Miniature Preset Flow Control
Miniature Preset Flow Controls maintain a constant flow in one direction and full flow in the opposite direction. The operation of the Flow Control is based on the movement of a small disc, which shifts within the housing as the pressure differential changes from forward to reverse. An orifice restrictor is encased in the center of the disc and a flat surface on one side of the disc seals and permits flow through the orifice.
The amount of flow permitted in the reverse direction, which is the sealing side, is determined by the orifice size. The amount of flow permitted in the forward direction is full flow. Miniature preset flow controls are available in 1/16 I.D., 1/8 I.D., 0.070 I.D. and 10-32 female port options with orifice sizes ranging from 0.012” to 0.040”.
