Pressure compensator

Pressure compensator

Pressure compensator


I was looking on the modular pressure compensator datasheet and on the bottom of the page there is:

Could anyone explain me why pressure compensator adjustable between 5 and 35 bar corresponds to values between 10 and 70 bar of total ΔP across the valve ??????

When I bought this valve I thought my range will be 5-35 ΔP. As I checked it on my hydraulic test station minimum pressure difference which I can adjust is 10 bar.


RE: Pressure compensator

If you adjust 10bar: the dP will be 10bar between P to A (or B). Because the spool is symmetric: You will have also 10bar between B (or A) to T. The total dP is 20bar.

The connector DIN 43650 forme A 3P+PE is the standard for hydraulic valve. Without led for proportionnal valve.
