To simulate throttled flow, the valves were actuated to the half-open position followed by the application of a 1/2- to 1-second burst of pressurized argon at 50 psig.
As the throttled flow drops below the capacity of the screw pumps, the PLC signals the gate to reopen in increments, until the pump capacity is matched once again, or the gate is fully open.
