PV70-31 Valve

PV70-31 Valve symbol
A solenoid-operated, electrically-variable, 3-port, normally open, pressure-compensated,
proportional flow control, spool-type, screw-in hydraulic cartridge 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.

The PV70-31 will regulate flow out of port 3 regardless of system working pressure.
With an increasing current applied to the solenoid, output flow will decrease.

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.
• Hardened spool and cage for long life.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Efficient wet armature construction.
• Excellent linearity and hysteresis.
• Unitized, molded coil design.
• Coil waterproofing standard.
• Manual override options.

   E-series coils with only one O-ring above the coil. Manual override options M and G
   require Coil Nut Kits. See part numbers below. 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.
