Single ball shuttle valve with signal at port 3

Capacity: 1.25 gpm4,7 L/min. | Cavity: T-163A
CSAX : Single ball shuttle valve with signal at port 3
Technical Features [ + ]

The single ball shuttle connects the higher of two work ports to the signal or common port. The signal is sensed at port 3.

  • Shuttle cartridges feature hardened steel balls and seats for excellent wear characteristics and contamination tolerance.
  • The single ball allows for the decay of the pressure signal when both load ports drop to a lower pressure.
  • 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.

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