PILOT OPERATED RELIEF VALVE U.S. PATENT # 7,137,406

Overview

Description

RV12-26X is a screw in, cartridge style, pilot operated (two stage), spool type relief valve, intended for use as a pressure limiting device in demanding hydraulic circuits which require fast response and low hysteresis

Operation

The RV12-26X blocks flow from port 1 to port 2 until sufficient pressure is present at port 1 to force the pilot relief off its seat, allowing the main stage to shift, opening port 1 to port 2

note: this valve cannot be used in cross-over relief applications

Features

  • Adjustments cannot be backed out of the valve.
  • Adjustments prohibit springs from going solid.
  • Hardened spool and cage for long life.
  • Optional spring ranges to 240 bar (3500 psi).
  • Rapid, smooth response to pressure surges.
  • Cost-effective cavity.
