HydraForce EC16-40 Pressure Compensator


The HydraForce EC16-40 is a screw-in cartridge style, pressure compensating element, intended for use with a remote fixed or variable orifice to yield a three port (bypass type), pressure compensated, flow regulating hydraulic valve.

The EC16-40 maintains a constant flow rate from port 3 regardless of load pressure changes in the circuit downstream of port 3. The EC16-40 is a priority type valve, delivering pump flow first to port 3 then bypassing excess to port 2. All ports may be fully pressurized.

Key features include:

  • Hardened parts for long life.
  • Quiet, modulated response.
  • Industry-common cavity.

Pressure ratings:

  • Pressure rating: 241 bar (3500 psi)
  • Proof pressure: 345 bar (5000 psi)
  • Burst pressure: 896 bar (13000 psi)

Flow ratings:

  • Inlet flow rating: 180 lpm (47.5 gpm), maximum
  • Regulated flow: 100 lpm (26.5 gpm), maximum

This valve can be used with mineral based or synthetic hydraulic fluid with lubricating properties
