VSD05M Solenoid Actuated Directional Control Valves


A Design Series

GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS
RECOMMENDED FLUID Petroleum, water-based fluids (not more than 40% water) and most phosphate esters. Other fluids may be acceptable, but special O-rings may be required. Viton seals standard. FLUID TEMPERATURE RANGE Fluid temperature up to 200 F. (93 C.) will not appreciably affect valve performance. However, for safety reasons, temperatures above 130 F. (54 C.) are not recommended. RECOMMENDED OPERATING VISCOSITY 80 to 350 SUS (16 to 70 CS). FILTRATION ISO 18/16/13 or better. MOUNTING POSITION Any unrestricted position acceptable. Horizontal mounting preferred. NFPA FLOW PATH/ACTUATING PATTERN SOLENOID, AIR AND OIL ACTUATED: Actuating operator a - connects flow to cylinder port A. Actuating operator b - connects flow to cylinder port B. NOTE: NFPA flow path/actuating pattern is reversed for spool code L. GENERAL INFORMATION SOLENOID ACTUATED Spring centered and spring offset valve types will be spring positioned unless actuated continuously. Detented, no-spring valves may be actuated momentarily. When solenoid is not actuated, the spool will remain in last position attained, provided there is no severe shock, vibration or pressure surge. Pressure surges in a common tank line serving these and other valves can be great enough to cause inadvertent valve shifting. This is particularly critical in the no-spring, detented type valves. Separate tank lines may be necessary. NOTE: Any sliding spool valve held shifted under pressure for long periods may stick and not spring return due to fluid residue formation. To prevent sticking, valves should be cycled periodically. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE After Directional Control Valves have been put in operation, provide periodic inspection and maintenance. The check points listed below will assist you in extending the life of your Continental valves. Fluid Operating Temperature Fluid temperature at the reservoir during operation should be kept between 100 F. and 130 F. (37 C. and 54 C.).

CAUTION Before performing any service operation on any Directional Control Valve, be sure that all pressure has been relieved from BOTH SIDES of the system. CAUTION Before performing any service operation on any Directional Control Valve, disconnect or lock off power supply. CAUTION Before manually actuating any Directional Control Valve, be sure that any resulting machine function will not endanger persons or equipment. PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION Each Directional Control Valve has an Ordering Code printed on its cover label. See Figure 1 for the location of the Ordering Code.

Fluid Cleanliness Control particle contamination by changing or cleaning all filter elements periodically BEFORE they become clogged and start to by-pass. Electrical Inspection Periodically check to assure proper voltage, and that all electrical connections are making good contact. After Extended Shutdowns Some types of hydraulic fluids become tacky after long periods of non-use. Manually actuate valves several times after extended shutdowns to assure that all components move freely before powering up. CAUTION Before manually actuating any Directional Control Valve, be sure that any resulting machine function will not endanger persons or equipment.

VSD05M VALVE REPAIR PROCEDURES


DISASSEMBLY and REASSEMBLY GENERAL Disassembly and reassembly of Directional Control Valves is a delicate operation. Anyone attempting it must assume responsibility for the operation of the valve. Continental valves may be returned to the factory or to an Authorized Repair Center for repair. Contact your local Distributor or Continental Hydraulics for details. If interchanging spool types or making other conversions, restamp the escutcheon plate to show
Solenoid Assembly

the correct code. Include stops, spool, spring, and detent orientation. See Figure 2 to serve as a guide to correct numbering. Disassembly in the field by other than an Authorized Repair Center technician, whether for repair or modification may void warranty. Before disassembly, study the exploded view below and note the orientation and location of all parts. Note that the spring retainers are used only in the assemblies that are spring centered. Special care should be taken to avoid damage to the spool and/or body bore. Even a microscopic nick in a land on the spool or body may ruin the valve. All valves can be disassembled and reassembled in a horizontal-mounted position, provided there is adequate space and the work area is clean. Place the spool in a bath of clean oil to coat it with a protective film, and ease assembly. Inspect o-rings for nicks, and make sure they are well oiled. Its a good idea to replace all seals whenever the valve is disassembled. Continental valves are precisely machined to exacting tolerances. Do not force any parts, or overtighten threaded fasteners.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE PROBLEM Erratic or binding valve spools. POSSIBLE SOLUTION Drain and flush the system. Disassemble valve and check spool and plug assemblies for burrs or other damage. Replace parts as necessary. Improper installation. See page 1 for valve flow path/actuating patterns. Check electric connections and circuit breakers. Confirm that hydraulic fluid type and viscosity meet specifications given on page 1. Improper reassembly or reinstallation. See page 2 for reassembly information. See page 1 for valve flow path/actuating patterns. Confirm that hydraulic fluid type and viscosity meet specifications given on page 1. Check for leaking seals. Replace as needed. Check voltage to determine that it is within 10% of rating. See page 3. Check that opposing solenoids are not being energized simultaneously. Check that solenoid is energized long enough to ensure complete shift. Confirm that there is no internal leakage in the cylinder, and that there are no fluid leaks in the power system. If no other sources of leakage are found, disassemble valve and check for wear or scoring on body bore and spool. Replace defective parts.

New valve does not function.

Overhauled valve does not function.

Valve leakage. Repeated solenoid burnout.

Detent spool does not shift properly. Cylinder controlled by valve wont hold its load.
