72 SERIES SERVOVALVES

 

The 72 Series flow control servovalves are throttle valves for 3 and preferably 4-way applications.They are a high performance, two-stage design that covers the range of rated flows from 25 to 60 gpm at 1000 psi valve drop.The output stage is a closed center, four-way sliding spool.The pilot stage is a symmetrical double-nozzle and flapper, driven by a double air gap, dry torque motor. Mechanical feedback of spool position is provided by a cantilever spring.The valve design is simple and rugged for dependable, long life operation.

 

These valves are suitable for electrohydraulic position, speed, pressure or force con-trol systems with high dynamic response requirements.

 

Principle of operation

 

An electrical command signal (flow rate set point) is applied to the torque motor coils, and creates a magnetic force which acts on the ends of the pilot stage armature.This causes a deflection of armature/flapper assembly within the flexure tube. Deflection of the flapper restricts fluid flow through one nozzle which is carried through to one spool end, displacing the spool.

 

Movement of the spool opens the supply pressure port (P) to one control port, while simul-taneously opening the tank port (T) to the other control port.The spool motion also applies a force to the cantilever spring, creating a restoring torque on the armature/flapper assembly. Once the restoring torque becomes equal to the torque from the magnetic forces, the armature/flapper assembly moves back to the neutral position, and the spool is held open in a state of equi-librium until the command sig-nal changes to a new level.

 

In summary, the spool position is proportional to the input current and with constant pressure drop across the valve, flow to the load is proportional to the spool position.

The actual flow is dependent upon electrical command signal and valve pressure drop.The flow for a given valve pressure drop can be calculated using the square root function for sharp edge orifices:

 

Q [gpm] = calculated flow

 

QN [gpm] = rated flow

 

∆ p [psi] = actual valve pressure drop

 

∆ pN [psi] = rated valve pressure drop

TYPICAL SUBPLATE MANIFOLD

 

Null Adjust: Flow out of Control Port B will increase with clockwise rotation of null adjust screw (3/32 hex key).

 

The mounting manifold must conform to ISO 10372-06-05-0-92.

Surface to which valve is mounted requires a √32 [∆∆ ] finish, flat within 0.002[0.05] TIR.

 

Standard electrical connector mates with MS3106F14S-2S or equivalent.

 

 

Note: Before applying electrical signals, the pilot stage has to be pressurized.

 

Procedure to Configure a 72 Series Servovalve for External Pilot Operation

 

  1. Remove the set screw from the “X” port on the base of the valve using a 1/8'' Allen wrench.

 

  1. Thread a #2-56 screw into the o-ring plug that is now visible and remove it from the “X” port.

 

  1. Remove the four (4) socket head cap screws and lockwashers that retain the cover plate for the field replaceable filter, using a 3/16'' Allen wrench.

 

  1. Use one of the screws to pull the filter and filter housing out of the filter cavity of the body. The filter housing has two (2) o-rings on its O.D.The housing will come part way out, then stop after the second o-ring passes the internal relief in the body. At this time it may be easier to remove the visible o-ring and carefully pry the housing and filter out with two opposing flat blade screw drivers, than to continue pulling on the screw. Be careful not to damage the o-ring groove.

 

  1. A bore will be visible inside the body cavity where the o-ring plug must be inserted.

 

  1. Retain the o-ring plug with the set screw.

 

  1. Re-install the filter and filter housing in the cavity.

 

  1. Re-install the filter cover, retaining screws and lockwashers.Torque the screws to 85 in-lbs.
