenoid
regardless of load (pressure) applied to port 3. Consult factory.
