(Bethlehem, PA www.boschrexroth-us.com) Bosch Rexroth has introduced a complete line of flow diverter valves with flows up to 60 gpm and pressures up to 5000 psi. The flow diverters are modular, allowing up to 5 additional circuits with minimal pressure drop. Zinc-plated steel bodies and IP69 rated coils withstand the most severe operating conditions, making them ideally suited to mobile applications in mining and heavy industry environments.
Rexroth’s flow diverter valves are available as 3- or 6-way single valves, with the option of creating up to 14-way flows using modular diverters. Standard ports allow for electric, manual, or pilot pressure operation, and flow diverters can be positioned next to the control cylinders, making pipe connections easier and more cost-effective. Diverters provide an economical means of “multiplying” hydraulic controls by allowing an operator to select from two distinct operations under control of one directional valve.
Operators also benefit from single-hand operation thanks to push-button control placed on the handle of the directional valve lever. The push-button handle connects to the solenoid, allowing precise control of the required cylinder.
