PATENT INFORMATION

Some of Sun Hydraulics’ products are protected by one or more U.S. or foreign patents. Patent numbers are listed on the product web page wherever applicable.

PRODUCT LIMITED WARRANTY & LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY

Sun Hydraulics warrants that its products will, under normal use and operation as specified in the manufacturer's literature, be free from defects in material, workmanship, and design for a period of three years from and after their installation date, provided their installation date is less than one year after their manufacture date.

O-rings and seals are specifically exempted from this warranty.

Sun Hydraulics' liability under this warranty shall extend only to repair or replacement, f.o.b. Sun Hydraulics' factory, of any product determined by Sun Hydraulics' inspection to be defective and warranted.

Sun Hydraulics disclaims any and all other warranties, conditions, and representations (whether statutory, express, or implied, oral, or written) with respect to its products, including, but not limited to, any and all implied warranties or conditions of fitness or suitability for any particular purpose (whether or not Sun Hydraulics knows, has reason to know, has been advised, or is otherwise in fact aware of any such purpose), whether alleged to arise by law, course of dealing, course of performance, or custom or usage of trade.

Sun Hydraulics cannot and does not accept responsibility for or warrant any of its products that have been subjected to improper installation, improper application, negligence, tampering, misuse, abuse, damage, or which have been repaired, altered, or modified outside of Sun Hydraulics’ factory.

In no event shall Sun Hydraulics be liable to any buyer or end user of any of its products for any incidental, consequential (including, but not limited to, lost profits, business, or other pecuniary loss), indirect, punitive, or special damages arising out of or in any manner incident, relating, pertaining, or attributable to its products, Sun Hydraulics’ liability being limited to the value of the product sold or an obligation to repair or replace a defective product.

WARRANTY INFORMATION, PERFORMANCE ASSURANCE, & APPLICATION LIMITATIONS

Sun Hydraulics manufactures a variety of cartridge valves that will fit into the same Sun cavity. Each cartridge is marked with a seven-digit part identification code and a four-digit date code, stamped on the hex surfaces. Designers and users of Sun components are advised that physical interchangeability of cartridges does not necessarily mean functional interchangeability. When replacing any Sun cartridges, users should first check with the manufacturer’s service literature, their local Sun distributor, or the Sun factory before making any part substitutions.

NOTE: To avoid serious injury, the manufacturer’s service literature must be consulted before working on any hydraulic system.

All Sun cartridges valves are individually tested at the factory and preset to specific pressure or flow settings where indicated in this product listing. However, as the actual performance of buyers’ equipment cannot be reproduced in Sun’s testing laboratory, assurance of suitability of Sun products in the buyer’s application is the responsibility of the buyer. This is typically accomplished by the manufacture of a prototype followed by a test or qualification program on the part of the buyer.

Sun product designs and manufacturing facilities have been specifically developed to provide products for commercial, industrial, and mobile hydraulic applications, and Sun products are only warranted for these types of uses. Sun’s distributors are not authorized to approve the use of Sun products in any of the following applications:

  • Any product that comes under the U.S. Federal Highway Safety Act, including, but not limited to, steering or braking systems for passenger-carrying vehicles or on-highway trucks;
  • Aircraft or space vehicles;
  • Ordnance equipment;
  • Life support equipment;
  • Any end product that comes under the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission rules and regulations, including, but not limited to, products used in nuclear power plant operations.

Specific written approval for any application of Sun products in any of the above named applications should be obtained from Sun Hydraulics. Consultation with Sun distributors or factory engineers is advisable in any situations where applicability is questionable.
