CHARLOTTE, N.C.– HAWE Hydraulics announces the release of type CLK, a pressure control valve with an added safety function. This additional feature provides operational ease within hydraulic systems where temperature increases and/or external load peaks can lead to unnecessary results. The CLK is ideal for use in workholding, machine tool and clamping system applications.
The seated valve, when closed, is leakage free thus eliminating the need for additional check valves or continuous re-feeding, which would normally be required with conventional spool type pressure reducing valves. This valve provides flow rates of up to 5.8 gpm at 380 bar (5500 psi) for systems with a maximum pressure of 500 bar (7250 psi). It is built as a screw-in cartridge valve, where the mounting cavity can be manufactured easily. Other versions of this valve are designed for mounting within valve banks reducing the pressure for subsequent valves or as part of the NG6 intermediate plate for individual pressure control of a consumer.
