FR10-32

ADJUSTABLE BI-DIRECTIONAL FLOW REGULATOR U.S. PATENT No. 6,167,906

Overview

Description

FR10-32X is an adjustable, pressure compensated, bi-directional flow control valve

Operation

The valve provides regulated flow in both directions from port 2 to 3 or 3 to 2 , port 1 should be blocked. Regulated flow increases from closed to fully open with clockwise rotation. The valve will maintain set up flow rate regardless of pressure variations at each of the ports

Features

  • Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
  • Excellent linearity and hysteresis.
  • Industry-common cavity.
