PD42-M41 Valve

PD42-M41 Valve symbol
A screw-in, cartridge-style, pilot-operated, spool-type, hydraulic directional valve
for three-way circuits requiring remote pilot actuation.

In neutral (unpiloted), the PD42-M41 allows flow from 3 to 4 while 2 is blocked.
On remote pilot signal at 1, the valve shifts to open from the 3 to 2 flow path,
while blocking flow from 4. Note that 4 is common to the spring chamber.
Pressure on 4 will directly (1:1) affect required pilot pressure and must always
be added to the bias spring value.
Note: Consult factory for applications where bi-directional flow is required when
the valve is in the normal or spring-offset position.

• Hardened spool and cage for long life.
• Optional sealed pilot
• Industry-common ISO cavity.

Operating Pressure: with Polyurethane seals: Ports 1, 2, & 3: 345 bar (5000 psi);
   Port 4: 210 bar (3000 psi)
Flow: up to 265 lpm (70 gpm)
Internal Leakage at maximum operating pressure: Ports 2, 3, & 4: 246 cc/minute (15 cu. in./minute);
   Port 1: 524 cc/minute (32 cu. in./minute);
   With the sealed pilot there is no leakage at 1 at maximum operating pressure
Pilot Pressure Required:
   To Begin Spool Movement: 11 bar (160 psi)
   To Bring Spool to Cross-Over Point: 16.2 bar (235 psi)
   To Fully Shift the Spool: 18.3 bar (265 psi)
Oil Volume Required to Full Shift: 2.5 cc (0.15 cu. in.)
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 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
Installation: No restrictions; See page 9.020.1
