The Selection of related accessories for pneumatic control valves


A pneumatic control valve is one of the important links of automatic control process instrumentation. The correct selection is essential to the normal operation of the system. The selection of the pneumatic control valve is in addition to the commonly used parameters such as pressure, temperature, caliber, material, and control valve structure. Need to implement, but also pay attention to related accessories. The main accessories of pneumatic control valves are valve positioner, solenoid valve, valve position feedback, air set, lock-up valve, air reply valve, etc. The main accessories are described below. The selection principle:

1. Valve positioner

The valve positioner is the main accessory of the pneumatic actuator. It is used in conjunction with the pneumatic actuator to improve the position accuracy of the valve, overcome the influence of the friction force of the valve stem and the unbalanced force of the medium, so as to ensure that the valve is realized according to the signal from the regulator Position it correctly. The valve positioner is used to convert the 4-20mA control signal into a pneumatic signal to the pneumatic actuator, thereby driving the regulating valve to perform the regulating function. Valve positioners are divided into mechanical positioners and intelligent positioners. Intelligent positioners have higher control accuracy and lower air consumption than mechanical positioners. In addition, they can also be equipped with HART protocol functions.

2. solenoid valve

When the system needs to achieve program control or two-position control, a solenoid valve is required. When selecting a solenoid valve, in addition to considering AC and DC power supply, voltage and frequency, attention must be paid to the relationship between the solenoid valve and the regulating valve. It can be equipped with "normally open" or "normally closed".

If it is required to increase the capacity of the solenoid valve to shorten the action time, two solenoid valves can be used in parallel or the solenoid valve can be used as a pilot valve in combination with a large-capacity pneumatic relay.

3. air relay valve

Air relay valve is a kind of power amplifier, which can send the air pressure signal to a far place to eliminate the lag caused by the lengthening of the signal pipeline. It is mainly used between the field transmitter and the regulating instrument in the central control room. Or between the regulator and the on-site regulating valve, there is another function to amplify or reduce the signal.

4. the converter

The converter is divided into the gas-electric converter and the electric-gas converter. Its function is to realize the mutual conversion between gas and electric signals. It is mainly used to control 010mA or 4 20mA electric signal conversion or 0100KPa gas signal into 010mA or 420mA electric signal.

5. Air set

The air set is an accessory in industrial automation instruments. Its main function is to filter and purify the compressed air from the air compressor and stabilize the pressure at the required value. It can be used for various pneumatic instruments and solenoid valves. , Air supply and voltage stabilizing device for cylinders, spraying equipment, and small pneumatic tools.

6. Lock-up valve

Lock-up valve is a device to maintain the valve position. Pneumatic regulating valve, when the air source fails, the device can cut off the air source signal, keeping the pressure signal of the membrane chamber or cylinder in the state immediately before the failure, so that the valve position is also maintained at the position before the failure. To keep in place.

7. valve position transmitter

When the regulating valve is far away from the control room, in order to accurately understand the valve switch position without on-site, it is necessary to equip with a valve position transmitter, that is, the displacement of the valve opening is converted into an electrical signal to the control room according to a certain rule. The signal can be a continuous signal reflecting any opening of the valve, or it can be regarded as the reverse action of the valve positioner.

8. Limit switch

The limit switch reflects the two extreme positions of the valve switch and sends out an indication signal at the same time. Based on this signal, the control room can judge the switch state of the valve in order to take corresponding measures.
