Comatrol introduced the PFD10-OD Proportional Flow Divider for compensated flow sharing between two motors or hydraulic circuits. This circuit-saver solution takes the input flow and delivers precise flow management, giving engineers a new tool for distributing flow on their applications.
The PFD10-OD is an electro-proportional, compensated, normally open, flow dividing, pre-engineered HIC. When there is no current applied to the coils, the inlet flow is divided equally between the work ports A and B, with flows up to 40 LPM (10.7 GPM). The flow ratio between the 2 ports will proportionally vary as current is given to the coils (from 0 to 40 LPM out each work port). The valve’s internal pressure compensation of both work ports give repeatable and load-independent flow control to both work ports / circuits.
It can be applied to dual circuits or motors that continuously require flow, and need to proportionally manage the amount of flow between them. The built-in pressure compensator provides repeatable flow sharing performance, regardless of the loads on the circuits or motors.
The PFD10-OD can be ordered using its nomenclature to specify options needed for the application, like coil voltage and termination, port sizes and seals. The aluminum manifold design is optimized for a small space claim on the vehicle, with two standard mounting holes.
The coils are for incorporation on machine control architecture that utilizes Sauer‐Danfoss PLUS+1™ hardware. To add PFD10-OD to your application using PLUS+1 GUIDE software just drag-and-drop.
