PRIORITY ON DEMAND PRESSURE COMPENSATOR WITH STATIC LOAD SENSE

Overview

Description

EC56-42 is a screw-in, cartridge style, priority on demand pressure compensator valve with static load sense. Intended to provide priority flow in required amount, while allowing excessive flow to be used for auxiliary functions

Operation

With inlet flow at port 3, the EC56-42 will deliver required priority flow at port 4 regardless of load pressure. Excessive flow exits at port 2 and port 1 is the load sense port. All ports may be fully pressurized

Features

  • High pressure.
  • Priority-on-demand
  • Static load-sense.
  • Hardened parts for long life.
  • Quiet, modulated response.
  • Industry common cavity.
  • Optional corrosion-resistant plating for 960-hour salt spray per ASTM B117.
