Danfoss Power Solutions (Ames, Iowa) recently added two new high-flow proportional valves to its PVG portfolio.
The new valves, PVG 128 and PVG 256, are designed to be easily integrated with the company’s current high performance proportional valves. They add modularity from low to high hydraulic flow in the same valve stack.
High-flow valves are used in applications where flow and durability is needed. Using PVG 128 and PVG 256 with other valves allows for OEMs to enhance machine performance and improve productivity and lower energy consumption.
“We designed the PVG 128 and PVG 256 valves to offer as much value as possible to our off-highway OEM customers. They can use these valves to achieve the high flow necessary for their demanding applications, but can combine them with the PVG 32 and PVG 16 for lower flow functions in their machines as well,” Knud Meldgaard Jensen, global product marketing manager for Danfoss Power Solutions, said in a press release.
The new high-flow valves also help extend the range of hydraulic flow in the PVG series up to 300 liters per minute with the PVG 128 and up to 400 liters per minute using the PVG 256. The PVG 256 valve comes in a special turbo version that can increase hydraulic flow up to 500 liters per minute.
“By keeping the same design concept as the PVG 32 and PVG 16 valves, our customers can easily add and combine the PVG 128 and 256 valves into their custom design,” Melgaard said. “The valve modularity ensures OEMs can easily optimize their machine using the entire PVG valve range – saving on space, weight and costs.”
