Enhanced Valve Range Works Up To 420 Bar And Saves You Energy

Webtec, the Cambridge (UK) based hydraulic measurement and control company, are extending their range of three-port flow control valves

by Sam Thompson | Friday 1 April 2016

The range will also simultaneously improve their efficiency by up to 33%, thereby making hydraulic systems run cooler while also using less energy.

The VFD range of flow control valves, which are ideal for regulating the speed of hydraulic motors while also splitting a single input flow into two so as to power a second system, will be capable of regulating flows from 5 lpm up to 150 lpm, all at pressures up to 420 bar. The VFD family also offers superb pressure compensation, ensuring the priority flow is virtually unaffected by variations in pressure on either of the downstream circuits, unlike many competitive valves.

In a further addition to the range, the most popular 120 lpm range of VFD flow control valves will also be available with a remote proportional control option, utilising a motor drive mounted on the valve that can be controlled from the cab of a vehicle either using a potentiometer or analogue signal.

The new additions to the VFD range will be shipping in June 2016, but Webtec will be showing these products for the first time at Bauma, (11-17th April, Munich, Germany), for further information please visit www.webtec.com .
