Hydraulic Flow-Control Valve

The hydraulic flow-control valve is used to restrict fluid flow from a high-flow-rate power source, necessary for proper operation of some hydraulic components, such as swing clamps and fluid-advanced work supports. It provides a controlled flow rate in one direction, and unrestricted free flow in the opposite. It is a compact design that installs directly into a 1/4″ BSPP port.

The hydraulic flow-control valve provides controlled flow in the direction from the tubing connection to the port connection, and free flow in the opposite direction. It is designed to be installed in the port of each cylinder, to control the speed of each component individually. This method, using one valve per cylinder, provides the most consistent timing of actuation.

Besides, the hydraulic flow-control valve can also be adjusted to another version, providing controlled flow in the direction from the port connection to the tubing connection, and free flow in the opposite direction. This version can be installed in the port of the pressure source, to control the speed of all components with one valve. This method, with only one valve for an entire group of cylinders, provides the greatest economy whenever consistent timing is not important.

The hydraulic flow-control valve is available to in-line mounting with one 1/4″ BSPP port and one compression nut for 5/16″ O.D. tubing. It can be mounted in any position, horizontal or vertical.
