SF20-23 Valve

SF20-23 Valve symbol

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

When de-energized, the SF20-23 allows flow from 2 to 1 and from 1 to 2. 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).

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