Abstract

Background: The overflow valve, as an essential pressure control element, is widely applied in various hydraulic transmission systems because of its characteristics of constant pressure overflow, stable pressure, system’s unloading and safety protection. The research on the structure and working principle of the overflow valve is beneficial to improve the working efficiency and operating stability of pressure control of the hydraulic transmission. Therefore, the development trend of the overflow valve for pressure control has been paid more and more attention.

Objective: To meet the growing demands for the working efficiency and operating stability of hydraulic transmission, the structure of the overflow valve for pressure control such as direct-acting overflow valve and pilot-operated overflow valve is being improved continuously.

Methods: This paper retraces various current representative patents relative to the structural device of direct-acting overflow valve and pilot-operated overflow valve for pressure control.

Results: Through investigating a large number of patents on the overflow valve for pressure control, the main existing problems, such as low working efficiency and poor operating stability are summarized and analyzed. Moreover, the development tendency of the overflow valve for pressure control in the future is also discussed.

Conclusion: The optimization of the structure of the overflow valve for pressure control is conducive to improve working efficiency and operating stability. More correlative patents will be invented in the future.

Keywords: Direct-acting, overflow valve, operating stability, pilot-operated, pressure control, working efficiency.
