This action compresses the return spring and opens a vent port in the Main Disc. the Valve Assembly is similar to the On/Off version except for certain trim modifications which provide for: Proportional positioning of the Pilot Disc Stable and smooth follow of the Main Disc relative to the Pilot Disc positioning Valve operation is similar to the On/Off Valve except that the solenoid current is modulated by an electronic positioner to modulate magnetic force. which is attached to the Pilot Disc and is attracted upward toward the Fixed Core. a magnetic force is generated between the Plunger and the Fixed Core. the current is removed. the Control Pressure above the Main Disc decreases. As the vent port closes.On/Off Valve Operation On/Off To actuate the valve. provides for Main Disc actuation when the system is depressurized. causing the Main Disc to lift. An incremental increase in power to the coil results in an incremental movement of the valve trim. The current magnetizes the Plunger. As the vent port opens. allowing the return spring to move the Plunger and Pilot Disc downward. along with the return spring. Any movement of the Main Disc will change the area of the pilot discharge orifice thereby restoring the force balance required to maintain the position of the Main Disc as determined by the location of the Pilot Disc. The mechanical coupling. Stable control of the Main Disc position is assured. the magnetic force and return spring force is balanced anywhere between zero and full stroke. Position feedback is inherent in the hydraulically coupled Pilot Disc/Main Disc arrangement. To close the valve. closing the vent port in the Main Disc. which. causes the Main Disc to move downward. By selecting an appropriate spring rate and preload. Valve Closed Pilot Disc Lifts Modulating For Modulating Service. thus positioning the Pilot Disc to any desired position. This force is proportional to the electric current supplied to the coil. the Control Pressure above the Main Disc increases. by means of the link pin. closing the valve. An increase in power to the coil is required to move the Pilot Disc from point A to point B. Control Pressure Vents Valve Open (Main Disc Lifts) 5 . opening the valve by developing a differential pressure across the disc.
