Research of Experimental System for Pressure Reducing Valve Performance and Life Test


Article Preview

This paper addressed the completed researching and developing procedure for the whole system with below parts: The pipe part of the whole system which according to the principle of the pressure reducing valve and the related standard; The electrical control system, adjusting control system, data collection system; We simulated customer’s operating on the valve based on PLC controlling the action of the Solenoid Valve which achieved the goal for life test .Meanwhile the paper introduced PPI protocol with which PLC computer communication each other. The experimental data of current capacity test, pressure characteristic test, flow coefficient (Cv) test and life test show the performance of the whole system is good.
