FUEL SAVINGS OF UP TO 30%
23 October 2012
Parker Hannifin has introduced a new hydraulic directional control valve targeted at mobile applications moving to a more advanced and energy efficient load sensing system from a conventional open centre arrangement.
The VP120 complements Parker’s existing range of valves and uses contemporary flow-sharing technology to address commonly encountered productivity problems associated with pump over-demand conditions.
The new valve, which can be operated manually, hydraulicremotely, or with solenoids, is claimed to be capable of achieving fuel savings of up to 30% compared to open centre systems.
It is rated for a maximum pump input of 160 litres per minute (LPM) and a work section output range of 15 to 120 LPM.
