This article mainly investigates how orifice structure influences the characteristics of steady-state flow force. The research model of this paper is originated from a cartridge proportional valve. Firstly, predicting characteristics of the flow force working on poppet in different types of orifice through CFD simulations; secondly, several parameters of poppet and seat, which may affect the characteristics of flow force, are defined, a series of CFD calculations were conducted to find a rule

Finally, a test bench was established to validate the simulation results. The results show that the orifice type has a significant influence on flow force, which indicates that choosing certain type of orifice can effectively decrease the influence of flow force, and the negative effect of flow force can be reduced within an acceptable extent. Besides, the influence of orifice on pressure difference has been also taken into account. The experimental results agree well with the simulative one.
