Low-flow load-sensing valve

The PVG 16 load-sensing valve is designed for the low-flow segment. The valve combines load-sensing-system design and electrohydraulic actuator technology. The PVG 16 is rated for flow up to 65 liters/min (17.2 gpm) and work port pressure up to 400 bar (5,800 psi). The valve’s pump inlet module and endplate allow for seamless integration in customized valve stacks. The PVG 16 features a new actuator – the PVE Series 6 – that gives the valve its electrohydraulic platform. Incorporating a microcontroller for closed-loop control, the actuator provides good spool control and built-in fault monitoring.
