SF08-21 Valve

SF08-21 Valve symbol

A solenoid-operated, 2-way, normally open, piloted poppet-type, screw-in hydraulic
cartridge valve designed for low leakage in higher pressure load-holding applications.

When de-energized, the SF08-21 allows flow from 2 to 1, while flow from 1 to 2 is
severely restricted. When energized, the valve closes, blocking flow from 2 to 1. In this
mode, flow from 1 to 2 will be allowed after overcoming the solenoid force. This requires
3.4 to 10.3 bar (50 to 150 psi).
For bi-directional capability, see model SF08-23, page 1.051.1.
Operation of Manual Override Option: To override, push and hold override button.

• Continuous-duty rated coil.
• Corrosion-resistant plating.
• Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Cartridges are voltage interchangeable.
• Unitized, molded coil design.
• Manual override option.
• Optional waterproof E-Coils rated up to IP69K.
• Industry common, compact size.
