Size and Flow Capacity:
S45 valves come in various sizes, with different flow capacity options to accommodate a wide range of hydraulic systems.
The size and flow capacity are typically specified in terms of liters per minute (LPM) or gallons per minute (GPM).
Number of Sections:
S45 valves are available in different configurations with varying numbers of sections or spools. Each section or spool represents a separate hydraulic function. Common configurations include 1-section, 2-section, 3-section, and 4-section valves, but custom configurations are also available.
These valves can be equipped with various control options, such as manual levers, hydraulic pilot control, or electronic control through solenoids. The choice of control method depends on the specific application and operator preferences.
Directional control of hydraulic cylinders (e.g., extending or retracting)
Flow control for hydraulic motors
Pressure relief and pressure-reducing functions
Load-holding and locking functions
Priority flow control for multiple hydraulic functions
These valves are designed to operate within specific pressure ranges. Common pressure ratings for S45 valves include 2500 PSI (pounds per square inch) or 3500 PSI, but higher-pressure options may also be available for specialized applications.
Sealing and Leakage Control:
S45 valves incorporate high-quality seals and O-rings to minimize leakage and ensure efficient hydraulic operation.
Proper sealing is critical to prevent hydraulic fluid loss and maintain system performance.
The S45 valve can be mounted in various orientations to suit different equipment layouts and hydraulic system designs. Common mounting options include inline mounting and manifold mounting.
These valves are designed to operate within specific temperature ranges, typically from -20°C to 80°C (-4°F to 176°F). This ensures reliable performance in diverse environmental conditions.
Maintenance and Serviceability:
Regular maintenance is essential to prolong the lifespan and reliability of the S45 valve. Fortunately, these valves are designed for ease of maintenance, with easy access to internal components and replaceable wear parts.
