PV70-30 Valve

PV70-30 Valve symbol
A solenoid-operated, three-port, pressure-compensated, spool-type, normally closed
when de-energized, proportional flow control regulator. 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 PV70-30 will regulate flow out of port 3 regardless of system working pressure.
With an increasing current applied to the solenoid, output flow will increase.
Note: Avoid dead-heading of prioirty line by external valving to prevent blocking of
bypass line. 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.
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.

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.
