Motion control valves are sometimes referred to as over-centre or counterbalance valves. They are designed to provide smooth, precise control of moving loads and avoid the over-running of load conditions.
The HydraForce CB10-30 motion control valves distributed by Oilpath Hydraulics are poppet style valves. They are specifically designed for use in low flow situations and are not a just a modified high flow valve. They have a flow rate to 5 gpm (19 lpm) at 3000 psi (207 bar) with three standard spring ranges available up to 207 bar (3000 psi), which means that users are able to tailor these motion control valves to suit different applications.
CB10-30 motion control valves have a 7:1 Pilot ratio with low 10 drop per minute internal leakage at up to 85% of pressure setting. This not only reduces leakage, but provides greater stability and control of moving loads.
To ensure that a high level of safety is maintained, the ideal use for motion control valves is to screw them into an actuator or actuator mounted housing. CB10-30 motion control valves can be incorporated into various systems without the need for any additional tools. They also meet HydraForce Quality standards and come with 5-year warranty.
