FR50-23 Valve

SYMBOL:
FR50-23 Valve symbol

DESCRIPTION
A screw-in, cartridge-style, adjustable, pressure-compensated, restrictive-type, hydraulic flow
regulating valve for operation up to 345 bar (5000 psi).

OPERATION
The FR50-23 maintains a constant flow rate out of port 2 regardless of load pressure changes
in the circuit downstream of 2, or upstream of 1.
The regulated flow increases from closed to fully open with counter-clockwise rotation of the
adjustment screw. The valve will maintain the set flow regardless of pressure variations on the
regulated or inlet port. Reverse flow from 2 to 1 bypasses the control orifice.

FEATURES
• Hardened parts for long life.
• Quiet, modulated response.
• Industry-common cavity.
