Another Optimized Solution from Sun Hydraulics!

highlight-zinc_nickel1 Complementing already available corrosion resistant valves that have external stainless steel parts, Sun Hydraulics now offers zinc-nickel plating on an initial selection of cartridge valves.

Stainless is the choice for the best corrosion resistance. However, zinc-nickel offers better resistance than standard zinc, with standard zinc protecting to 24 hours in salt fog and zinc-nickel protecting to 1000 hours.

At only $20.00 list more than standard zinc for X controls, and $30.00 more for L controls, zinc-nickel valves are a competitive alternative for corrosion resistance. Machine designers, engineers, service technicians and owners may find zinc-nickel plating an ideal balance of price and performance for certain applications and industries including:

  • Alternative energy: wind and solar
  • Agricultural: fertilizing and spraying
  • Construction
  • Marine

Zinc-nickel is now available on the following models (Contact Sun for additional models):

  • CB** counterbalance valves with X or L control
  • CW** 4-Port vented counterbalance valves with L control
  • CK** pilot operated check valves with X control
