Eaton Steering related valves include a comprehensive line of reliable and high efficiency products to satisfy the most demanding requirements. Our major product types include:
- Priority Valves
Steering takes priority with Eaton’s priority valves, ensuring optimum operator safety. Our priority valves are available with in-line and bolt-on options:
- VLC In-Line Priority Valves
- VLC Bolt-on Priority Valves
- VLE In-Line Priority Valves
- LH In-Line Priority Valve
- Check Valves
Designed specifically to withstand the rugged duty cycles of a steering system and perform their functions reliably to prevent kickback in the steering wheel. The check valve is installed directly into the pressure port of Char-Lynn ® steering control unit. Connection of the hose assembly is either a male 37° end or O-ring face seal (ORS). Straight, 45° and 90° elbow configurations are available.
- Brake Valves
Eaton ® Hydraulics’ new load-sensing brake valve makes power brakes an economical and efficient feature on lift trucks. While power brakes in lift trucks can aid productivity, incorporating them into lift trucks has traditionally been expensive. The need for additional flow meant extra plumbing, plus the addition of a dedicated pump or a high pressure accumulator for the brake circuit.
- Flow Divider Valves
Eaton flow divider valves are available with (bypass type) or without (restrictor type) integral relief valves. Adjustable flow control valves are suitable for applications requiring flow regulation without pressure compensation.
- Antijerk Valves
Eaton Antijerk Valves provide smoother steering on articulated vehicles; dramatically reducing jerk when steering is stopped quickly and while making aggressive changes in direction.
- GPS Steer Valves
Char-Lynn® steering unit reliability combined with Vickers™ advanced proportional valve technology provides versatile autoguidance steering products suited for use with tractors, sprayers, combines, motor graders, scrapers and other off-road equipment. Available in open-center and load-sensing configurations, with pressure capability and repeatable accuracy to +/– 2cm with RTK GPS, Eaton autoguidance can be combined with features like Wide Angle™ and Cylinder Damping™ technology to provide the smoothest steering available. Steering units are also available with Q-amp™ and 2-speed, to increase efficiency while maintaining excellent road performance.
- Four Wheel Steer Switching Valves
Four Wheel Steer Switching Valves provide three different types of steering by energizing and de-energizing two high performance, solenoid operated directional control valves (DG4V-3 valves).
