Sauer-Danfoss has developed the first load-sensing valve in its portfolio for the low-flow segment. The PVG 16 facilitates the integration of load-sensing system design and electrohydraulic actuator technology – bringing high productivity, lower total system costs and easier fulfillment of emissions and safety regulations.
Based on proven PVG technology and components, the PVG 16 is rated for a flow of up to 65 l/min [17.2 gpm] and work port pressure of up to 400 bar [5,800 psi]. Municipal vehicles, agricultural equipment, small cranes and construction machinery are among the key applications.
PVG 16 is the next step in the PVG technology platform. Along with its modular design – characteristic of the entire PVG family – the valve makes use of established building blocks in the PVG design toolbox.
For example, the pump inlet module and endplate are identical to those of the PVG 32, preparing the PVG 16 for seamless integration in customized valve stacks, accommodating everything from simple to complex functionalities.
A New Standard for Customization
The use of proven PVG technology and components ensures high-level quality and robustness. Through this application of existing knowhow and flexibility, Sauer-Danfoss contributes to a new standard for customized machine system design and robust OEM production.
A new actuator – the PVE Series 6 – provides the valve with its electrohydraulic platform. Incorporating a microcontroller for closed loop control, the actuator delivers excellent spool control and built-in fault monitoring. High tolerance towards temperature variations ensures a robust, reliable valve performance in all conditions.
The Sauer-Danfoss PVG valve family also includes the PVG 32, PVG 100 and PVG 120 – providing flow up to 240 l/min [63.4 gal/min].
