The EP10-S38 is a screw-in, cartridge style hydraulic directional element.
It is a spring biased poppet valve, which will block port 1 to port 2 or port 2 to port 1 until pressure at port 1 or port 2 exceeds the cumulative pressure at port 3 and bias spring, with no pressure at port 3 flow will be allowed from port 1 to port 2 or port 2 to port 1 once the bias spring force is overcome with pressure at port 1 or port 2. When the element is in closed state the ratio of areas port 1 and port 2 is 1:1 and port 1 or port 2 to port 3 is 1:2.
- Multiple function/application potential.
- Low pressure drop.
- Industry-common cavity.
