Abstract:

The report is a detailed account of the design and operation of a tester for hydraulic amplifier type transfer valves. The design is so arranged that it will handle the normal linear valve and the new acceleration switching variety. The valve tester was originated because of the great difficulty experienced by BendixMishawaka and APL in their procurement and testing of Moog transfer valves. A second motivation for the valve tester was the problem of defining what was wrong with a valve that failed in the missile during its normal checkout and MST. The actuators and instrumentation for measuring valve volumetric flow rates are designed to easily scale from large to small flow rate valves such as Talos wing servo and Terrier homing head valves respectively.
