[You may download this article at: https://fluidsys.org/downloads/ ] The article looks at the basics of pressure control valves for educational use and is presented here to refresh your memory. Hope you are able to recall the functions, circuits, and applications of pressure control valves. Pressure control valves are used in hydraulic systems for obtaining pressure-related control functions.... Continue Reading →
[ You may download this article at: https://fluidsys.org/downloads/ ] A conventional hydraulic system with a fixed-displacement pump provides a constant flow through the system. When the system develops the set pressure, the pump flow is bypassed through the associated pressure relief valve. As a consequence, the system generates tremendous amount of heat. Even when a variable-displacement pump is... Continue Reading →
[ You may download this article at: https://fluidsys.org/downloads/ ] Hydraulic systems driven by servo valves provide highly accurate control over enormous forces. A servo valve system consists of a transducer, a servo amplifier, a servo valve, and an actuator with a connected load. It is a closed-loop system used for the precise control of the...
