PV72-31 Valve

PV72-31 Valve symbol
A solenoid operated, three-port, pressure-compensated, spool-type, normally open when
de-energized, proportional priority flow control valve.

The PV72-31 provides priority regulated flow at port 3 with pressure compensated regulated and
bypass flow. The regulated flow is inversely proportional to electric current applied to the
solenoid. Priority flow will decrease with increasing current applied to the solenoid.

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.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Efficient wet-armature construction.
• Cartridges are voltage-interchangeable.
• Unitized, molded coil design.
• Coil waterproofing standard.
• Manual Override option.

   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.
