Editorial: The Importance of Default Position in a Valve

The illustration shows two pressure control valves. These are very similar but for the fact that one is normally-open and the other is normally-closed. The primary difference between the valves is the location of main orifice in relation to the spring, piston, and valve seat (or seal). Because these valves use liquid pressure to automatically overcome the pre-set spring force, the liquid moves the normally-closed valve to open, and the normally-open valve to close.
