Sun LoadMatch™ Valves Save Energy!

Sun LoadMatch(TM) Valves Save Energy
Sun's patented LoadMatch™ valves save energy by reducing fuel consumption. Many machines operate at loads well below maximum capacity. LoadMatch™ valves automatically control their setting at reduced loads to minimize energy wasted during machine cycles at less than full loads.

A test of Sun LoadMatch valves on a Mi-Jack MJ 50C Travelift Gantry Crane (260 hp) used to load/unload shipping containers from trucks and rail cars lowered fuel consumption by 1 gal/hr, a savings of about $4 for every hour of operation.

If you are interested in saving operating costs and making your machine more “environmentally friendly”, consider using Sun LoadMatch energy-saving counterbalance valves for load holding operations.
