Cla-Val Pacific 43-01 and 643-01 Combination Rate of Flow Controller and Solenoid Shut-Off Valves limit the maximum flow rate, regardless of changing line pressure. It is a hydraulically operated, pilot controlled, diaphragm valve. On either model, the pilot control is actuated by the differential pressure produced across an orifice plate installed downstream of the valve. Accurate control is assured as very small changes in the controlling differential pressure produce immediate corrective action of the main valve. A solenoid control is provided to intercept the operation of the differential control and close the main valve.
Models 43-01 and 643-01 includes a orifice plate with a holder that should be installed one to five pipe diameters downstream of the main valve. If the check feature option is added and a pressure reversal occurs, the downstream pressure is admitted into the main valve cover chamber and the valve closes to prevent return flow.
