Webtec (Milwaukee, WI) is introducing its new VFD120E electric-operated variable-priority flow divider. Designed particularly for use on mobile machinery, it allows the speed of hydraulic motors on trailed agricultural attachments and on mining and construction machinery to be controlled remotely. As a three-port pressure-compensated variable-priority flow divider with an electric drive motor, the VFD120E can provide constant flow to a primary system while still powering a secondary system.
Developed for mobile applications, the new VFD120-E can be used to control hydraulic motor and cylinder speeds by applying voltage to the valve, which in turn controls the flow rate. Importantly, Webtec has ensured that the design of the VFD120-E has been optimized to minimize pressure losses across the valve, substantially reducing the energy wasted in the form of heat.
