New load-sensing, low-flow PVG 16 is the next step in proportional valve configuration.
Sauer-Danfoss has developed the first load-sensing valve in its portfolio for the low-flow segment. The PVG 16 facilitates the integration of load-sensing system design and electro-hydraulic actuator technology, bringing high productivity, lower total system costs and easier fulfillment of emissions and safety regulations. Based on proven PVG technology and components, the PVG 16 is rated for a flow of up to 65 l/min [17.2 gpm] and work port pressure of up to 400 bar [5,800 psi]. Municipal vehicles, agricultural equipment, small cranes and construction machinery are among the key applications.
"The higher efficiency required for hydraulic equipment in response to emissions and functional safety requirements have highlighted a need for advanced system design and performance," says Morten Clausen, PVG Product Marketing Manager.
PVG 16 is the next step in the PVG technology platform. Along with its modular design, characteristic of the entire PVG family, the valve makes use of established building blocks in the PVG design toolbox. For example, the pump inlet module and endplate are identical to those of the PVG 32, preparing the PVG 16 for seamless integration in customised valve stacks, accommodating everything from simple to complex functionalities.
The use of proven PVG technology and components ensures high-level quality and robustness. Through this application, Sauer-Danfoss contributes to a new standard for customised machine system design and robust OEM production.
A new actuator, the PVE Series 6 provides the valve with its electro-hydraulic platform. Incorporating a microcontroller for closed loop control, the actuator delivers excellent spool control and built-in fault monitoring.
