FD50-44

FLOW DIVIDER/COMBINER

Overview

Description

The FD50-44 is a screw-in cartridge, spool type flow divider/combiner valve

Operation

The valve provides pressure compensated proportional division of inlet flow or combining of two return flows regardless of system operating pressure conditions. The valve is intended for use in mineral based or synthetic hydraulic fluids with lubricating properties

Features

  • Choice of flow ranges.
  • Quiet, modulated response.
  • Wide operating flow range.
  • Accurate division or combination of flow.
  • Optional corrosion-resistant plating.
  • Industry-common cavity.
