FR10-32 Valve
U.S. Patent 6,167,906

FR10-32 Valve symbol

A screw-in, cartridge-style, manually-operated, pressure-compensated, bi-directional,
hydraulic flow regulating valve. An internal compensator spool provides compensated flow
across the proportional orifice regardless of flow direction.

The FR10-32 provides regulated flow in both directions, from port 2 to port 3, or from port 3 to port 2.
Port 1 should be blocked. Regulated flow increases from closed to fully open with clockwise rotation.
The valve will maintain the set flow rate regardless of pressure variations at each of the ports.

• Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
• Various adjustment options.
• Excellent linearity and hysteresis.
• Adjustable orifice.
• Bi-directional.
• Industry-common cavity.
