High Country Valve Driver Card Setup Video Tutorial*


Take a look at this video tutorial which shows the procedure to set up the minimum and maximum values on a 4-20ma High Country Valve Driver Card on a Schwing Bioset Piston Pump Hydraulic Power Pack. After the Valve Driver Card is set up, PLC Values should correlate to the minimum and maximum speed references.

NOTE: This procedure is only to be used if you get a Valve Driver Card that has not already been set up by Schwing Bioset, Inc.

Pump Troubleshooting Guidelines

Schwing Bioset Piston Pumps1. If a pump gets to the end of the stroke and pressures out, it's most likely that a switching valve is bad. 

2. If a pump is machine gunning, check the check valves on the control block. 

3. If a pump has high pipeline pressure, verify the lube pump is turned on and working properly. 

4. If a pump is slamming hard at the end of the stroke, check the setting on the throttle valves on the control block or verify that material is present. 

5. If there is excessive heat noted anywhere on the pump unit, most likely there is a bad component in that area.
