Proportional Flow Control Valve
- Proportional solenoid valve:
The proportional flow control solenoid valve converts the input current signal into a mechanical signal output, and then controls the flow. This type of proportional valve has fast response time, compact in size, and is suitable for installation on manifolds. Available flow ranges are 0-32L/min, 0-140L/min, 0-300L/min.
- Stepper-controlled proportional valve for air and liquid:
KaoLu stepper-motor driven proportional valves control flow ranging from 0 to 20 LPM, 120 LPM, 300 LPM and up to 1000 LPM. Our stepper-motor driven proportional valves are ideal for controlling a variety of media such as water, gas, oil, etc. KaoLu stepper-motor driven flow proportional valves also have the advantages of low hysteresis (<2%) and high resolution (20ml/min).
This valve is used for dosing, that can dispense as low as 1 mL of water. Takes 0-10V, 4-20mA or RS85 signal to change orifice. All models can customize wet material to stainless steel, consult a factory for customization.
FC120 series precision flow control valve can reach a life time of 10 million cycles of full open to full closure. Takes 0-10V, 4-20mA or RS85 signal to change orifice.
Takes 0-10V, 4-20mA or RS85 signal to change orifice. All models can customize wet material to stainless steel, consult factory for customization.
KLPV-HP valve has the feature of high flow rate up to 310 L/min and working pressure between 0 – 20 barg. It is capable of repeatable tuning of air flow rate with quick response time. It is compact, light, that is suitable for applications such as medical ventilator, anesthesia, gas blending …etc. KaoLu is proud to offer stable proportional solenoid valve to some medical ventilator and anesthesia equipment manufacturers around the world.
Proportional Flow Control Valve Applications
Introducing latest Stepper-Controlled Proportional Flow Control Valve
What is a Stepper Motor?Stepper motors are brushless DC motors that rotate in steps electronically set by a controller or drive. Stepper motors are ideal for applications that require speed and precise position control, especially at low speeds such as in automation, motion systems, and 3D printers. Due to their internal design which minimizes mechanical and electrical "delays" that occur in other motors, stepper motors have remarkable stopping accuracy and responsiveness. Often, this makes stepper motors an ideal choice for synchronous and high precision operations.
Energizing the coils of a stepper motor in the right sequence to achieve a single step is a complex task. KaoLu provides a PM series stepper motor controller that allows you to solve this task. There are two types of stepper motor drives—constant voltage (L/R drive) and constant current (chopper drive). If you're interested in learning more, please refer to our News section.
Drivers simplify the operation of a stepper motor by interpreting a digital step and direction signal from a controller and energizing the motor coils accordingly. All electronics are governed by Ohm's Law and the relationship between current rise and inductance. With stepper motors, the motor's design (in regard to its coils) prevents current from increasing quickly during pulses (command signals), which means the current can never reach its peak value without very high voltage. This is a problem because without sufficient current, the torque will be low, especially at high motor speeds. To combat this, chopper drives perform what is known as Pulse Width Modulation (PWM).
KaoLu’s FC series proportional control valve utilizes an ultra fine thread, which is smooth, proportional, accurate, and stays in the position with high torque.
Now, couple that with a stepper motor that gives you precision, speed, and is ultimately automated with any bipolar chopper drive you wish to use.
Anywhere there is a needle valve that is controlling the flow of gas, can now be remotely located, automated, monitored and automatically adjusted to meet whatever demand you have in your application. Four of the main advantages of this our proportional flow control valve; System Integration, Very Low Hysteresis, Low Power consumption, & Specific Flow Curve capabilities exceeding 1000 LPM.
