EC42-M43 Valve

EC42-M43 Valve symbol


A screw-in, cartridge-style, priority-on-demand, pressure-compensator with dynamic load sense.

The EC42-M43 provides priority flow in the required amount, while allowing excess flow to be used for auxiliary
functions. With port 3 providing inlet flow, port 4 will deliver the required priority flow regardless of load pressure.
Excess flow exits at 2. Port 1 is the load sense port. All ports may be fully pressurized.
Note: 0.031 in. (0.79 mm) orifice is recommended to be installed in the load sense line at port 1 for better

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