PR08-32 Valve

PR08-32 Valve symbol

A screw-in, cartridge-style, direct-acting, spool-type, hydraulic pressure
reducing/relieving valve with internal pilot and internal spring chamber drain,
designed to act as a pressure-regulating device for secondary circuits. It is
intended for use in stable input flow circuits.

In its steady state, the PR08-32 allows flow to pass bidirectionally from 2 to 1, with
the spring chamber constantly drained at 3. On attainment of a pre-determined pressure
at 1, the cartridge shifts to block flow at 2, thereby regulating pressure at 1. In this mode,
the valve also will relieve 1 to 3 at a variable value over the set reducing pressure.
Note: Direct-acting PR series valves may not be suitable for some static load applications.
Consult factory.
