What Can A Servo Valve SM4-20(15)57-80/40-10-S182 Do?

Steam turbine servo valve SM4-20(15)57-80/40-10-S182 can do many things. The steam turbine servo valve can receive the control signal of the turbine speed control system, such as the signal of the governor position sensor or the control signal of the automatic speed control system; It also converts control signals into hydraulic signals to control the movement of hydraulic cylinders or hydraulic motors; Moreover, the steam turbine servo valve can change the position of the speed governing mechanism, achieve the purpose of controlling the speed of the steam turbine, and realize the speed governing of the steam turbine; It can also ensure that the turbine speed accurately follows the change of the control signal to achieve fast and smooth speed regulation.

How to Keep the Servo Valve in Best Function?

To ensure the smooth operation of the steam turbine servo valve SM4-20(15)57-80/40-10-S182, it is necessary to ensure that the power supply is stable, the voltage is accurate, and the frequency is accurate; The hydraulic oil supplied shall be clean, sufficient and stable; The connecting pipeline shall be well sealed without leakage; All parts shall move flexibly and accurately without jam and interference; The control system shall be normal and can accurately receive and output control signals; Regularly maintained to ensure reliable operation of servo valve.


What to do if repair is needed?

The steam turbine servo valve SM4-20(15)57-80/40-10-S182 needs regular maintenance and cleaning during use, but some problems need to be noticed during maintenance and cleaning. During maintenance, it is necessary to check whether each component is normal, damaged or worn, especially the position sensor, solenoid valve and hydraulic cylinder, and timely replace or repair the defective components to ensure the reliable operation of the servo valve. However, due to the hydraulic oil in the servo valve during cleaning, dirt and carbon deposit will be generated after long-term use, and regular cleaning is required. Special cleaning fluid can be used to clean the servo valve one by one after disassembly. The dirt on the part with carbon deposit shall be thoroughly removed, and then the assembly and tested test shall be carried out to ensure that the servo valve is cleaned before it is put into use.
