Hydraulic amplifier:

The electrically controlled hydraulic amplifier is a linear, pilot-valve-operated servo actuator. It


is used when a large force is needed to operate power control mechanisms such as turbine steam
valves and fuel control linkages of large engines.

The amplifier has an internal oil transfer passage designed to receive either a sleeve, an oil plug,
or a transfer valve also called a pressure sensing valve;. The sleeve is installed for single-acting
operation to provide increased work capacity in the increase direction. The plug is used to
provide differential operation.
