Webtec, the hydraulic measurement and control company, based in Milwaukee, WI are enhancing their range of three-port flow control valves while simultaneously improving their efficiency by up to 33%, making hydraulic systems run cooler while also using less energy.
The VFD range of flow control valves, which are suitable for regulating the speed of hydraulic motors while also splitting a single input flow into two, to power a second system, will be capable of regulating flows from 1.5 up to 50 gpm, all at pressures up to 6,000 psi. The VFD family also offers pressure compensation, ensuring the priority flow is virtually unaffected by variations in pressure on either of the downstream circuits, unlike many competitive valves.
In a further addition to the range, the popular 30 gpm range of VFD flow control valves will also be available with a remote proportional control option, utilizing a motor drive mounted on the valve that can be controlled from the cab of a vehicle either using a potentiometer or analog signal.
