Operation
The AMES Model 950-01 / 650-01 Rate of Flow Control Valve is designed to automatically limit flow rate
to a constant, adjustable maximum and close drip-tight when downstream pressure becomes greater than
upstream pressure. It is controlled by a normally open, differential control pilot designed to: 1) Open (allowing
fluid out of the main valve cover chamber) when the differential pressure across the orifice plate is below it’s
adjustable set point, and, 2) Close (allowing fluid to fill the main valve cover chamber) when the differential
pressure across the orifice plate is above it’s adjustable set point. A decrease in differential pressure causes
the valve to modulate towards an open position, increasing flow rate. An increase in differential pressure
causes the valve to modulate towards a closed position, decreasing flow rate.
If downstream pressure becomes greater than upstream pressure, downstream pressure is admitted to the
main valve cover chamber, closing the valve and preventing reversal of flow. Normal flow control operation
resumes when upstream pressure exceeds downstream pressure.
The Orifice Plate Assembly should be installed three to five pipe diameters downstream of the Model
950-01 / 650-01, and field connected with 3/8” minimum copper tubing in accordance with factory
piping schematic. Please specify desired flow rate prior to ordering.

•
Prior to installation, flush line to remove debris.
Install valve horizontally “in line” (cover facing UP), so flow arrow matches flow through the line. Avoid
installing valves 6” or large vertically. Consult factory prior to ordering if installation is other than
described.
Install inlet and outlet isolation valves. NOTE: When using butterfly valves, insure disc does not contact
control valve. Damage or improper valve seating may occur.
Provide adequate clearance for valve servicing and maintenance.
Install pressure gauges to monitor valve inlet and outlet pressure.
Install Orifice Plate Assembly (provided) 3 to 5 pipe diameters downstream of the 950 / 650 with the
sensing connections offset from top of pipeline to avoid air accumulation. The Orifice Plate Assembly
should not be installed next to a butterfly valve.
Connect Orifice Plate Assembly to Rate-of-Flow Pilot using 3/8” diameter minimum copper tubing (field
installed) in accordance with factory piping schematic.
