A screw in, cartridge style pressure compensating element,intended for use with a remote fixed or variable orifice to yield a three port (bypass type), pressure compensated, flow - regulating hydraulic valve.
The EC12-40 maintains a constant flow rate from port 3 regardless of load pressure changes in the circuit downstream of port 3. The cartridge maintains a constant differential pressure from circuit point P to port 3 (see USA/SI symbol), thereby regulating the hydraulic flow rate between the two points in the circuit. The EC12-40 is a priority type regulator, delivering pump flow first to port 3, then bypassing excess to port 2. All ports maybe fully pressurized.
- Hardened parts for long life.
- Quiet, modulated response.
- Cost-effective cavity.
