Eaton announced the new ESVL9 screw-in cartridge valve (SiCV), a five-way, three-position proportional solenoid valve.
Featuring a patent-pending, integrated load-sense check control, the solution provides a 21 percent manifold size reduction compared to the external checks available with many five-ported directional control valves on the market today.
The size 10 Eaton ESVL9 valve integrates the external check control within the main cartridge for a more efficient package. In addition to providing a compact platform, Eaton’s valve allows customers to optimise flow forces and improve metering of flow to the spool–providing stable, even and manageable proportional control. While competitive offerings leverage only one spring to control metering of the spool, the ESVL9 valve utilises two springs for increased functionality.
Additionally, Eaton’s ESVL9 valve was tested in over 30 design cases with full-complicated fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, resulting in optimised geometry for advanced engineering and design. Eaton’s SiCV portfolio provides engineers and operators with a comprehensive range of valve offerings for both stationary and on/off highway equipment.
Eaton’s SiCVs come in a variety of pressure and flow rates, and options that are designed to stand up to the most extreme environments.
