Sectional Directional Control Valve – DX-6
The DX-6 is a sectional valve designed for max. operating pressures up to 350 bar and max. pump flows up to 180 l/min with “Q-inlet”. For standard inlets without flow regulator the recommended max. pump flows is 140 l/min.
The valve is available with 1 to 10 working sections per valve assembly. DX-6 includes as standard a variety of sections, spools, spool controls and additional parts in a modular design. That makes the valve very flexible. The valve is, as standard, setup for both manual and remote control. The manual controlled sections can either be with open spool ends or encapsulated. The encapsulation decreases in a significant way the risk for external leakage and makes the valve well adapted for applications in demanding environment.
The spool controls for remote control are generally designed as complete modules for assembling on one of the valve sides.
DX-6 is in first place designed as an open center valve for fixed displacement pumps but can also be configured for variable displacement pumps. It is available with manual, hydraulic or electro-hydraulic proportional remote control. DX-6 can be fully adapted for marine applications. The valve offers excellent operating characteristics, and good controllability on a wide range of machinery due to the specially designed spools. Low and uniform spool forces are the result of careful balancing of the flow forces.
The DX-6 is ideal for applications where you need excellent control characteristics such as cranes, sky-lifts, garbage trucks, excavators, etc…
