CLAIMS

1. A valve assembly comprising:

a valve body having spaced inlet and outlet ports separated by an intermediate valve seat in open communication with the inlet and outlet ports; a first piston reciprocal within a bore in the valve body, the piston including a valve member being adapted to sealingly mate with the valve seat; an adapter body secured to an open end of the bore in the valve body; a second piston reciprocal within a bore in the adapter body, the second piston having a portion adapted to extend into the bore in the valve body for contacting the first piston;

a solenoid assembly operable to open and close a conduit connecting a source of pressurized gas to the bore in the valve body above the first piston and to the bore in the adapter body above the second piston; and

a first check valve in the conduit positioned between the solenoid assembly and the bore in the adapter body above the second piston;

a second check valve, the second check valve positioned in a pilot conduit above the second piston;

wherein the first check valve opens and the second check valve closes when the solenoid assembly is energized; and

wherein the first check valve closes and the second check valve opens when the solenoid assembly is un-energized, the second check valve adapted to close when an inlet pressure to the second check valve falls below the tension of a spring of the second check valve.

2. The valve of claim 1 wherein the first and second check valves are ball check valves that are biased toward a closed position by a spring.

3. The valve of claim 1 further comprising a stem which is moveable to adjust an activation pressure of the second check valve.

4. The valve of claim 3, wherein the stem extends from the valve and is externally accessible to adjust the activation pressure of the second check valve.

5. The valve of claim 1 further comprising a biasing member for normally biasing the valve member away from the valve seat.

6. The valve of claim 1 further comprising a bleed hole through a portion of the first piston providing a fluid pathway connecting the valve body outlet port to the bore in the valve body.

7. The valve of claim 1 wherein the valve has only a single solenoid valve.

8. The valve of claim 1 further comprising a gage port associated with the pilot conduit providing the ability to monitor the spring coil pressure of the second check valve.

9. The valve of claim 1 , wherein the second piston includes a portion adapted to extend into the bore in the valve body for contacting the first piston.

10. The valve of claim 1 , wherein the portion of second piston adapted to extend into the bore in the valve body is adjustable to optimize the partial opening of the valve when the second piston is pushed fully downward toward the first piston.

11. A refrigeration valve assembly comprising:

a valve body having spaced inlet and outlet ports separated by an intermediate valve seat in open communication with the inlet and outlet ports; a first piston reciprocal within a bore in the valve body, the piston including a valve member being adapted to sealingly mate with the valve seat; a biasing member for normally biasing the valve member away from the valve seat;

an adapter body secured to an open end of the bore in the valve body;

a second piston reciprocal within a bore in the adapter body, the second piston having a portion adapted to extend into the bore in the valve body for contacting the first piston;

a solenoid assembly operable to open and close a conduit from a source of pressurized gas to the bore in the valve body above the first piston and to the bore in the adapter body above the second piston; and

a first check valve in the conduit between the solenoid assembly and the bore in the adapter body above the second piston;

a pilot conduit connecting the inlet and the bore in the adapter body above the second piston;

a second check valve, the second check valve positioned in the pilot conduit above the second piston;

wherein the first check valve opens and the second check valve closes when the solenoid assembly is energized; and

wherein the first check valve closes and the second check valve opens when the solenoid assembly is un-energized, the second check valve adapted to close when the inlet pressure falls below an activation pressure of the second check valve and the activation pressure of the second check valve is

adjustable.

12. The valve of claim 11 wherein the first and second check valves are ball check valves that are biased toward a closed position by a spring.

13. The valve of claim 11 further comprising a stem which is moveable to adjust the activation pressure of the second check valve.

14. The valve of claim 1 1 wherein the stem extends from the valve and is externally accessible to adjust the activation pressure of the second check valve.

15. The valve of claim 11 further comprising a biasing member for normally biasing the valve member away from the valve seat.

16. The valve of claim 11 further comprising a bleed hole through a portion of the first piston providing a fluid pathway connecting the valve body outlet port to the bore in the valve body.

7. The valve of claim 1 1 wherein the valve has only a single solenoid valve.

18. The valve of claim 11 further comprising a gage port associated with the pilot conduit providing the ability to monitor the spring coil pressure of the second check valve.

19. The valve of claim 1 1 , wherein the second piston includes a portion adapted to extend into the bore in the valve body for contacting the first piston.

20. The valve of claim 1 1 , wherein the portion of second piston adapted to extend into the bore in the valve body is adjustable to optimize the partial opening of the valve when the second piston is pushed fully downward toward the first piston.
