PD42-M42 Valve

PD42-M42 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-M42 allows flow between 3 and 2 while blocking at 4.
On remote pilot signal at 1, the valve shifts to allow flow between 3 and 4 while blocking at 2.
Since 4 is common to the spring chamber, pressure on 4 will directly (1:1) affect the pilot
pressure required, 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 at all ports: 246 cc/minute (15 cu. in./minute);
   With the sealed pilot there is no leakage at maximum operating pressure
Pilot Pressure Required:
   To Begin Spool Movement: 11.9 bar (172 psi)
   To Bring Spool to Cross-Over Point: 14.5 bar (210 psi)
   To Fully Shift the Spool: 17 bar (245 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;
