EC50-42 Valve

EC50-42 Valve symbol


A screw-in, cartridge-style, high pressure, priority-on-demand, pressure-compensator with a static load
sense, intended to provide priority flow in the required amount, while allowing excess flow to be used for
auxiliary functions.

With inlet at port 3, the EC50-42 will deliver required priority flow at 4, regardless of load pressure.
Excess flow exits at 2. Port 1 is the load sense port. All ports may be fully pressurized.

• High pressure.
• Priority-on-demand.
• Static load sense.
• Hardened parts for long life.
• Quiet, modulated response.
• Industry-common cavity.
