The Domin L050 offers a compact solution for NG06 applications

The L050 redefines the art of the possible for a medium flow Direct Drive Valve.  It’s compact size hides a flow performance that competes with many larger NG10 valves. This performance is achieved with a minimum power draw and leakage loss. The L050 is the valve of choice where efficiency is valued.

Rotary to Linear Valve Concept

The L050 gains its advantage from operating the spool valve through a simple crank mechanism. The key to success has been the development of a crank which achieves both high efficiency with near complete absence of backlash. A number of patents cover the features that have led to the design success of the L050. A metallic membrane provides a fluid barrier separating the rotating elements of the valve from the electrical elements of motor and transducer. The configuration removes the need for rotary and internal high pressure seals.

Design enabled by the revolution of Additive Manufacturing

To solve the inherent challenges of the rotary to linear valve concept, Domin engineers have had to use the full design freedom afforded by AM. It has resulted in a unique patented concept using a flexure within the  AM spool to accommodate the lateral motion from the roller bearing drive. The result is a valve with elegant simplicity using the minimum of component parts. Complexity is limited to a few miniature AM components.

Innovation in Design

The remarkable valve performance has been the result of many thousands of hours of analysis, using the latest finite element and computational fluid dynamic tools. Product reliability is assured through thousands of hours of development testing together with a full fatigue evaluation of each deliverable valve.

Innovation for Performance

Domin have brought together the key benefits of a rotary motor drive and Additive Manufacturing to create an exciting blend of performance and size surpassing all other servo valve technologies.

Low Power Consumption / High Dynamics

Domin has been able to achieve exceptional performance and low power consumption. It sets a new industry benchmark in terms of bandwidth over the full operating range of amplitudes.

Low Internal Leakage

The valve employs Domin’s patented rotary valve technology to achieve exceptional dynamic performance with minimal internal leakage. The total on centre leakage for the axis cut valve is typically less than 1 % of maximum flow.

Unsurpassed Power to Weight

The 50 lpm version (@70 bar ∆P) weighs only 475 g and occupies a volume of less than 200 cc. It can achieve a bandwidth in excess of 100 Hz at up to 50 % input command.
