Eaton Expands Valve Offerings for Heavy-Duty Applications
On Mobile Equipment, Primary Metals Production, Industrial Processes
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced that three new families of valves in the ISO -08 and -10 size range have been added to its Vickers® product line. Intended for high flow, high pressure, heavy-duty applications on mobile equipment, primary metals production equipment, and heavy industrial processes, the new -10 size subplate-mounted valves feature pressure ratings up to 350 bar (5,076 psi). The new -08 size stack valves are rated at 315 bar (4,569 psi).
Both the CG2V-10 and CG5V-10 are pilot-operated pressure relief valves intended for subplate mounting and are compliant with DIN, ISO, CETOP-RP, and NFPA/ANSI port patterns. A key benefit is that the valves can be adjusted via a rotary knob, a hex head screw with protective cap or a lockable rotary knob with a scale. CG2V valves provide only pressure relief while the CG5V model adds a solenoid-actuated unloading function. Both are rated for flows up to 650 lpm (172 gpm).
The XCG2V-10 is a pilot operated pressure-reducing valve controlled from the secondary circuit. It is intended for subplate mounting and complies with DIN, ISO, CETOP-RP and NFPA/ANSI port patterns. Available adjustment mechanisms include a rotary knob, a hex head screw and protective cap, and a lockable rotary knob. Maximum flow is 400 lpm (106 gpm).
The DGMFN-H8 and DGMPC-H8 are ISO size 08 stack valves for use in vertical stacking assemblies. The DGMPC-H8 is a pilot operated check valve that provides a leak-free closure of one or both service ports on the stack. The DGMFN-H8 is a throttle valve with check capability. Maximum flow for the DGMFN-H8 is 350 lpm (92 gpm) and 450 lpm (119 gpm) for the DGMPC-H8.
