• Miniature Proportional Valve 0-32L/min
Stepper-Controlled Proportional Valve 0-65L/min
Product Serial: FC-20+PM-20
Proportional Flow Control Valve consists of PM series driver and FC series proportional flow valve. With an input signal either through analogue or digital, the needle inside the proportional valve moves proportionally to the signal. This series is able to control the flow rate of air and liquid with high resolution, high accuracy, and high repeatability. It is developed for industries that require a high degree of adjustment in flow rate.

Series PM driver provides series FC valve with the required power and control signal (step and direction). It controls the step of a bipolar stepper motor with an analogue signal (0-10 VDC/4-20mA/RS485 Modbus).

★ FC and PM series are calibrated in pair. Before operating, please ensure the serial numbers on FC and PM are in pair in order to prevent potential leakage issue.


Product Precautions
  1. Before piping is connected, it should be thoroughly blown out with air (flushing) or washed to remove chips, cutting oil and other debris from inside the pipe.
  2. When screwing together pipes and fittings, etc., be certain that chips from the pipe threads and sealing material do not get inside the piping. When sealant tape is used, leave 1.5 to 2 thread ridges exposed at the end of the threads.
  3. Do not operate in locations having an atmosphere of corrosive gases, chemicals, sea water, or where there will be contact with the same.
  4. Ensure the fluid passing through the valve does not contain solid particles. Please use a filter before the inlet port.
  5. In locations which receive direct sunlight, provide a protective cover etc.
  6. KaoLu’s product cannot be used as an emergency shutoff. A redundant safety system should be installed in the system to prevent serious injury or loss of life.

Warranty
KaoLu Ent. Co. Ltd. products are warranted to the original purchaser only against defects in material or workmanship for 6 months from the date of manufacture. The extent of KaoLu’s liability under this warranty is limited to repair or replacement of the defective unit at KaoLu’s option. KaoLu shall have no liability under this warranty where improper installation or filtration occurred.
