SYMBOL:
NV10-21 Valve symbol

DESCRIPTION
A screw-in, cartridge-style, variable orifice, hydraulic flow restrictor valve.
It is intended for applications requiring fine adjustment over multiple turns.

OPERATION
The NV10-21 increases its orifice value from fully-closed to fully-open with
counterclockwise adjustment rotation. Effective adjustment is linear to eight turns.
Note: This is intended as a low-effort adjustment suitable for operation through linkage.
It may be unsuitable in environments where vibration is present.

FEATURES
• Adjustments cannot be backed out of the valve.
• Hardened parts for long life.
• Fine/Low-effort adjustment.
• Linear adjustment.
• Positive shut-off.
• Industry-common cavity.
