Webtec FDC140 hydraulic flow valve designed for heavy-duty applications.
Webtec unveiled its FDC140, a high-accuracy hydraulic flow divider-combiner valve. Designed to drive two cylinders or motors in close unison, the spool valve offers a flow capacity of 140lpm (37 gpm) and above. FDC140 valves can divide a single flow into two separate flows. These will always be in the same ratio to one another regardless of any pressure differential (unequal load). The FDC140 delivers accuracy of ±1.5%. A single flow can also be divided into two unequal flows, with split ratios extending from 10-90% (in 10% increments). Another feature of the three-port FDC140 is its maximum working pressure rated at 350 bar (5000 psi). Featuring an SG iron body, steel components and NBR seals, the FDC140 can be used with HLP mineral and synthetic oils, as well as HFC fire-retardant fluids. Operating fluid temperatures extend from -30 to +100°C (-22 to +212°F).
