When oil pressure in the valve control system drops below 20 psi (1.2 bar) for any reason such as the detection of an engine overspeed condition, the valve or will close.
The HVX Pressure to Latch Open Valve can be used with an automatic or manual system. Refer to the System Selection Guide for more information.
