Back-to-back check/shuttle valve with signal at port 2

Capacity: 2.5 gpm10 L/min. | Cavity: T-13A
CDAC : Back-to-back check/shuttle valve with signal at port 2
Technical Features [ + ]

The back-to-back check valve combines two simple check valves into a single cartridge. It connects the higher of two work ports to the signal or common port. It features an external load port located in the hex-end of the cartridge and the signal is sensed at port 2.

  • Back-to-back check cartridges feature hardened, spherically lapped, guided poppets and a lightly stressed helical spring that result in excellent wear characteristics and extremely low leakage rates.
  • The back-to-back checks do not provide a means of lowering a signal. They will trap a high signal if the load pressures drop to a lower pressure. Some means of bleeding off the signal should be provided.
  • Incorporates the Sun floating style construction to minimize the possibility of internal parts binding due to excessive installation torque and/or cavity/cartridge machining variations.

FAQs [ + ]

There are exactly 250 Sun drops in a cubic inch or 15 in a cc.

Direct-acting valves are used to prevent over pressure, and pilot-operated valves are used to regulate pressure. If you are unsure, use a direct-acting valve. Sun's direct acting valves are very fast, dirt tolerant, stable, and robust. Sun's pilot-operated valves are moderately fast, they have a low pressure rise vs. flow curve, and they are easy to adjust.
