Mechanically operated, back-to-back check valve

Capacity: 1.25 gpm4,7 L/min. | Cavity: T-162DP
CDAQ : Mechanically operated, back-to-back check valve
Technical Features [ + ]

The phaser check is a pair of checks, back-to-back, with both poppets mechanically actuated. The valve is meant to be installed into the piston or rod of a cylinder. When the cylinder reaches the end of its stroke the poppet in the phaser check is shoved off its seat allowing flow through the piston. This allows two cylinders to get back into phase.

  • This valve is not designed to handle side forces. Actuating direction must be axial, and contact surface must be perpendicular to valve axis to within 5°.
  • This valve is NOT meant to be cam operated.
  • This valve is NOT to be used in place of a mechanical stop.
  • Maximum stroke of the poppet must be limited to .047 in. (1,2 mm) by a mechanical stop other than the valve itself.
  • Note: Port 2 of the T-162A cavity is not used with this valve.
  • A cylinder that does its work while extending can put a large load on the rod gland at the end of its stroke. A phaser check in the piston can limit the unnecessary force on the gland.
  • If you need to monitor the pressure in a cylinder, a phaser check can prevent the trapping of a false pressure value by a load holding valve.
  • A phaser check in the piston of a vertically mounted cylinder will bleed air at the end of the stroke.
  • Phaser checks in the pistons of master/slave cylinders will synchronize the cylinders simply by taking the mechanism to the end of its travel in both directions. This lends itself to dual cylinder steering applications.
  • Check valves offer extremely low leakage rates with a maximum leakage of less than 1 drop per minute (0,07 cc/min).
  • 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 [ + ]

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.

Because of the very high ratio, the COFO has limited capacity. The discharge path is across a .050 inch (1,3 mm) diameter orifice. If you have large accumulators combined with low precharge pressures, this may not discharge the energy quickly enough. Using the COFO XDN cartridge in conjunction with an LODA XDN will provide capacity for larger applications.

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

Only external seals are serviceable.  Sun offers replacement seal kits for all cartridge models. The applicable kit part number can be found in the product page's Technical Data table or by using our Cartridge Seal Kit search function located under Accessories. Please note: Converting the external seals from one material to another does not ensure fluid compatibility with that material due to the existence of internal seals within the cartridge.
