Storage :

During storage take care that this valve is properly covered and well lubricated. This will prevent ingress of dust and dirt in working mechanism and during commissioning it will be easy to install the same.

Operation :

The Prefill and exhaust valves are designed specifically to eliminate the need for high volume pumps on large press circuits.

Seat type construction.

Allows free flow from port A to port B. Flow from port B to port A can be had by applying pilot pressure to its port X.

Decompression feature enables the valve to open in two stages progressively allowing smooth and rapid exhaust of compressed oil.

The opening and closing of the valve can be influenced by providing throttle cum check valve in port X.

Commissioning :

The things that should be attended to during commissioning are as follows:

The port A should be connected to tank, port B to pressure side and port X to the pilot pressure.

Cap screws and the corresponding tightening torque should be as mentioned in the data sheet.

O' ring (supplied with the valve separately) should first be fitted on the guide. The valve is then slowly and carefully placed inside the cavity. This will ensure proper sealing of the valve.

Maintenance :

The oil must be of prime quality and clean as per ISO code 16/13.

Contaminated oil may lead to the wear of the spool there by increasing clearance between the pilot piston and housing. This results in the improper working of the valve.
