Hydraulic Proportional – Construction of Proportional Valves

Proportional spools slide in cast body
– No sleeve, in main stage (unlike a servo valve)
– Robust construction similar to on/off directional valves
– High flow capacity
– Low cost

Throttle area normally formed by notches cut into spool

Notch size and geometry determine flow capacity for a given housing
