Hawe LHK Load-Holding Valve


The Hawe LHK valve is a type of pressure control valve. It is designed to prevent loads on cylinders or motors dropping in an uncontrolled manner, during for operations not generally adapted to oscillations. This means it is pre-loaded with a pressure setting that is higher than the largest possible load. A hydraulic piston controls the opening of the valve to achieve the required lowering velocity.

It is possible to fit shock valves and shuttle valves, with or without restrictor check valves, to delay the release of hydraulic brakes. Numerous adjustment options and various configurations are available.

Technical specifications of the Hawe LHK include:

  • Maximum pressure: 350-400 bar
  • Flow rate: 20-100 litres per minute

Common applications include cranes, construction machinery and lifting devices.
