The New HyPerformance™
HCV16-30 Check Valve
For high pressure hydraulic applications where blocking or load-holding is needed, the
HCV16-30 hydraulic check valve provides a new three-way option. The HCV16-30 allows flow from port 1 to ports 2 and 3 while blocking flow in the opposite direction.

The HVC16-30 is the third 16-size check valve in the HydraForce lineup, joining the standard model CV16-20 and the high pressure
HCV16-20, which are both two-way check valves. All three check valves are rated for the same flow 151 lpm (40 gpm) but the HCV16-20 and HCV16-30 are rated for higher pressure
350 bar (5075 psi).
The HCV16-30 offers another industry advantage - lower pressure drop. At full rated flow, the pressure drop for HCV16-30 is only 3 bar (40 psi), compared with 6 bar (90 psi) for the HCV16-20 and 4 bar (60 psi) for the standard CV16-20.

With its built-in SAE fitting, the HCV16-30 can be used as a combined work port check, eliminating the need for an additional, separate fitting in the manifold.

The schematic below shows how the HCV16-30 valve can be applied in a bridge circuit.

In this circuit, hydraulic pressure is provided to Work Ports A and B, which are regulated by two HCV16-30 check valves that block the flow or hold the load until the right pressure is reached in the system.



The HVC16-30 check valve is ideal for these applications:

• Bridge circuits
• Directional control circuits
• Work port check
• Anywhere a 16-size load-holding
  check valve is needed

Features Benefits
Built-in SAE fitting. Can be used as work port check, eliminating a fitting.
Tested to rigorous standard of NFPA specification T2.6.1. Versatility in application, allows flow to two ports instead of just one with lower pressure drop.
