SYSTEMS OPERATION
As control air pressure enters the speed setting
bellows through the inlet port, expansion of the bellows
takes place. The bellows pushes down on the speed
setting lever to the left of the pivot. This lifts the right end
of the speed setting lever against the feedback spring
force to close the nozzle to drain.
Supply oil flows through an orifice to the lower
side of the speed setting pilot valve plunger and then to
drain through the nozzle. When oil flow from the nozzle
is stopped by the speed setting lever, oil pressure
increases and the speed setting pilot valve plunger
moves up. This lets control oil go to the top of the speed
setting piston. As the control oil pressure increases, the
speed setting piston moves down to increase the
