EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced availability of its new Vickers® direct-acting relief valves that provide a compact and cost-effective solution for handling high pressure and flow requirements in primary metal, press (metal and nonmetal), marine, offshore, civil engineering, and general market applications.
“Unlike competitive styles, our new direct-acting relief valves are rated for industrial applications, which typically have a much higher duty cycle,” said Wayne Wang, product manager.
Direct replacements for competitive styles, Vickers direct-acting relief valves are an economical solution for safety circuits. They offer a rated pressure of 400 bar and flow up to 350 LPM. The valves are available in cartridge, subplate, and inline mounting styles in sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 25 and 30.
