Check valve in the return line

Check valve in the return line

RE: Check valve in the return line

No idea what the purpose of the 5 bar pressure switch is. You do not indicate what it is electrically connected to.
The 5 bar check valve is there because some component requires minimum 5 bar pressure in the return line.
The check valve on the telescoping cylinder input is indicated as pilot-operated to permit return flow to allow cylinder to collapse.

RE: Check valve in the return line

Is it possible that the switch is set to just above the pressure the check valve induces when there is an actual flow? Then when the flow stops (cylinder stalls on the way down or reaches the fully closed position) the switch will indicate that this condition has occurred.

Just a thought smile

Hello guys, thanks for participating.

Thanks for the tip. I thought it myself. This is really confusing because I have a meter-out throttle valve in the line. I don't know why do they have to make additional pressure drop.

The switch is set at 5 bar, the same value like the check valve spring.

RE: Check valve in the return line

The 5-bar check valve creates the pilot pressure to open the pilot-operated check valve on the cylinder port to allow the cylinder to retract.
