Valves and Orifices
Variable local restrictions for fluid flow control
Use these blocks to model orifices, valves, valve actuators, and forces associated with valves and orifices in the thermal liquid domain.
Fundamental Valve Components
|Flow Coefficient Parameterized Valve (TL)||Valve with flow area modeled in terms of its Cv or Kv flow coefficient|
|Orifice (TL)||Constant-area or variable-area orifice in a thermal liquid system|
Directional Control Valves
|2-Way Directional Valve (TL)||2-way directional valve in a thermal liquid network|
|3-Way Directional Valve (TL)||3-position directional valve in a thermal liquid network|
|4-Way 3-Position Directional Valve (TL)||Valve for routing flow at the junction of four lines in a thermal liquid network|
|Check Valve (TL)||Valve for the prevention of flow aimed counter to its intended direction|
|Pilot-Operated Check Valve (TL)||Check valve with control port to enable flow in reverse direction|
Flow Control Valves
|Poppet Valve (TL)||Poppet flow control valve in a thermal liquid network|
|Gate Valve (TL)||Gate valve in a thermal liquid system|
|Temperature Control Valve (TL)||Flow control valve with temperature-based actuation|
Pressure Control Valves
|Pressure Reducing Valve (TL)||Pressure reducing valve in a thermal liquid network|
|Pressure Relief Valve (TL)||Pressure relief valve in a thermal liquid network|
|Pressure Compensator Valve (TL)||Pressure compensator valve in thermal liquid network|
Valve Actuators and Forces
