DC08-40 Valve

DC08-40 Valve symbol

A screw-in, cartridge-style, dual, pilot-operated, hydraulic check valve
for blocking or load-holding.

The DC08-40 will block flow from 1 to 2, and from 4 to 3. Flow is allowed in
the opposite direction when pressure is applied to port 2 and/or port 3.
The valve has a 3:1 pilot ratio, so at least 1/3 of the load pressure at port 1 or 4
is required at the pilot lines (ports 2 or 3) to open the flow passage to allow flow from ports 1 or 4.
The check is spring-biased at 1.7 bar (25 psi) to assure holding in a static or no-load condition.
An optional spring biased at 9.3 bar (135 psi) is available.

• Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
• Low pressure drop.
• Compact size.

Operating Pressure: Inlet: 240 bar (3500 psi)
Inlet Flow: up to 19 lpm (5 gpm)
Maximum Internal Leakage at 207 bar (3000 psi): 0.25 ml/minute (5 drops/minute)
Pilot Ratio: 3:1
Check Spring Bias: 1.72 bar (25 psi) standard; with sealed piston option: 6.2 bar (90 psi) minimum
Temperature: -40 to 100° C (-40 to 212° F) with Buna seals;
   -26 to 204° C (-15 to 400° F) with Fluorocarbon seals;
   -54 to 107° C (-65 to 225° F) with polyurethane and urethane seals
Filtration: See page 9.010.1
Fluids: Mineral-based or synthetics with lubricating properties at viscosities of
   7.4 to 420 cSt (50 to 2000 sus); See Temperature and Oil Viscosity, page 9.060.1
